Energy as a Service: A New Paradigm for Energy Solutions Procurement

Many large energy consumers, from higher educational campuses to manufacturers, are tasked with addressing their energy consumption with diminishing budgets in the aftermath of a global pandemic. Many of the advanced technologies needed to reduce energy consumption or increase energy resiliency come with financial barriers that stand in the way of progress. How are some campuses making necessary improvements to their energy infrastructure while also addressing their carbon reduction goals? How did they invest in upgrades when there wasn’t a generous budget line item in place? In this session, we will hear directly from an individual who was able to advance the energy efficiency and carbon reduction goals of his campus, using a unique Energy as a Service (EaaS) offering, with no up-front capital provided by his institution. What were the critical first steps? What were the key lessons learned and notable best practices? And most importantly, what were the results of the EaaS project and how has it impacted their planning for tomorrow.

    Bill Hoffman, OMG; Jason Smith, OMG; Stephen Mellor, IIC; Bill Curtis, CISQ; Dan Isaacs, Digital Twin; Ken Rubin, BPM+ Health
    Object Management Group is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing technology through participation across member companies. Now over thirty years old, OMG began as a standards development organization, publishing standards such as CORBA and UML. With over 225 specifications to its name OMG has continued to develop technologies through membership communities. The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) established seven years ago, and Digital Twin Consortium last year. These programs focus on particular technical and business aspects of various technology enablers, developing technologies and best practices to bring back to member companies.

    Other communities formed by OMG include BPM+ Health, Consortium for Information & Software Quality, and the DDS Foundation. This webinar will explore opportunities for collaboration between OMG programs. For example, controlling multiple sensors from different vendors is ripe for standardization; digital twins are a technology enabler for the industrial internet. Member companies in one program frequently have an interest in others, so we offer limited cross-program participation.

    Bill Hoffman, President of OMG, will be joined by each program’s chief technical officer for a brief overview of each organization followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session. Please join the webinar to learn more about how you can accrue value from OMG and its programs.
  • Digital Twin: Advancing Real-time Data Insights in F1 Racing and Beyond Recorded: Feb 17 2021 32 mins
    John Roese, Global Chief Technology Officer, Dell Technologies and Jonathan Neale, Chief Operating Officer, McLaren Group
    Over the past few years, McLaren and Dell Technologies have been on a journey to test the limits of digital transformation in F1 Racing and bridge the gap between the physical world and its virtual copy, the digital twin. In this quest to leverage the power of data-driven transformation, McLaren has maintained their leadership through a culture of innovation, matched with advanced technology that supports outcome-based decision making.

    Working with real-time data and analytics is critical for their engineers’ productivity as they manage race day inputs of some 300 sensors on an F1 car that collects an average of 100 gigabytes of data per car. This requires complex AI/ML algorithms and simulation, real-time insights, and a software/hardware infrastructure delivered at scale just in time. This partnership and innovation have fuelled McLaren to successfully apply what they learned to other areas of their business the average person may not know them for - such as healthcare and transportation.

    In this session McLaren and Dell Technologies will discuss:
    • The Digital Twin concept and how McLaren leverages it across their business
    • Reduced cost of development, testing and certification using AI/ML and simulation
    • Level of trust in the digital twin
    • Applying the technology to power other verticals such as healthcare and transportation
  • Ready for the EDGE? An Essential Framework for Distributed Edge Computing Recorded: Feb 16 2021 76 mins
    Chuck Byers, Associate CTO, Industrial Internet Consortium
    Edge compute takes advantage of the vast array of data being captured far outside of your data center, and brings the ability to harness, process and reap the rewards of that data faster than ever before. It is about combining the power of physical data proximity with real-time analysis, and turning it into a fantastic user experience for your customers, and cost savings for your clients. It is all about choices – having the right data available in the right place, at the right time.

    It’s also complicated. It needs investment, and really smart people to understand use cases, intended outcomes and metrics. Join us on Feb. 16th for the fundamentals and a framework to help you get started.

    *Due to the large number of registrations for this event, we have extended the length to 75 minutes for additional Q&A if needed.

  • Explainable AI: Cutting Edge Developments for Dependable IoT Systems Recorded: Dec 10 2020 45 mins
    More with Mobile, Thales Group, Asvista and Ubiwhere
    IoT technologies simplify remote access and continuous-time data sourcing from connected devices. Remote management and control capabilities, combined with AI/ML techniques, help organizations to improve industrial efficiency and operational predictability.

    However, the increasing use of black-box techniques for predictive diagnostics about the health of machines in factories or spare capacity in smart city transportation systems introduces a new element in decision making. How trustworthy is a predicted failure if it leads an engineer to shut down a production line? Or, how dependable are predictions about car parking spaces or shared bikes for commuters planning their city centre journeys?

    Explainable AI (XAI) is at the cutting edge of new techniques to increase confidence in predictions and to reason about diagnostics from AI and ML systems. XAI is also a key enabler to enforce digital rights under GDPR-like regulations.

    This panel will consider new developments in the field of AI, their implications for data life-cycle management and, the interplay between IoT and AI/ML disciplines when designing more dependable and trustworthy systems.
