MathWorks Keynote: Beyond the ‘I‘ in AI AI, or artificial intelligence, is transforming the products we build and the way we do business but creating an “AI-driven” system requires more than developing intelligent algorithms. It also requires insights from domain experts, implementation details and integration into the final engineered system. Join us to learn how engineers and scientists are using MATLAB® and Simulink® to successfully design and incorporate AI into the next generation of smart, connected systems.
10:15
User presentation from Wärtsilä: Model-Based Design in Industrial Automation Wärtsilä has made a step towards autonomous power plants where human interactions are coming more and more insignificant. With this conscious choice Model-Based Design is playing significant role by providing methods to build a system which is tested at the earliest stage and prevents design errors and ensures flawless operations from day one. Standardisation and modularisation of plants is a key success factor and a development environment based on MATLAB® and Simulink® supports this work approach.

Master Class: Adopting Model-Based Design for FPGA, ASIC, and SoC Development The competing demands of functional innovation, aggressive schedules, and product quality have significantly strained traditional FPGA, ASIC, and SoC development workflows. This Master Class will guide you though Model-Based Design with MATLAB® and Simulink® for algorithm- and system-level design and verification including refining, and also prototyping and verification on hardware.
15:00
Deploying AI/ML for Near Real-Time Manufacturing Decisions With the increasing popularity of AI, new frontiers are emerging in predictive maintenance and manufacturing decision science associated with challenges such as modleing of assets, training predictive models and deploying these at scale. This talk will focus on building a system to address these challenges using MATLAB, Simulink®, Apache Kafka, and Microsoft® Azure®.
15:30

Simplifying Requirements Based Verification with Model-Based Design With Model-Based Design, informal textual requirements can be modeled and simulated to verify behavior earlier, and then, be automatically generated into code for an embedded target. This talk shows you how you can translate informal text requirements into unambiguous assessments with clear, defined semantics that can identify inconsistencies.
B
Master Class: Predictive Maintenance with MATLAB Predictive maintenance reduces operational costs for organizations running and manufacturing expensive equipment by predicting failures from sensor data. In this talk, you will learn how MATLAB® combines machine learning with traditional model-based and signal processing techniques to create hybrid approaches for predicting and isolating failures as well as integrating validated predicitve mainatenance algorithms with your embedded devices and enterprise IT/OT platforms.
16:00
Power Electronics HIL with Simscape to HDL Conversion Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing is an accepted real-time simulation practice for validating controllers for power electronics systems. However, controller validation for power electronics can require running simulations at challenging sampling frequencies.
