Smart data and the energy transition
What is smart data and how can we use it to help us through the energy transition? In this episode, we talk to Dr Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist and Executive Advisor at Booz Allen Hamilton, about the advancements in technology that are aiding the transformation of the energy sector.
In this latest episode, Kirk shares his views on how data is helping to drive energy efficiency and reduce climate change. Kirk explains why it is important to collect data from many different sensors to help us to fully understand the position on climate change; the importance of integration of data sources to break down the silos of information available; and how taking a prescriptive modelling approach will help us to achieve a better outcome for the planet. Finally, we talk to Kirk about AI, in particular Assisted Intelligence, and how humans and machines are working together to filter and understand the significant amount of data available.
