Unlock the Potential of Industrial AI Platforms


By Kathy Webster, Correspondence for MT360

Industrial Artificial Intelligence (AI) has failed to deliver on many of its promises of reduced costs, increased agility, and improved machine reliability. But what happens if you use causality analysis as an experienced manufacturing technology expert does?

Will Sobel, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-Founder of VIMANA, a provider of advanced industrial analytics, will share his causality analysis strategy to unlock the potential of industrial AI in his presentation, Industrial AI Platforms – Beyond Machine Learning and Addressing Causality, at MT360, May 12 – 14, 2020, in Santa Clara, Calif. MT360 is a new event connecting manufacturers to the software developers and investors of Silicon Valley to accelerate the integration of emerging technologies into manufacturing.

Using technology around causality analysis, Sobel will share how to gain the promises of industrial AI. Sobel chose MT360 as a platform to speak to help manufacturers improve processes to maximize business outcomes.

Sobel is also the Chief Architect Sobel is also the Chief Architect for the MTConnect® Standard, the leading international semantic standard for manufacturing equipment managed by AMT - The Association for Manufacturing Technology. He works with numerous government and public-private organizations for standards harmonization and information architecture. Most recently, Sobel was a guest researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) where he developed information models for task-based process choreography automation for industrial robot operating systems at the Southwest Research Institute, a nonprofit, applied engineering R&D organization.

MT360 brings traditional manufacturers, non-traditional tech companies, and venture capitalists into one conference to learn about transformative technologies that will intersect all three worlds.

  • Cognitive Automation – A spectrum of AI or data-related tools that enable automation systems to sense and react to information.

  • Additive Manufacturing – Several related technologies that enable manufacturers to create complex parts and fixtures through 3D printing.

  • Augmented Reality – Technologies that use digital displays to assist with manual tasks.

  • Digital Thread – Electronic connections that allow manufacturing information to follow a product through its entire production process.

In addition to the speakers and panel discussions, MT360 will showcase companies involved in every aspect of these technologies set in unique experiences, such as a virtual factory and a tech theatre. Attendees can visit and interact with software companies, hardware companies, complete AR-platform providers, and smart manufacturing.
