    Agora: Improving productivity & sustainability through Internet of Intelligent Things

    Workshop Digitalization Innovation & Technology Energy Transition/Climate & Sustainability
    Although the oil and gas industry has fueled humanity’s technological advancement, pressure is mounting to improve oil and gas’s productivity and environmental sustainability. With the advent of IoT, the industry can digitally access remote onshore and offshore assets. However, transmitting billions of data points daily from physical assets to the cloud doesn’t improve productivity if there are an overwhelming number of alarms and notifications. This Lyceum Lab will provide real examples—deployed at scale—of how Agora can improve operational productivity and sustainability.
