Velrada Joins Global Microsoft Artificial Intelligence Program

Perth, WA, Australia - August 10, 2018 - Velrada today announced it has been invited to join Microsoft’s and LiveTiles’ joint Global AI Spark Program as one of three initial launch partners. AI Spark aims to accelerate the deployment of AI (Artificial Intelligence) solutions in enterprise organisations including key industry sectors such as Mining, Energy, Facilities and Asset Management, Health and Financial Services.

Following the Australian launch, Velrada and LiveTiles will take the initiative to global markets, particularly Europe and the US.

Velrada was recently awarded Microsoft’s Global Partner of the Year in Dynamics 365 for Field Services at Microsoft’s Inspire Conference in Las Vegas, where Microsoft One Commercial Partner Vice President, Gavriella Schuster, showcased the LiveTiles Bots Framework with a custom built ‘Ask Gavriella’ bot created by Velrada.

Dan Hookham (Velrada President Global Analytics and AI) said “Velrada is very pleased to be recognized as a global leader in this field by both Microsoft and LiveTiles. We are deploying very exciting solutions today in industries such as manufacturing and resources, including the application of AI machine learning to the development of engineering solutions. Artificial Intelligence is also key component in our asset condition monitoring and predictive maintenance solutions, and in areas such as HSEC where we use data driven approaches to build intelligent models of real world behavior and risk management. We have even developed an AI based ‘bot’ to aid a professional services client with graduate recruitment.”

Saul Sabath (Velrada MD) said “The transformative nature of AI in all industries can’t be underestimated. As these technologies become mainstream and accessible on a service-based consumption model, they can be built into the lowest level of business operations. Microsoft is a clear leader in the data and analytics space and provides us a platform to build and integrate client specific solutions that do everything from optimising transport schedules to analysing and learning patterns of complex engineering solutions and significantly reducing the time, variability and ultimately the cost of construction and asset maintenance.”
