Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a hot topic these days, back in vogue after two decades in the shadows.  Many experts and industry analysts believe that AI or “machine learning” is the future, but look around, it’s here today.  We are all the beneficiaries of various forms of AI: Siri’s voice recognition, Alexa’s notifications, navigational aids, and face recognition to name just a few.

AI is not limited to just IT or the technology industry. It is used extensively in areas such as medicine, business, education, law, and manufacturing. Granted, the technology is still in the “early adoption phase.”  But, more and more companies are investing resources in machine learning, suggesting a robust growth in AI products and apps to come.

So, where is all this technology benefiting energy companies?  Can these methods “see patterns” in smart grid data that can be used to benefit both the utility and customer?  When is that possible and when is it not?  Under what circumstances can we have confidence in the results and when might uncertainty be too great?  AMI clearly provides more granularity than monthly bills, but what is the best data source for personalized communications to consumers, and how can AI bring value to the messaging?
