Artificial Intelligence: Advancing Applications in the CPI

By Mary Page Bailey |

A convergence of digital technologies and data science means that industrial AI is gaining ground and producing results for CPI users As data accessibility and analysis capabilities have rapidly advanced in recent years, new digital platforms driven by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are increasingly finding practical applications in industry. “Data are so readily available now. Several years ago, we didn’t have the manipulation capability, the broad platform or cloud capacity to really work with large volumes of data. We’ve got that now, so that has been huge in making AI more practical,” says Paige Morse, industry marketing director for chemicals at Aspen Technology, Inc. (Bedford, Mass.; www.aspentech.com). While AI and ML have been part of the digitalization discussion for many years, these technologies have not seen a great deal of practical application in the chemical process industries (CPI) until relatively recently, says Don Mack, global alliance manager at Siemens Industry, Inc. (Alpharetta, Ga.; www.industry.usa.siemens.com). “In order for AI to work correctly, it needs data. Control systems and historians in chemical plants have a lot of data available, but in many cases, those data have…
