Bringing Autonomous Decision Making and Human-Machine Interaction to Core Processes: A Case Study involving AGVs and Mixed Traffic
Wednesday 22nd May 09:55 - 10:20
Quantillion builds technology for primary metals industry that let every worker, every machine and every plant use data to continuously and autonomously improve safety, quality and output.
In our talk at the Future Aluminium Forum, we will take you along on a journey and share one of our experiences with bringing autonomous decision making, Automated Guided Vehicles in core processes at primary aluminium smelters (i.e. potroom, anode storage area and casthouse), and working with mixed traffic (i.e. AGVs moving among humans).
In particular, we will demonstrate how to guarantee successful execution and embedding of the solutions at smelters. We will zoom in on finding and defining business cases and starting to test technology small before scaling up.
Speaker: Kevin Sipin, Director - Technology at Quantillion Technologies
Kevin focuses on the development and deployment of autonomous decision technology for primary aluminium smelters.
Before moving towards the metals industry, Kevin worked as Data Scientist Intern at Microsoft. There he developed self-learning algorithms for workflow automation. Kevin studied Econometrics and Actuarial Sciences at the University of Amsterdam and completed his studies with research in modelling exchange rate dynamics and asymmetries.
Kevin will take us along the journey of many smelters working with automation. He will focus on bringing autonomous decision making and human-machine interaction step-by-step to core processes.
