A new era is here – the time for artificial intelligence to be the new revolution in the industry has come. Its benefits are everywhere but also its challenges. The presence of AI has proven to be really beneficial – it improves performance of our smartphones, recommends us products while shopping online, help us detect diseases faster, etc. This is the nice part that everyone sees, but to come to this point, there are a lot of steps to make during development. In this talk, we will talk about the development path we followed in one of our latest projects in the energy sector, with a special look at how we were able automate optimizing and testing our AI solution.
In this talk, Andrés (alongside his colleague Tomislav Luetić) will be discussing how AI and machine learning algorithms can help forecast electricity demand. They will share experiences from both the data science and data engineering perspectives.
