Technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR) and machine learning (ML) once seemed stranger than fiction, but are now playing a growing role in industrial environments.
Seema Haji's picture
The risk created by the proliferation of industrial IoT (IIoT) is rising, thanks to the continued mismanagement of third-party involvement in sensitive industrial environments.
Seema Haji's picture
Smart IoT devices in industrial settings, such as energy, oil/gas and manufacturing, have shifted the perspective on OT environments from being reactive to proactive and predict failures.
