EP014b: Powerful Schematics At Your Fingertips - An Interview With EPLAN's Carsten Metelmann
Thursday, Oct 12, 2017

While the advent of the Industrial IoT has brought with it numerous benefits to businesses such as improved operations and profitability, increasing digitalization is also adding layers of complexity on top of many traditional systems. The drawback of this is that the ease of use of such systems are adversely affected. In the second episode of the series, we continue the conversation with Carsten Metelmann, Vice President of International Sales at EPLAN about how their traditional technology has been forced to evolve with recent developments like demographic change, the cloud and IoT. Specifically, we will look in greater detail at how the functionalities and architecture of their technology such as the recently launched SaaS-based solution Cogineer handle complexity while remaining highly integrative and not compromising on ease of use.

Saffron Technology (Intel)
Saffron Technology (Intel)
Saffron Technology, Inc., a technology company headquartered in Cary, North Carolina, develops cognitive computing systems that use incremental learning to understand and unify by entity (person, place or thing) the connections between an entity and other “things” in data, along with the context of their connections and their raw frequency counts. This approach provides a semantic and statistical representation of knowledge. Saffron learns from all sources of data including structured and unstructured data to support knowledge-based decision making. Its patented technology captures the connections between data points at the entity level and stores these connections in an associative memory. Similarity algorithms and predictive analytics are then combined with the associative index to identify patterns in the data. Saffron’s Natural Intelligence platform is utilized by Global 1000 companies across industries including manufacturing, energy, defense and healthcare, to help decision-makers manage risks, identify opportunities and anticipate future outcomes, thus reducing cost and increasing productivity. Competitors include IBM Watson and Grok.
