Государство Group помогла «Россети Центр» сократить коммерческие потери электроэнергии с помощью ИИ

Раньше выездные бригады «Россети Центр» ежегодно проводили более 646 тысяч проверок в поисках фактов неучтенного потребления электроэнергии. В месяц специалисты компании могли
проанализировать не более 30% точек учета. При этом в 99% случаев проверки не выявляли нарушений, так как человеку сложно учитывать все факторы, влияющие на потери электроэнергии.

Специалисты PREDICT создали программный ИИ-комплекс, в основе которого лежат технологии искусственного интеллекта и машинного обучения. Система анализирует собственные данные, состояние
точки учета, динамику потребления электроэнергии, и информацию из открытых источников — сведения о юридическом лице и другие. Это позволяет программному комплексу выявлять нетривиальные связи между
целевыми и реальными показателями на каждой точке учета, вычислять вероятность и прогнозировать объем неучтенного энергопотребления.

Если вероятность коммерческой потери в конкретной точке учета определяется как высокая, система автоматизировано формирует задание для выездной бригады. После выполнения задания программа
проводит анализ выполненных проверок и использует полученные данные для последующего дообучения ML-моделей.

«М.Видео-Эльдорадо» внедряет систему видеоаналитики в магазинах

ГК «М.Видео-Эльдорадо» тестирует в магазинах управление персоналом и клиентским сервисом на основе данные видеоаналитики. Пилотный проект проводится в рамках трёх рабочих аналитических
сценариев: «одинокий покупатель», «очередь у касс» и «тепловая карта магазина».

Данные с IP-камер магазина обрабатываются нейронной сетью на основе YOLO – решения для детекции множественных объектов на изображении. Для обработки видеопотока используются
облачные решения и инфраструктура на основе Raspberry. Интеллектуальное решение в режиме реального времени анализирует поток данных оно может отличить сотрудников от посетителей, а затем
«накладывает» данные о местоположении людей на план магазина.
