A.I. Digital and the Future of Energy
The world’s need for more and cleaner energy solutions and this transition require significant changes in the way in which energy is provided. Digital technology, including artificial intelligence (A.I.), is a significant enabler for this transformation, from more efficient exploration and production, more reliable manufacturing, more nimble trading, and a more intimate customer experience. New digital solutions are also needed for emerging areas such as power and hydrogen. In the latest installment of UH Energy’s “Critical Issues in Energy” Symposium Series, we’ll take a deeper dive into the role of A.l. within the energy marketplace, specifically with what is being done with A.I. and what is capable of being done. In addition to this pivotal look at one crucial aspect of the energy transition, attendees will be afforded networking opportunities with speakers and distinguished guests, opportunity to win prizes via raffle, and food/refreshments will be provided.
