Vidya’s articles for the conference

Otavio Correa (Vidya’s CEO) and Jorge Mariano (Vidya’s CMO) wrote the first article. It’s named “Using Digital Twin and Artificial Intelligence to predict atmospheric corrosion”. This article focuses on offering a solution to manage the integrity of industrial assets, focusing on the atmospheric corrosion process and its protection in industrial plants such as oil and gas and petrochemicals, and the role of technology in managing information such as budget, productivity, centralization of information, and contextualization of data for the evaluation of decision-makers.

The second article is “A Machine Vision case study of the U-Net Networks for superficial corrosion and dirt image segmentation on industrial coated steel structures”. Written by Wesley Kaizer (Artificial Intelligence Expert) and Otavio Correa (Vidya’s CEO). This one focuses on solving the problem of corrosion using machine learning methods to provide insights about the application of deep neural networks in this particular domain.

The two articles will be presented during the 4 days of the conference. The article’s presentation will be displayed online for attendees interested in checking on the presentation via the virtual platform of Rio Oil and Gas.
