Master Class: Artificial Intelligence and The Power of Simulation


Simulation has become a fundamental practice for development in Robotics Industry and is reaching new heights with trends such as Digital Twins. But how can the power of simulation be combined with the impressive models offered by Artificial Intelligence?

In this session, we will present four growing trends in Robotics Industry that combine AI and Simulation. We will go beyond the mere use of AI models in Simulink, showing an unknown potential in many cases.


  • AI for Reduced Order Models (ROM) - a way to manage the computational complexity of high-fidelity models.
  • AI-based Virtual Sensors - emulating a physical sensor where measurement is not possible.
  • System Control based on Reinforcement Learning - let the model learn by itself in a simulated environment. AI integration in Simulink - simple and effective.
  • Improving AI models using Digital Twins - diversify your dataset using simulation.
