The active role of AI in industries’ future

Artificial intelligence has transformed the world through its application for different purposes around the globe. The recurrent use and interest in this technique have led to several developments that rapidly transformed the industrial operating environment through advances in computational techniques. Since 2020 we can notice an accelerated movement of digitalization driven by digital transformation and concepts previously presented in industry 4.0. The technologies developed in these periods and their fast emergence have provided enough visibility for broad application in complex tasks among production processes and industrial operations.     The trend is that, in the coming years, the application [...]

What is a Data Lake?

Since the digital transformation, many data have begun to be gathered in the midst of industrial processes and operations. Technologies such as machine learning, big data, and cloud computing are some of the tools developed in this period in order to handle this data so that it can become useful.   Within this scenario, a new concept of storage starts to be discussed. In this text we will address what are the main characteristics, definitions, and benefits of a Data Lake, and what opportunities this concept creates for data scientists who want to extract maximum value from data.   What [...]

The relation between Artificial Intelligence and Digital Transformation

Artificial intelligence is one of the most important modern technologies and it is through its development that many tasks gain new possibilities for automation and execution.   The concept was first proposed by John McCarthy at an expert meeting at Dartmouth College in 1956. Until then, artificial intelligence was used only for laboratory research and the use of giant machines that performed basic activities based on arithmetic calculations for performing simple operations.     Only a few decades later, the application of artificial intelligence began to be executed in the industrial market, mainly due to the improvement in the [...]

Digital Twin and Artificial Intelligence: that’s the secret for better performance

Inspection and maintenance tasks in industrial plants are extremely important for the proper functioning, guarantee of safety, and continuity of an operation. Thanks to Digital Transformation these activities can be enhanced through Digital Twin and Artificial Intelligence. The discipline responsible for managing these activities is known as asset integrity management. Among the main duties of this discipline are: Identification of failure mechanisms Identification of loss of performance in assets Management of inspection and maintenance teams We can understand the essentiality of this discipline for the proper functioning of an industrial plant. However, managing assets can be an extremely exhausting and [...]
