Dr. Xiao Yang Scheduled to Speak at Venture Cafe Saint Louis

On September 5th, my crew member, Xiao Yang, presents a talk at Venture Cafe's Thursday Gathering about what happens when AI and IoT technologies come together to make life easier.

Object Computing's machine learning (ML) engineering team recently developed a proof-of-concept project that demonstrates that a computer can be taught to read analog gauges and translate the readings into digital data!

With this kind of technology in its pocket, a company that requires regular gauge readings – like those in manufacturing, energy, utilities, and other industrial domains – no longer has to send workers to review gauges in person.

I'm sure you can imagine the cost savings, and not just in personnel and travel expenses! Having access to a solution like this would allow you to:

  • Discover faults, outages, and other potential issues the moment they arise
  • Optimize maintenance schedules
  • Increase the lifespan of older hardware
  • More accurately calculate the ROI of updated equipment
  • And more!

Join Xiao at Venture Cafe St. Louis to learn more about this deep learning initiative and what it means for the future of your industry. You never know; this could turn out to be the exact solution you've been looking for without even realizing it!
