    Ep 41 Applied AI in Manufacturing - [ Roey Mechrez, Head of AI, and EMEA MD @Tulip]

    Ep 41 Applied AI in Manufacturing - [ Roey Mechrez, Head of AI, and EMEA MD @Tulip]

    By now, we're all aware of the profound impact Generative AI promises for manufacturing. Beyond just assisting engineers in application development, it equips managers with cutting-edge analytics and delivers invaluable error resolution insights to technicians, etc. - all through intuitive interactions.
    That's why I'm excited about Tulip Interfaces' new "Frontline Copilot" which uses LLMs for natural language interaction between operators and manufacturing systems.
    To truly comprehend its significance and the broader implications of Applied AI in manufacturing, I spoke with Roey Mechrez, PhD in my latest podcast episode.
    Roey is the Head of AI and EMEA MD at Tulip Interfaces where he is overseeing Tulip's Machine Learning and Computer Vision strategy.
    Here's the outline of our conversation:
    Outline✅ Introduction to the Tulip Ecosystem✅ Composable, App-based solutions vs. Monolithic MES✅ Tulip for Process Engineer, Operator, Manager End Users✅ Technology stack for Modern Manufacturing✅ Tulip Ecosystem for Applied AI in manufacturing✅ Connecting shop-floor visuals to advanced analytics tools.✅ How Data is Shaping the Next Layer of Manufacturing✅ Tulip connectivity and AI integrations for building shop-floor solutions✅ Introducing Tulip Frontline Copilot: Why Generative AI Matters for Manufacturing✅ Natural Language Operator Interaction with Tulip Copilot, Use Cases✅ Integrating legacy machine data into modern systems with Machine Learning and Edge Connectivity✅ Computer Vision Capabilities and Third-party Integrations in the Tulip Ecosystem.✅ Driving Forces for AI Adoption in Manufacturing✅ The Future of AI in Manufacturing

    Ep 40 Digital Twins for Process Optimisation and Asset Reliability - [ Erik Udstuen, CEO TwinThread]

    Ep 40 Digital Twins for Process Optimisation and Asset Reliability - [ Erik Udstuen, CEO TwinThread]

    For years, manufacturers have had to navigate in relative blindness, implementing improvements on an as-needed, reactive basis.
    This approach, although functional, has been markedly inefficient and reactive, particularly in terms of process optimisation and asset reliability, two vital aspects of industrial operations that can profoundly impact efficiency and profitability.
    Digital Twins represent a transformative shift from this reactive approach to a proactive, predictive one. They facilitate a deeper understanding of how systems behave, providing industrial operators with actionable insights that were previously unavailable.
    To learn more about the application of digital twins in manufacturing, I had a podcast conversation with Erik Udstuen, who is the CEO and co-founder of TwinThread, a company that provides a digital twin platform that combines Industrial Data with Industrial AI in an integrated development environment for engineers and data scientists.
    Here's the outline of our conversation
     
    ✅ Challenges driving Digital Twins adoption in modern manufacturing✅ Key Functions of Digital Twins in Manufacturing✅ Industrial AI Ops✅ Use Cases for Asset and Process Digital Twins✅ Connectivity standards for physical assets to digital twins✅ Best practices for modelling assets and processes for digital twins ✅ Effective infrastructure abstraction techniques for Digital Twin Implementation✅ ISA 88 / 95, and Data Modeling standards for Digital twins✅ Principles-based vs Machine Learning-based modelling for advanced analytics✅ Practical examples of successful digital twin applications in Manufacturing ✅ Selecting a digital twin platform and evaluating capabilities✅ TwinThread Digital Twin Integrated development environment
