eSmart – How AI & Virtual Inspections Changed Operations at Xcel Energy
Today’s leading utilities are beginning to embrace AI and virtual technology—such as unmanned drones and algorithms—to identify and inspect field assets more quickly than ever before.
Join industry experts for a live webinar on the ins and outs of a cutting-edge virtual inspection program contracted by Xcel Energy. Designed for utility experts, this informative webinar will:
- – Explain the technology and processes used in the program, which captured and analyzed nearly 3.5 million digital images (Printed, they would have made a stack as high as the Empire State Building)!
- – Outline the benefits and requirements of using a virtual inspection program—and what AI is and isn’t capable of doing
- – Review the goals and results of the program and how virtual inspections compare to traditional foot patrols. Share lessons learned from making virtual inspections part of the ongoing work of an operations and maintenance team
