Digital Transformation in Downstream

February 15, 2023 | 10:00-11:00 GST

Digital transformation is inevitable for the downstream industry to survive and thrive. It helps to increase plant efficiencies, increase productivity and reduce operating cost by leveraging a plethora of IR4.0 technologies such as AI, Augmented Intelligence, AIoT, ML, VR/MR, Big Data Analytics, and Cloud computing. These technologies could become the corner stone in achieving Autonomous Plants (self-learning, self-optimizing and self-sustaining).
