Sessions By Topic

Product Design and Visualization

  • Advanced Product Design in 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA with Physically Based Global Illumination and Scalable Rendering by Heesen Yachts

    • Stephan Ritz, CATIA Design, Product Experience, Portfolio Management Director, Dassault Systèmes

    Dassault Systèmes CATIA and Heesen Yachts jointly present a new high-end approach in yacht design. The integrated usage of CATIA 3D Design and state-of-the-art visualization experiences introduces a paradigm shift in imagining modern 3D yachts. Highly realistic and physically based global illumination rendering is calculated directly on the managed 3D CAD data of the yacht in design.

  • VR Anywhere Streaming Autodesk VRED from AWS Cloud

    • Pietro Fabiani, Sr. Business Development Manager, NVIDIA
    • David Randle, Principal Go-to-Market Specialist for Spatial Computing, AWS
    • Lukas Fäth, Sr. Product Manager - Automotive Visualization, Autodesk

    Join us for a panel featuring experts from Autodesk VRED, AWS, and NVIDIA XR discussing how they were able to deliver high-quality XR experiences from the cloud over connections to tethered and untethered devices.

  • Streaming VR Training from Azure Cloud for Automotive Inspection and Maintenance

    • Veronica Yip, XR Product Marketing, NVIDIA
    • William Cannady, Technical Product Manager, NVIDIA
    • Gauhar Junnarkar, Senior Program Manager, Microsoft
    • Oswin Breidenbach, Information Manager, TÜV SÜD

    Virtual reality is the ultimate medium for training factory workers, enabling immersive experiences that closely mimic the real world without the risk, cost, and physical location requirements of in-situ training. Learn how TÜV SÜD, a world-leading testing, certification, auditing, and advisory services company, is streaming CloudXR from Azure with Innoactive to enable deployment of VR training for automotive inspection and maintenance—anywhere, anytime.


  • Toward Developing High Reynolds Number, Compressible, Reacting Flows in SimNet

    • Tarak Nandi, General Engineer, Battelle
    • Oliver Hennigh, Senior Software Engineer, NVIDIA

    This work focuses on the development and application of SimNet for modeling turbulent, reacting fluid flow in industrial applications. The governing partial differential equations (PDEs) are incorporated into the neural network (NN) training process, where the NNs are optimized by minimizing the PDE residuals. The method doesn’t require training data, and once trained, can generate flow field predictions for multiple operating conditions almost instantaneously.

  • AI-Assisted Physical Modeling in the Cloud-Native Era

    • Linfeng Zhang, Chief Scientific Officer, DP Technology

    We'll present several theories, methods, and engineering efforts that integrate physical models with AI and high-performance computing (HPC) for molecular simulations. Examples include AI-assisted electronic structure models, molecular dynamics models, and enhanced sampling schemes.

Building the AI Factory

  • Case study: Edge AI for Industrial Applications

    • German Suvorov, Head of Industrial AI, Data Monsters

    The Data Monsters team, in cooperation with NVIDIA, implements AI quality inspections on a high-speed packaging line of a major beverage company. It's a computer vision solution based on edge self-supervised AI.

  • Leveraging GPU-accelerated Computing to Scale AI in Steel and Defense Operations

    • Dan Kearns, CTO, Falkonry

    Falkonry provides AI-enabled predictive digital twins for process and asset intelligence. We'll present our experiences in building a scalable and manageable AI platform through the lens of two applications: a large steel maker and the U.S. Navy. Both of these cases involve discovery, diagnostics, and predictive analytics of time series data from industrial sensors, resulting in 430 million inferences per year for the steel case alone.

  • Honeywell Vision Intelligence Platform

    • Manjuprakash Rao, Director of Data Sciences, Advanced Technology, Honeywell

    Video analytics is a critical enabler that cuts across several businesses of Honeywell, including Building Technologies, Safety & Productivity Solutions, Process Solutions, and Aerospace. While each of these businesses poses unique challenges, the foundational building blocks are largely common across several use cases. A unified platform and unified deployment methodologies across edge to cloud would maximize development and operational efficiencies.

  • BMW and Omniverse for Production

    • Ross Krambergar, Digital Solutions for Production Planning, BMW Group

    Take a deeper look at how BMW is utilizing the Omniverse platform to realize their vision for a digital twin factory of the future and enable on-demand agile manufacturing across their global production facilities.

Industry 4.0

  • Physics Simulation and Deep Reinforcement Learning for Contact-Rich Robotic Assembly

    • Kier Storey, Distinguished Engineer, NVIDIA
    • Yashrah Narang, Senior Research Scientist, NVIDIA

    Robotic assembly is one of the most challenging areas of industrial robotics, but physics simulators for the inherently contact-rich interactions have been viewed as computationally intractable. We'll show that the latest advances in NVIDIA PhysX 5 within Omniverse allow highly robust, performant, and parallelizable simulations of contact-rich interactions, demonstrated on robotic assembly tasks.

  • Software 2.0 for Industry 4.0

    • Chitra Singh, Member of Technical Staff, Drishti

    Drishti performs intelligent video analytics at scale with cutting-edge computer vision and deep learning technologies, using only video data. Manufacturing is only too human; dynamic, evolving, and chaotic. Each day on the factory floor is unique, so the initial best-fit models soon become obsolete and require further refinement to keep up the high standards of reliability and quality.

  • Introducing AeroBERT, an Aerospace-Centric Language Model for all NLP Applications at Rolls-Royce

    • Muhannad Alomari, European AI Hub Lead, Rolls-Royce

    We'll introduce AeroBERT, a transformer-based language model trained on millions of aerospace-related documents collected from various publicly available sources such as NASA reports, Wikipedia articles, and arXiv papers. AeroBERT is currently used to tackle all natural language processing (NLP) challenges at Rolls-Royce, providing our AI teams with a great foundation to build on.
