Doosan Enerbility announced on November 19th that it had held the “DX Forum 2023” under the theme of “The Future of AI-Evolving Industries.” This marked the second time that the DX Forum had been held, after being launched for the first time last year for the purpose of sharing the digital trends of industries and introducing actual case examples.
In attendance at the forum which was held at the Bundang Doosan Tower were close to 200 people, including key figures from the power sector, such as Kyong-il Ohm, Executive Vice President of Engineering Safety Division at Korea Western Power (KOWEPO); Seung-chul Lee, Executive Vice President of Quality and Technology Division at Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power (KHNP); Yongjin Song, Chief Strategy Officer at Doosan Enerbility, and other attendees from various sectors, such as the public energy/ IPP sector, chemical plants and manufacturing sector, utility/ IT sector and local universities.
The forum was divided into several sessions, each of which had a specific theme, such as The Future of Digital UX Shaped by Hyperscale AI, The Present & Future of Industrial AI, and Improvements in Industrial Competitiveness Via AI Evolution in 2024 (Doosan Enerbility case study). Following this were presentations given on case examples showing the various application of the solutions to industries, such as the Hyperscale AI-based turbine diagnostics service and evolution of the digital detector technology for industries.
”At this year’s forum, we introduced Doosan Enerbility’s digital solutions, which have been applied to improve the efficiency and reliability of industrial sites and we also gave a presentation outlining the direction we are pursuing for our future services,” said Yongjin Song, CSO of Doosan Enerbility. “We made special efforts this time to share case studies about the application of Hyperscale AI and Generative AI technologies, both of which are hot topics these days, in the power generation and manufacturing sectors, thereby establishing the event as a practical and useful forum.”
Since 2013, Doosan Enerbility has been operating the Digital Innovation organization, which consists of the Data Analytics Team and Digital Solutions Team, and the company recently supplied an AI optimization solution to a 1000MW power plant in Korea to be connected to the control network, leading to improvements in the plant’s reliability and efficiency. Furthermore, Doosan has been expanding the reach of its digital solutions business by applying its solutions like “PreVision,” a prediction & diagnostics solution, to other sectors like chemical plants.
