DATAFEST18 - Breakfast Briefing: Industrial Applications of Data Analytics and Machine-Learning

Price: Free

At this Business Breakfast event we will hear from Dr Gordon Morison, from Glasgow Calendonian University.

Dr Gordon Morison will rapidly review three current projects that employ data analytics and/or machine learning in industry applications. These projects are focused on solutions for:

  1. Predictive maintenance of live equipment
  2. Visual inspection for structural maintenance
  3. Supply chain optimization using sensors and machine-learning

The aim of this talk will be to provide a general overview as to what is meant by the terms Data Analytics and Machine Learning, and to provide a number of case studies showing how information can be extracted, processed, visualized and acted upon.

The first case study will detail information extraction and classification using Machine Learning for sensor data for Predictive Maintenance applications. Enabling a 'fix it before it's broken' regime.

The second will detail the application of Machine Learning and visual inspection for Structural Monitoring. 

Finally the last case study will detail the combination of Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and Machine-Learning within the Supply Chain.

Dr Gordon Morison received a BEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and PhD in Signal and Image Processing from the University of Strathclyde. He has held industrial positions in embedded software and post-doctoral positions in Communications at the University of Strathclyde and in Neuroscience at the University of Glasgow. Currently he is the Assistant Head of Department in Audio and Electronics in the Department of Engineering at Glasgow Caledonian University. His research interests are in Computer Vision, Signal/Image Processing and Machine Learning.

Tea, Coffee and breakfast roll will be available from 8 am. Talks and discussion from 8:30-9:30

The breakfast is sponsored by Centre for Engineering Education & Development (CeeD) and the event is open to all.

This is a DataFest2018 Fringe event, part of a week-long series hosted by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE).
