Will McGinnis (Predikto) - Predictive Maintenance for Trains and Mobile Heavy Industry

Predictive Maintenance for Trains and Mobile Heavy Industry – with Will McGinnis of Predikto

Episode summary: In the heavy industry sector, the cost of unpredicted repairs or machine failures can be very expensive. For example: A cargo train with an engine failure in will incur costs from its own repairs, from the transit required to reach the broken down engine, and with holding up other trains and cargo in the process.

AI in Food Processing - Use Cases and Applications That Matter

AI in Food Processing – Use Cases and Applications That Matter

Food processing is one of the major manufacturing sectors in the United States. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, 16 percent of the value of shipments from all U.S. manufacturing plants comes from food processing plants. These plants employ around 1.5 million workers in this country.

Biped Robot Timelines - How Long Until Robots Move Like Humans?

Biped Robot Timelines – How Long Until Robots Move Like Humans?

Our cities, streets, homes, and businesses are built for beings that walk on two legs (biped). From stairs to the shape of hallways to the placement of kitchen cabinets, all have been designed for bipeds. The fact that a society of two-legged creatures designed everything around them for bipeds is so obvious most people don’t even think about it, but it becomes a serious issue when talking about the future of robotics.

Predictive Maintenance for Equipment and Machinery – with Predii’s Tilak Kasturi

It would be great if instead of having our car break down - could have them fixed as soon as the underlying problem began. It would be great if instead of having to diagnose a malfunctioning piece of mechanical equipment - would could have the right "fix" presented to us immediately. As it turns out, artificial intelligence may be working its way to accomplish both of those goals in the not-so-distant future.
