April 06-08,2018 Axians IAS and A&D meet the Vinci Energies Hackathon„Human Beyond Digital Hack“ @Digitalschmide; Frankfurt, Germany

Our sister company Omexon provided the this year Hackathon´s challenge „Datascience and machine learning for detection of frauds“ from April 6 – 8, 2018. For the first time, all teams from worldwide competed together in the new Digitalschmide in Frankfurt against each other.
The difficulty was to prove that electricity is being squeezed out of a grid and that it is a fraud and not the loss of electricity due to any equipment that consumes electricity unnecessarily. But a unique team of seven young people with an affinity for IT developed a dashboard within 48 hours that clearly identifies and visualizes cases of fraud. With the help of machine learning, the team succeeded in developing an intelligent prototype with which they could also score in front of a high-ranking jury.

April 04-06, 2018 – 25th Asian Federation of Cement Manufacturers (AFCM) Technical Symposium & Exhibition, Indonesia

This year’s conference of the Asian Federation of Cement Manufacturers (AFCM) in Bandung, Indonesia from the 04th to the 06th of April 2018 was a full success for two VINCI brands, namely Axians Industrial Applications & Services Germany as well as Actemium Malaysia. In the manner of Vinci´s networking philosophy, both teams started to share information about similar projects and opportunities already some time before the event. Continuing talks finally led to the approach of sharing one booth at the AFCM conference in order to serve the interests of potential local customers by introducing the best of two worlds.
Axians Industrial Applications & Services presented their IT-logistics solution VAS that helps cement companies to improve their processes in the fields of truck planning and dispatch whereas Actemium Malaysia showed off their skills of industrial infrastructure works including process control, automation and more.
Both teams felt that the joint presence at the conference was in benefit to customer requests that are often looking for a provider that is able to serve both the software and infrastructure world. The good teamwork also led to the decision that future events and customer projects will be pursued whenever possible.
