Everguard.ai CEO Sandeep Pandya will be the featured speaker on the next SMU Community Chat webinar on Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 11 a.m. ET.
The live webinar is free for anyone to attend. A recording will be available for SMU members. You can register for the webinar here.
Sandeep will explain some of the most innovative safety technology advancements—including not only AI but also sensor fusion and edge computing. He’ll also talk about smart wearables and how using them more broadly could dramatically improve safety. The big idea: To use these technologies to create proactive, as opposed to traditionally reactive, safety measures. The goal: To create a far more accident-free steel industry.
Keep in mind that AI can be used not only when it comes to what we traditionally think of as safety issues—slips and falls, for example. It can also be deployed to prevent heat-related illnesses like heatstroke. Recall that July saw 28 states, including many with steel operations, under heat advisories and excessive heat warnings.
Everguard.ai was formed in 2020. Although the company is still young, it has already received backing from the Boston Consulting Group and South Korean steelmaker SeAH.
As always, we’ll keep it to about 45 minutes. You can drop in, learn something—and then get on with your day.
