Embedding Intelligence into Technical Systems

Smart Grid

One area where intelligence is being embedded into technical systems is in electric power infrastructure - the Grid.

The demand for intelligence in this context includes several factors
  • efficiency (delivering more with less)
  • reliability and robustness (fault tolerance)
  • affordable growth
  • systemic risk (climate change, national security)
