Melanie Deangelis, a teacher at Bak Middle School of the Arts, served as an extern at FPL last summer and was recognized for her contributions that resulted in a patent for FPL. With the Power Delivery Smart Grid team, Ms. Deangelis helped develop a process to more accurately label images, that machines use to recognize problems in the power grid. FPL filed this artificial intelligence tool for a U.S. patent, including Ms. Deangelis as a contributor, and the patent was awarded. Congratulations Melanie! She is changing lives in and out of the classroom.
