Perspectives on AI and the Industry of the future (Authentise Weekly News-In-Review – Week 72)

The field of AI is nowadays established as a core industrial drive in any advanced country. Its wide-ranging applications make it a valuable asset in almost any kind of operation, enabling businesses with unparalleled, yet constantly improving performance. Today, in an industrial setting, AI is being used for process monitoring, data analysis and predictive modeling. It is not surprising to hear of new partnerships in a field such as oil and gas prospecting, where these capabilities can help predict maintenance periods and better process noisy sensor data. The same approach can be used for example in agriculture, where troves of data from a constellation of devices can provide new insights into operational efficiency. The potential for revenue and economic growth is enormous and the international competition is fiercer than ever. Countries such as India are putting resources towards entering a market led by the US and China, but you can definitely expect the list getting longer. How Manufacturing will use AI beyond predictive maintenance is completely open. We have some ideas. What will you do?

Total and Google to develop AI solutions for oil and gas exploration

Total has signed an agreement with Google Cloud for the joint development of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions to accelerate oil and gas exploration and production. Total Group senior vice-president and chief technical officer Marie-Noëlle Semeria said:

“Total is convinced that applying AI in the oil and gas industry is a promising avenue to be explored for optimising our performance, particularly in subsurface data interpretation.”

How Industrial AI Can Maximize the Potential of Agriculture’s Planting Season

Industrial AI improves the grower life cycle by turning mountains of otherwise unused ag data into meaningful intelligence. It works at machine scale by synthesizing information from different ag data sources – assets, sensors, weather, satellites, and other systems – and surfacing insights, predictions and recommendations growers can act on. Growers can use new intelligence gained from industrial AI seamlessly and autonomously in the context of their daily workflow to make smarter decisions.

India wants to fire up its A.I. industry. Catching up to China and the US will be a challenge

A tech start-up at its office in Gurgaon, India.

India has ambitions to fire up its artificial intelligence capabilities — but experts say that it’s unlikely to catch up with the U.S. and China, which are fiercely competing to be the world leader in the field. An Indian government-appointed task force has released a comprehensive plan with recommendations to boost the AI sector in the country for at least the next five years — from developing AI technologies and infrastructure, to data usage and research.
