Neal Analytics solutions are designed to support one, or several, of the following objectives:
Featured customer stories
Redesigning edge architecture for a fleet of onshore oil drilling rigs to improve stability and support analytics capabilities
Autonomous Systems combine simulation and Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) to achieve new levels in equipment performance. Rather than programmed rules, these systems self-learn through trial and error.
Trial-and-error training can’t happen in your production environment. Therefore, the first step in any Autonomous Systems project is to build a reliable simulator that will then be used to train the AI agent using DRL techniques.
Autonomous Systems are ideal for optimizing control systems that require extreme robustness despite being non-linear and multi-variable systems. For instance, Autonomous Systems have been used to optimize oil yield in underground horizontal drilling, controlling the yaw of wind turbines to maximize energy output, decide the optimal material feed rates and throat settings of a gyratory rock crusher, and more.
