IET UNIVERSITY LECTURE SERIES @ UNITEN
Talk 1: What is the future for an engineer in the energy industry?
Technology is an accelerating force that is transforming everything in its wake. How can you survive and thrive in its face? What must you do? Are you up to the challenge, especially in the energy industry?
Talk 2: Integration of Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality for IR4.0 Applications
IR4.0 brings with it all sorts of possibilities. These exciting prospects are abound, limited only by human’s imagination. But these possibilities only become realities if they are brought together into applications that make sense, especially from business or social perspectives. Two of the enablers of IR4.0 are Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented Reality (AR). In order to understand these new paradigms, we need to understand what these enablers are. We then talk about what are the current and possible scenarios in the integrated use of AI and AR, and the value that such systems bring. We also look at the human aspect of devising, developing and running these systems: the kind of human and social capital we need in order to deliver the value.
Talk 3: Technologies empowering Digital Trust (Blockchain & DLT)
