The seminar features guest lectures from the industry. The Industrial AI (I-AI) computing applications are at the center of on-going digital transformation. Known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0, this is a multi-trillion-dollar transformation of economy. The I-AI is related to Internet of Things (IoT), where 'things' include man-made systems and business processes: industrial, transportation, operations and support, and supply chains. I-AI applications are mission critical with large cost of error compared to AI apps for the Internet of People. The lecturers from technology (e.g., computing) companies, consultancies, AI vendors, OEMs, and end-users of the I-AI will discuss business and 'big picture' technical issues. Example vertical industries are energy, transportation, oil and gas, data centers, and manufacturing.
