The world is changing with artificial intelligence

Shell has been an early adopter of artificial intelligence (AI), as it attempts to speed up its digital transformation. From machine learning to computer vision, deep learning to virtual assistants and autonomous vehicles to robotics, Shell has been focused on a range of technologies that have supported advances in AI.

Shell recently announced its plans to deploy AI applications at scale – read the full article in the Wall Street Journal.

retail is a key engine of the shake

00:04

group we have 30 million customers every

00:08

day shows retail go for safety is linked

00:13

to making sure that our customers and

00:15

our staff are safe at all times our

00:18

retail sites are exposed to safety risks

00:21

ranging from vehicle hitting someone

00:24

theft smoking also things like wrong

00:28

refueling behaviors being able to detect

00:31

those in near time and potentially

00:33

intervene could be very very beneficial

00:35

for us it's very labor-intensive to

00:40

analyze the hours of CCTV footage that

00:42

we capture on our retail sites every day

00:44

with computer vision we've developed a

00:46

collection of machine learning models

00:48

that can identify events of interest at

00:51

the edge in near time we can pass those

00:53

into the cloud for tight processing the

00:56

azure cloud is powering this

00:57

transformation we're now able to take a

01:00

lot of the platform as a service

01:02

offerings that as your gives us things

01:04

like IOT hub and as your data bricks

01:06

combine them with open-source technology

01:09

like tensorflow and Kafka and bring that

01:11

together into a solution quickly what

01:15

deep learning gives us is the ability to

01:16

find events that might be interesting

01:18

but it also allows us to use labelled

01:20

footage to train our algorithms and

01:23

continuously improve if we can leverage

01:26

this technology at scale that means

01:28

making things more effective reducing

01:30

cost and improving safety it's a huge

01:33

opportunity

Shell AI Residency

In line with its ambition to grow and strengthen our talent pools, Shell has recently launched its AI Residency Programme, a two-year immersive opportunity designed for students to work on projects across Shell’s business. 

Sponsored by the Shell Digital Centre of Expertise, the programme offers residents the opportunity to develop deep, technical expertise across the spectrum of AI, learning more about the energy industry and working in agile teams to develop new solutions that can optimise current processes, enable workforce and unlock new business models.
