April 8, 2019 | Sunnyvale, CA and Pittsburgh

Petuum today announced the Petuum Industrial AI Autopilot product is being unveiled at PI World San Francisco 2019. The Petuum Industrial AI product enables complex manufacturing operations to achieve higher optima with artificial intelligence (AI)-based modules that continuously learn, adapt and drive consistently better business results.

Petuum also announced a technology partnership with OSIsoft, a leader in data infrastructure for critical operations. Petuum’s Industrial AI Autopilot product is integrated with OSIsoft’s products at the edge, on premises and in the cloud for bi-directional connectivity with operational data from the PI System to “auto-steer” a full set of manufacturing assets, processes and operational excellence initiatives.

“Manufacturers understand the value and impact operational data can have. The challenge is creating an architecture that allows them to get the most out of it,” said Chris Nelson, VP Software Development at OSIsoft. ” The combination of Petuum Industrial AI and OSIsoft Cloud Services is well-positioned to generate the intelligence and automation that drive new levels of productivity, efficiency and sustainability for the industrial value chain.”

Petuum Industrial AI Autopilot is integrated with OSIsoft’s PI Web API, PI connectors and interfaces, PI Vision, PI Asset Framework and Asset Analytics and through OSIsoft Cloud connect to enable real-time inference and learning on streaming data. Petuum will also be demonstrating an integration with OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) at PI World 2019.

“Operationalizing AI solutions requires a modern data infrastructure that delivers intelligence to the industrial community where it is needed. “said Qirong Ho, Chief Technology Officer at Petuum.” We have demonstrated the tremendous value that artificial intelligence can bring to manufacturing enterprises, with deep collaboration from OSIsoft, that allowed us to standardize global deployments and accelerate delivery. Our integration with OSIsoft Cloud Services will help customers gain the advantages of AI even faster.”

The Petuum Industrial AI Autopilot leverages diverse sets of operational data from multiple sources for precise predictions, optimal prescriptions and offers a supervised “autosteer” mode for entire end-to-end processes to best align with operating objectives. Delivered as a service, the Petuum Industrial AI Autopilot brings new levels of automation and acumen to difficult manufacturing problems that traditional techniques have failed to solve adequately.

OSIsoft’s decision-ready data infrastructure transforms data generated by sensors, devices and industrial processes into rich, real-time insights to help organizations save money, increase productivity, and create connected products and services. The integrations with Petuum now ensure that this data is usable by advanced artificial intelligence to generate transformative levels of predictability, efficiency and sustainability.
