Applications Engineer

About Geminus

Geminus is an industrial process centric digital twin product that delivers self-optimized design, predictive operational intelligence and asset performance enhancement to operators and engineering service providers. The product leverages physics-constrained artificial intelligence to deliver high-fidelity operations and maintenance intelligence and to continuously optimize the designs of assets & processes. Geminus integrates with operational data through SCADA systems, historian software, sensor gateways and enterprise asset management to trigger predictive modeling for the end-to-end industrial process. This generates high-fidelity operational intelligence and design recommendations to prevent multi-step failures, adverse shifts in yield, structural process faults and degraded remaining useful lifetime.


The company is based in Palo Alto and venture funded by The Hive. Its co-founder and Chief Scientist, Karthik Duraisamy, has over a decade of rich experience in physics-based modeling and machine learning through both fundamental research at Stanford University & the University of Michigan and industry collaborations. The fast-growing R&D team combines experiences across physics modeling, AI, industrial domains and data operations. The product is in pilot deployments in oil & gas and hi-tech manufacturing verticals. The product is also being made available as a module in leading engineering simulation platforms.
