Industrial environments have been capturing data from production process for a long time. But how to wisely process this data to sustainably anchor the added value of AI applications in your business context remains a real challenge.

Why participate?

This masterclass offers a step-by-step journey of four sessions to provide industrial companies a set of best practices and frameworks in setting up and maintaining innovative (AI) data projects.

What to expect?

The masterclass consists of 4 online sessions. Each session contains 1.5h of interactive presentation and 30min of questions. We acknowledge the sensitivity of some questions, and we therefore facilitate breakout rooms for more private discussions with our experts.

Below you find the 4 sessions:

  • Session 1: how to enhance your current data foundation?

  • Session 2 : how to properly integrate more sensors and IoT devices?

  • Session 3 : Where does artificial intelligence fit into your businesscontext?

  • Session 4 : How to operationalise and stainably maintain AI projects?

Who should attend?

This masterclass is tailored to all industrial profiles from maintenance/operation/innovation engineers to plant/CI/process improvement managers and even industrial data scientists. We can cater to such a diverse audience due to the unique mix of speakers and the format of the classes.
