Digital Transformation and Energy Transition in Neoindustrialization on April 4, 2024 in Porto Alegre

Senai-RS promotes the Digital Transformation and Energy Transition in Neoindustrialization seminar

The event is free and will be held this Friday, at FIERGS

The National Industrial Learning Service (Senai-RS), through the Senai Network of Technology and Innovation Institutes, promotes this Friday (5), starting at 9 am, the Digital Transformation and Energy Transition in Neoindustrialization seminar, at FIERGS headquarters. The themes are fundamental pillars of the new industry agenda, focusing on the missions proposed by the CNI for the country’s development.

The program features a lecture by professor from the University of Maryland (USA), Steven Gabriel, who will talk about “Flexibility in energy markets – A multi-agent and multi-level perspective” (with simultaneous translation). The event will also feature a lecture by researcher from the Senai institutes and professor of the Postgraduate Program in Mechanical Engineering at UFRGS, Paulo Smith Schneider, who will speak about “Brazil’s role in the energy transition”, and Wilson Gavião Neto, specialist who connects the artificial intelligence to the demand for innovative solutions, and is part of the Senai Network’s team of researchers. Gavião will give the talk “Building Digital Twins: AI-based perception to connect 3D Reality captures with Engineering data”. The topics will bring a debate about the industrial evolution based on technological solutions in digitalization and sustainable energy.

Registration is free and places are limited:
