“Harnessing AI for Product Lifecycle Intelligence”

with Neil D’Souza, CEO and founder of Makersite, Stuttgart, Germany

Date/Time: May 21, 2024

Discover the transformative power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in revolutionizing product lifecycle management and sustainable manufacturing practices. This webinar, featuring Neil D’Souza, CEO of Makersite, will explore AI’s role in fostering smarter decision-making, optimizing resources, reducing waste, and amplifying the value proposition of products through eco-design. With sustainability reporting demands set to increase exponentially, learn how integrating AI can offer businesses critical competitive advantages and support the urgent need for comprehensive environmental data governance. Join us to gain actionable insights into achieving efficiency and innovation in a rapidly evolving market.

Key Takeaways:

1. AI-Driven Decision-Making: The integration of Artificial Intelligence in product lifecycle management significantly enhances decision-making processes, allowing companies to make smarter, data-backed decisions. This technological shift is pivotal for navigating the complexities of modern markets efficiently.

2. Resource Optimization and Waste Reduction: By leveraging AI, businesses can achieve substantial improvements in resource utilization and waste management. This not only contributes to more sustainable manufacturing practices but also aligns with global environmental goals.

3. Competitive Advantage through Sustainability: The webinar underscores the importance of adopting AI technologies for sustainability reporting and environmental data governance. This approach not only meets the increasing demands for transparency but also positions businesses at the forefront of innovation and sustainability, offering a clear competitive edge in the marketplace.

SusTech Talk June 2024 – Multi-Stakeholder Consortia: Agile Responses to Global Challenges
June 18th
6:00 PM (1 hour)

IEEE SusTech is hosting talks on Sustainability topics.

“Multi-Stakeholder Consortia: Agile Responses to Global Challenges”

with Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld, Heller School for Social Policy and Management, Brandeis University

Date/Time: June 18, 2024, 6:00 – 7:00 pm PDT


In the face of global challenges such as the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), social institutions face a dilemma. Institutions are the stable foundations of society, operating with incremental rates of change to maintain stability. Yet the global challenges all involve rapid rates of change. This talk will focus on climate change, artificial intelligence, and fragile supply chains, each of which are beyond the scope of individual organizations, requiring many forms of institutional action. Multi-stakeholder consortia will be presented as institutional arrangements that can simultaneously ensure stability and agility.


Artificial Intelligence of Things for Smart Cities
June 24th
5:00 PM (1 hour)


Abstract: Cities worldwide are transitioning quickly towards a low-carbon environment, high quality of living, and resource-efficient economy. Artificial Intelligence of Things (IoT) is a combination of Artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) to enable autonomous decision-making, data analytics, and system optimization. This talk will share our experiences on AIoT for smart cities. The first work is called Green IoT, which provides artificial intelligence and open data for sustainable city development. In this work, we developed an intelligent IoT system for air pollution monitoring in Uppsala, Sweden. The second work, called Smart Water Auditing, uses IoT and machine learning to provide insights into how much water is consumed in different domestic use categories. It aims to reduce water consumption and raise awareness of people's water consumption habits. This talk will present our AIoT system designs, machine learning algorithms, implementation, and experimental results in Hong Kong and Sweden.
