Redwood City‚ Calif. – March 1‚ 2017 – CEO Thomas M. Siebel delivered a keynote address about industrial-scale digital transformation at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) annual Energy Innovation Summit held this week in Washington‚ D.C. Now in its eighth year‚ the summit draws more than 2‚200 participants and the top minds in energy to discuss cutting-edge energy issues and cultivate relationships with leaders from industry‚ government‚ and academia to advance technologies toward deployment.

Siebel provided his perspective on applying the sciences of big data‚ elastic cloud computing‚ artificial intelligence‚ and machine learning to enable a new generation of predictive analytics software solutions that enhance the performance‚ reliability‚ resilience‚ and safety of the power grid.

“The American energy grid‚ arguably the most important infrastructure to society‚ is increasingly vulnerable to cyber-attack and exists in a tenuous state. Given that virtually all other sectors rely on the electric grid to deliver their services‚ the resiliency of the power grid is crucial to the nation’s security. Events such as the ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit are critical to driving active collaboration among researchers‚ the private sector‚ and government agencies to develop and deploy solutions for increasing the resilience of energy networks and other critical infrastructure.” – Thomas Siebel‚ Founder and CEO‚ C3
