The democratization of data and insights is a key trend that will shape the future of technology for the energy industry in 2024. This trend refers to the ability to use artificial intelligence (AI) and digital twins to access, analyse and act on your data in ways that were not possible before.
A digital twin is a virtual replica of a physical object, process, or system that can be used for simulation, optimization, and prediction. AI can enhance the capabilities of digital twins by providing data analysis, machine learning, and natural language processing. Together, AI and digital twins can enable new levels of efficiency, innovation, and operational productivity across various industries.
How can this trend benefit your business? Here are some examples of how you can use AI and digital twin VR to improve your business outcomes in 2024:
- Visual insights: You can leverage your engineering models to display the information in an interactive 3D virtual environment of your assets, such as power plants, utilities, and renewable systems, that you can access from anywhere and on any device. This environment can then be augmented by generative AI to detect fault conditions and find patterns of high productivity, which will improve remote operations, collaboration tools, and better decision-making.
- Optimisation and control: You can use generative AI to create a digital model of your operations, such as power grids, and use it to model and forecast usage, production efficiency, and environmental impact. You can also use it to balance different sources of power, from coal to renewables, most optimally and sustainably.
- Innovation and design: You can use generative AI to create a digital model of your new product or service and use it to explore different design options and settings. You can also use it to simulate the impact of weather, wear, and tear on the performance and lifespan of your product or service.
We have been working hard to develop automated pipelines that can be used to quickly deploy large, complex 3D engineering models and enable users to start interacting with the system. Enhancing the system can be done iteratively, and solutions are driven by users.
These solutions leverage the power of generative AI, existing organisational data sets, the immutable 3D virtual environment, and the tools Unity offers to offer cost-effective value for any industry. The leveraging of low-code solutions to enable customers to add value and simplify the development is essential for these systems to be adopted by organisations in the long term.
