Description of the video:
[Audio: Upbeat scientific music starts playing. Vikram Jadhao begins talking. Video: Vikran Jadhao is shown talking in a workspace. Footage of a factory is shown. Animation reading "Vikram Jadhao, Associate Professor of Intelligent Systems Engineering" plays. Animation of the state of Indiana with 95% inside it is displayed.
My research deals with modeling and simulations of materials and materials processing. This particular energy insights project deals with essentially solving the problem of how do we make Indiana manufacturers understand their energy usage better? Hi, I'm Vikram Jadhao. I'm an associate professor of Intelligent Systems Engineering at Indiana University. Ninety-five percent of Indiana manufacturers do not have a good understanding of where their energy is being used.

Vikram Jadhao is shown talking as animations of graphs appear around him. Footage of Vikram Jadhao working with a colleague is shown.
We would want to change that. And then with the availability of artificial intelligence and machine learning based models, go one step further, which is to understand the data and enable energy forecasting. So when you take that next step, then you become predictive. And that can, in a more significant way, help reduce any energy costs and lower the carbon footprint.
[Audio: Upbeat scientific music ends. Vikram Jadhoa stops speaking. Video: Vikram Jadhao is shown again talking in a workspace. Animation with text reading "Affordable, Accessible, User friendly, Financially rewarding" is shown. Text reading "INDIANA UNIVERSITY RESEARCH research.impact.iu.edu" is shown. Fades to black.]
At the end of the day, what we want is manufacturers are able to understand and analyze their energy usage better. We want to make sure that the analytics applications we produce are affordable, they're accessible, they're user friendly, and they're ultimately financially rewarding. So if we achieve that, I think we will think of this as a success.
