OPITO News - Artificial intelligence can drive efficiency and safety performance


The energy industry can free up more time for high value activities and improve safety performance by adopting data-driven digitisation, according to a world-leading artificial intelligence (AI) expert.

In a keynote speech at this year's OPITO Global Conference on 6th November in Kuala Lumpur, Dr Ayesha Khanna, founder and CEO of Singapore headquartered ADDO AI will describe how AI and machine learning are delivering huge benefits in other sectors.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, OPITO Global is the only international event focusing on energy industry safety and competency. Industry leaders and experts will share their insights on Safety 4.0, exploring how technology is helping to improve safety, health and wellbeing.

Dr Khanna has provided strategic advice to international corporations and governments and last year she was described by Forbes magazine as one of South East Asia's most ground-breaking female entrepreneurs.

Dr Khanna said: “There is a perception that AI and machine learning is expensive to implement and a fear that jobs will go. But the reality is quite different. Using AI to replace repetitive or dangerous tasks can free up time and people for more valuable, safer activities.

“The new tech-enabled roles outlined in recent research mirrors what we are seeing across other sectors. Exciting new jobs are being created in virtual and augmented reality, utilising the Internet of Things and gamification techniques.”

OPITO CEO John McDonald commented: “I'm sure Dr Khanna's vast experience of how other sectors are embedding AI and machine learning to deliver safe and efficient operations will inspire OPITO Global's international delegates, many of whom are focused on digital skills challenges within their own organisations.”

Dr Khanna's clients have included Smart Dubai, the government agency tasked to transform Dubai into a leading smart city, SMRT, Singapore's largest public transport company, SOMPO, Japan's largest insurance firm and Habib Bank, Pakistan's largest bank.

Prior to forming ADDO AI, Dr Khanna spent more than a decade on Wall Street developing large scale trading, risk management and data analytics systems and previously directed the Future Cities Group at the London School of Economics.

Dr Khanna will be joined by British astronaut Major Tim Peake, who will sharing how he prepared for a six-month mission on the International Space Station and Malaysian entrepreneur, Azran Osman-Rani, who'll describe how digital therapeutics are helping people embrace healthier lifestyles.

More than 400 delegates from Asia Pacific, Europe, the Americas, and the Middle East are expected to attend this free event at the Four Seasons Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 6 November 2019, encouraging learning and knowledge sharing to support industry safety.

OPITO Global is sponsored for a second year by global safety training, training management and competence management solutions company RelyOn Nutec.
