Which of the panelists spoke about providing their data to a University’s Analytics program? How do you deal with privacy concerns with that situation?

We are careful about the data and information that we provide them access to and we also signed a NDA with the students before our project began. The University has been working on this program for a couple of years and understands if it is to be successful protective measures need to be taken. The students are Master’s level students and many of them are working professionals that understand the sensitivities necessary.

Use of Drones for asset inspections is a great idea. But if we want to use AI or ML for analysis then drones images needs to be very specific quality. Which can be costly. Do you have any comments on pay back or how cost effective this will be for utility.

Hi, thank you for your question. I’d be more than happy to provide additional insights from our Utility customers globally (the Middle East and South America), as well as payback experiences from oil/gas, communications, and manufacturing. Feel free to contact me at kevin.mckeand@optelos.com and we’ll share more details.
