Understanding the Role of AI and How to Use Data
Artificial intelligence is becoming increasingly more common in the workplace. To really understand how it works and the benefits that it can bring about, talking to people with first-hand experience is key. To learn more about how AI technology is being used, we turn to our very own experts here at Siemens. In today’s episode, I’m talking to Roberto D'Ippolito, Senior Technical Product Manager of the HEEDS team at Siemens Digital Industries Software based in Belgium. We’ll discuss the range of possibilities within AI, where all that data comes from, and how to create value from it. AI has the potential to offer big advantages over the competition, and machine learning puts all of the information into focus. You’ll also learn where HEEDS fits into the simulation equation, the key benefits of using the technology, and the process of designing automated vehicles so that unpredictable situations are accounted for. We’ll wrap up by touching on a few misconceptions about AI, and where it might lead us in the future.

Addressing Design Flow Gaps and Creating Generic AI Solutions
The gap between what the best AI applications can perform today versus the human brain is vast. Among many other differences, power efficiency and learning speed are two of the most challenging factors the AI & ML industry is dealing with when trying to design brain-like neural networks. Today, in the final episode of the series, Mike and Ellie discuss that gap and the challenges that hardware designers have in their design flow. They also touch on the clashing requirements of coming up with a generic AI application that can perform many tasks versus applications that perform one task really well. Tune in, to find out what the AI industry is doing to narrow the gap between the brain and artificial intelligence. In this episode, you will learn:The gaps between AI applications and the human brain. (00:45)The Holy Grail of AI: one-shot learning. (01:48)The energy consumption of the human brain versus deep neural networks. (02:50)The industry’s struggle of creating specific networks versus generic ones. (03:56)The resources required by one of the most complex neural networks. (06:08)The industry’s challenge of keeping up with the rapid changes in AI architectures.

Understanding Training vs Inferencing and AI in Industry
In the world of AI, a key concept is how to train a neural network to perform a particular task efficiently and accurately, then a hardware solution is created that uses the results from that training - and this is called inferencing.The difference between these two concepts - training and inferencing - often creates confusion among people, and that's why, in today's episode, we are diving deep into explaining these two terms and how exactly they differ. We are also painting a clear picture of the industries that use artificial intelligence and machine learning and what they're working on, so tune in, and find out more! In this episode, you will learn:The difference between training versus inferencing a neural network. (00:46)Examples of frameworks that help with the training process of a neural network. (01:24)The stage AI & ML is at, currently, in terms of safety-critical applications. (04:42)The industries that are currently using AI & ML, and the types of applications they’re focusing on.
