Augmented Operations Management: Using Machine Learning to Empower Industrial Operations Teams


Ever larger streams of data, produced by industrial processes and equipment, present an opportunity and a challenge for operations teams. This data could guide meaningful efficiency and quality improvements, but current tools cannot manage this flood of data. I’ll illustrate how the pragmatic application of machine learning technologies can empower these teams with a new generation of software tools.
