Topic :

“The Economic Impacts of Data Analytics and IoT: Do “Live Factories” and Cognitive Intelligence Enhance Gains” in the Global Data Science Conference.

Abstract :

In the past year, firms such as Caterpillar and Tesla have adopted “Live Factories” to collect information from all the machines in a single facility and quickly adjust them to reduce down-time and disruptions. If using IoT resulted in substantial economic benefits for firms such as Ford, Boeing, and John Deere, without using AI and ML as well as cognitive intelligence, will these efforts to integrate AI and ML with IoT increase the expected benefits? This talk will use case studies and present results that tie gains from intelligent machines to the magnitude of the effort firms have made to improve their digital skills and workforces.
