IBM Presents, How Robotics Can Increase Your Plant’s Resiliency and ROI


Have you ever wondered why we still make humans do dangerous, dirty, and boring jobs?

IBM’s Kay Murphy and Nancy Greco will present how IBM, working with Boston Dynamics’ Spot, is helping improve responsiveness, resilience, and reliability for utilities. Examples shown include how Spot captured photos and IR images to inspect hinges, clips, and switches and how it enhanced visuals with thermal image overlay.

Certrec’s Fas Mosleh will explain how Certrec and IBM could utilize this AI-powered quadruped to ensure equipment reliability and fewer trips for technicians.
