If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
Analytics-driven embedded systems bring analytics to embedded applications, moving many of the functions found in cloud-based, big-data analytics to the source of data. Pilotte: The ability to create analytics that process massive amounts of business and engineering data is enabling designers in many industries to develop intelligent products and services. Using engineering data from thermometers, pressure sensors, and other HVAC sensors, as well as business data from weather forecasts and real-time energy prices, the analytics running in BuildingIQ's cloud service tune the building's HVAC embedded systems. That includes combining an analytics workflow with an embedded design workflow that includes the system simulation, verification, and hardware targeting that we know are essential.
Through the new Centre, GE and IIT Madras will create the Digital Twin of a smelter, a living digital model that will continuously generate new data and insights about the smelter that allows operators to run the smelters more efficiently. "A mere one percent increase in productivity through the application of Industrial Internet solutions can contribute to a 20 percent potential increase in performance for its customers," Azeez Mohammed, president & CEO, GE Power Services, Middle East & Africa. Researchers and students will work closely with the GE Global Research, GE Power Services Engineering and GE Digital teams at GE's John F. Welch Technology Centre in Bengaluru. These solutions will be developed using GE's Predix Industrial Internet operating system and Predix APM (Asset Performance Management), which optimises machines and operations to maximise business performance through three core capabilities - Machine and Equipment Health, Reliability Management, and Maintenance Optimisation.
