Both physics-based models and machine learning can be used to make predictions -- so which approach should be used for what purpose, and when is a combination of the two the best solution?
Join us to learn from Gunnar Staff, Senior Principal Data Scientist at Cognite, how physics is being fused with ML to bring out the best of both worlds, unlocking both financial and sustainable value from advanced analytics in processing industries.
In this webinar, we will present two use cases for what’s known as physics-guided ML or hybrid AI:
- An oil-in-water prediction, root cause analysis, and preventive action system
- Transferring lessons from oil and gas to industries that produce goods such as cement, paint, and fish oil
In addition to these use cases, you will learn how hybrid AI can be applied to address your organization’s production optimization challenges. Key takeaways include:
- Combining physics-based modeling and machine learning
- Fit for industrial systems analysts across a range of scenarios
- Subject-matter and data science requirements
- Why semi-interpretable prediction logic is preferred
- Cost efficiency compared to pure physics-modeling in production and at scale across fleets of assets
- Machine learning training with synthetic data
