Alexander Naidu, Global Head SCADA & Visualization, Suzlon Energy
This panel session will focus on the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies in SCADA & HMI systems. The panel will focus on AI & IIoT technologies within the Energy, Water and Oil & Gas industries. The session will aim to explore the opportunities and challenges of using AI and IIoT technologies in ICS systems and their potential impact on the industrial sector.
The panelists will discuss how IIoT technologies have enabled the collection and transmission of vast amounts of data in real-time, allowing for better monitoring and control of industrial processes. They will highlight that AI can be used to analyze this data and provide valuable insights that can be used to optimize industrial processes, predict equipment failures, and improve efficiency.
