Topic Abstract


First of all AIOps stands for Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations. It’s the next generation of IT operations analytics, or ITOA. And its value is in helping organizations address complex IT challenges such as:

  • The increasing complexity and dynamic nature of IT architectures
  • Digital business transformation
  • Siloed IT operations
  • Exponential growth of uncorrelated data

All of the above render traditional, domain-centric monitoring and IT operations management inadequate. Such systems can’t correlate the onslaught of data various IT domains create. What’s more, they’re unable to provide the insights IT operations teams need to proactively manage their environments. And that just doesn’t work.

IT organizations need a new class of technology to modernize their processes by applying machine learning to automatically detect patterns and reduce noise. But powerful ML/AI algorithms cannot do their magic if the IT inventory data is inaccurate or if we don’t have an application-centric view of the entire stack correlated with the operational events that could impact its performance.

Therefore, IT organizations need a new technology that first automates the discovery process across hybrid IT, creates an accurate inventory and automatically updates the CMDB, that is then able to correlate millions of data points across all IT domains. Finally, this technology should have the smarts to apply machine learning to detect patterns and reduce noise. And it should present that information through an intuitive UI so organizations can easily see what’s happening and gain insights.

Topic Abstract


The manufacturing industry worldwide is going through a revolution known as Industry 4.0 - the fourth major revolution in industry and technology! As we march towards Industry 4.0, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its applications play a pivotal role. AI has been one of the catalysts in our progress towards Industry 4.0. While analysis of structured data (such as numbers, numeric values of parameters such as temperatures) is an established and mature field, a vast majority of data in manufacturing is in the unstructured form - the sounds and noises, the sights and visions, and text data which is omnipresent in the form of various papers and production sheets. If we could utilize this vast unstructured data and derive value out of this through innovative applications of AI, we could transform the way the manufacturing industry works. In this talk, we will talk about such innovative applications of AI for unstructured data. The talk will discuss sound analytics which is one of the latest developments in this field, real-time video analytics, and text analytics, all targeted for manufacturing industry. This talk will also touch upon the topic of edge computing, and compressing the complex AI models into small devices which can do real-time AI at the shop floor without any external connectivity requirements.

Topic Abstract


As progressive enterprises move from Data driven workflows to AI driven workflows, some key questions that arises are:

  • Will AI decisions be explainable or is it even desired?
  • Can AI include contextual information like company strategy, environment/ market landscape in making decisions?
  • How can we use AI to improve decision making than become slaves to AI ?

The focus of this session will be to introduce a decision making model based on AI that complements human judgement and brings in contextual data via AI to aid these decisions. This will be done through a quick historical context, an overview of some relevant business scenarios, followed by a demo of a few AI based solutions.
