UK artificial intelligence software startup Monolith has made a key US-based management appointment.

Jim Shaw, a former National Instruments (NI) and Diversified Technical Systems (DTS) sales leader, has been appointed as Head of Sales, Americas, to oversee Monolith expansion and grow the California-based team.

Richard Ahlfeld, Monolith CEO and founder said: “Jim joins us at a time when the EV industry is under great scrutiny. Companies are feeling pressure to bring products to market that satisfy both regulatory and customer demands. With his decades of experience, Jim will help battery and vehicle OEMs understand where AI can help.”

Mr Shaw brings 35 years of Test and Measurement experience in Automotive, Aerospace, Industrial and Semiconductor markets.

On his appointment, Jim Shaw said: “Throughout my career I’ve been driven by empowering engineers with better tools to help them solve their most difficult challenges. Now, Monolith is poised to play a significant role in how battery engineers can work even smarter and bring better products to market, faster.”

Monolith says the integration of AI-powered testing and validation practices will enable vehicle and battery manufacturers in the US to obtain new insights into the physics of batteries, delivering higher-performing batteries in a significantly reduced timeframe, with the potential to speed up the R&D process by 12 to 18 months.
