    Are you interested in best practices for predicting and optimizing rotating machinery dynamics?

    Siemens PLM cordially invites you for an informative and educational day covering the process and best practices for predicting and optimizing rotating machinery dynamics.

    This seminar can help you answer questions like:

    • What is an order? How does it get measured?
    • What is torsional vibration? What type of problems does it cause and how can they be


    • How can viewing data in the angle domain, rather than time domain, give me insight

      into problems?

    • What kinds of unique problems do gears and bearings have? How can they be analyzed

      and solved?

    • What unique frequency signatures are generated by electric motors?
    • What issues do hydraulic pumps show?

      In this seminar, both simulation and test methods will be presented in an interactive, side-by- side format.

  • Watson-in-the-Watt: Artificial Intelligence Symposium 2019

    April 22, 2019

    For more information, visit the event page here.

    Most know of IBM Watson as the AI supercomputer that destroyed its human competitors on Jeopardy! back in 2011. Since that time, Watson technology has grown into a multifaceted AI platform with diverse industry applications, from healthcare to agriculture. You are invited to join us for our second annual IBM Watson meeting, hosted at the Watt Family Innovation Center on Monday, April 22. During this symposium, plenary talks, posters and demonstrations will cover a variety of AI-powered topics, including:

    AI for education;
    Brand color management;
    Context aware navigational assistants; and
    Getting started with Watson services.
    This year, the event opens with the topic of “AI for Education and the Digital Divide”, which intends to stimulate a broad conversation with attendees about AI’s future role in higher education. The afternoon will be filled with impressive student poster presentations and prototype demonstrations.

    Whether you are a seasoned AI professional or simply curious about the technology, we welcome you to join us for a day of stimulating discussions!

    An agenda is available for this workshop.

    If you are interested in working with the Watson-in-the-Watt on your project, please fill out this brief survey and we will follow up with you via email.

    Monday, April 22, 2019 | 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. One hour will be allotted for lunch.
