The Promise of AI Versus the Reality of AI Today

Virtual Webinar
Thursday, September 29, 2022 to Thursday, September 29, 2022

Sponsored By: Bently Nevada, a Baker Hughes business

11AM - 12PM (ET)

Widespread digital transformations are revolutionizing industrial manufacturing and processing environments, including the pulp and paper industry. Leading the charge are artificial intelligence (AI) powered applications, which are emerging across industry types and production processes. The intended result? Intelligent and autonomous operations that reduce costs while boosting safety and asset reliability.

A foremost AI-powered application area is integrated asset performance management (APM), including proactive condition monitoring approaches. Estimates indicate the return on investment (ROI) is significant, with as much as 50% savings in maintenance costs. For manufacturers and operators, this is a game-changer, as many are challenged with the directive to improve the bottom line on under-optimized operations.
