Intelligent Processes: Leveraging the Data Revolution for Decision and Control
- Conference: AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety
- Year: 2019
- Proceeding: 2019 Spring Meeting and 15th Global Congress on Process Safety
- Group: Industry 4.0 Topical Conference
- Time: Monday, April 1, 2019 - 2:15pm-3:00pm
We will start with an introduction to major recent breakthroughs in artificial intelligence and describe how they can be used to solve problems in process modeling, fault detection and diagnosis and control. In particular, we will take the audience through a journey of process data analytics that includes traditional multivariate statistical approaches as well as more modern tools such as variational auto encoders and deep neural networks. This will be followed by a quick tour of reinforcement learning and its potential to change the decision and control paradigm as we know it today. The talk will be interspersed with several relevant industrial and simulated examples.
