Abstract: Energy Company of the Future
The 'Digital Age’ has arrived for all. Advances in artificial intelligence and robotics are significantly changing work leading to the elimination of some jobs and the creation of new ones. Digital not only opens up entirely new opportunities for energy companies, but also transforms how they execute and compete. To succeed in this new world, the energy industry will need to be both agile and adaptable, connected and collaborative. This discussion will focus on how to leverage digital technologies and explore the risks and potential value we face as we look to implement these new technologies.
