C3 AI Sensor Health

Ensure the operational health and optimal deployment of IoT sensor devices with machine learning. C3 AI Sensor Health uses advanced AI/machine learning algorithms to predict sensor failures and identify sensor and network health issues with a high degree of precision.
Learn more
C3.ai Reliability

Monitor health and predict failure of systems, subsystems, assets, and components using advanced machine learning algorithms. C3 AI Reliability enhances process performance, improves operational efficiencies, and boosts production.
C3.ai Production Optimization

Enable oil and gas field engineers and operators to visualize and optimize upstream production operations. C3 AI Production Schedule Optimization generates a virtual metering network to predict network flows, back-allocate production to individual wells, and recommend operational improvements that address production and sensor issues.

Use Cases

use case


Identify corrosion risks, recommend inspection targets, and predict wall-loss events with recommended interventions for assets at risk. AI-enabled predictions seamlessly integrate with ionic modeling and engineering simulations to support oil & gas companies’ efforts to remain compliant with American Petroleum Institute requirements to maximize safety and prevent loss of containment incidents.

use case

Process Optimization

Reduce waste, maximize value-added products, and identify process degradation such as fouling and coking. Provide unit-based and plant-wide continual feedback and performance optimization recommendations based on actual operational parameters. Users can leverage recommendations that prioritize safety, production, runtime, and yield-risk issues over time horizons spanning multiple unit shutdowns, revamps, and configuration changes.

use case

Network and Flow Monitoring

Automate back-allocation and material-balance calculations using sensor data in an end-to-end process application. Identify operational deviations from predicted flows, generate alerts, and reduce bottlenecks. Aggregated results at the well, field, and network level enable users to automate production-loss analysis and investigate operational time-series data and events.

use case

Machine Vision for Safety

Detect and alert safety hazards in near real time using machine vision to analyze video and image-based data sources. Throughout upstream, midstream, and downstream operations, customers can remotely validate well-site operations security, detect asset integrity, and monitor retail safety hazards like consumer smoking behavior. Advanced object detection capabilities can be deployed on edge devices for in-field rapid processing and response time.

Address use cases with the C3 AI Suite

The C3 AI Suite is a purpose-built platform for developing and operating AI applications that address industry and company-specific use cases. It offers a cohesive, low-code/no-code development environment with a complete and comprehensive set of tools and services to design, build, deploy, and operate advanced, enterprise-scale AI applications.
