Tech Republic featured our own CEO AJ Abdallat in an interview-style feature that discusses his perspectives on the valuable role AI is playing to help increase operational efficiency in the oil and gas, energy, manufacturing, and healthcare fields. The interview also sheds light on the importance of adopting more advanced AI solutions that are explainable so these critical industries have a clearer path to implementation.
“AI is playing a critical role in operational efficiency across the energy value chain to optimize resource production, democratize domain expert knowledge, and increase value while reducing environmental risk. In the oil and gas sector, AI is enabling companies to optimize their production and improve asset maintenance in many ways, such as pinpointing drilling opportunities, inspecting pipes for problems with self-navigating robots, and predicting equipment wear and tear.”
