LTH AI and Digitalization Seminar: AI and Digitalization for the Process Industry with Margret Bauer from Department of Automatic Control
Please sign up here by Feb 14
Title: AI and Digitalization for the Process Industry
Abstract: The process industry is not at the forefront of AI and digitalization – yet everyone in the process industry is talking about it. What are the opportunities for the digital transformation?
Modern facilities produce chemicals, paper or minerals largely automatically – with very little interventions from humans. This is why most people have never seen these plants from the inside. With a high level of automation, data is captured continuously throughout a process. At the same time, production companies strive for continuous improvements. This sets the stage for using data analytics and decision-making methods to reduce energy consumption, raw materials, waste and pollution.
This talk is for everyone working with data, but with little or no knowledge of the process industry.
Bio: Margret received her undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in 2001 and her PhD from University College London, UK, in 2005. Her work on data-driven analysis received the German NAMUR award for the best PhD thesis in the process industries. She has gained experience in industrial automation while working at the ABB Corporate Research Centre in Ladenburg, Germany, from 2007 to 2015 where she lead projects in advanced data analytics topics in the chemical, metals and minerals and mining industry. Before joining HAW Hamburg, Germany, in May 2020 she was an Associate Professor at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa, and later an Extraordinary Professor at the University of Pretoria. For the period 2021-23 Margret is the Lise-Meitner-Professor at the Department of Automatic Control at Lund University, Sweden.
