Data Science, Big Data Analytics, and Machine Learning are industry buzz words that are traditionally thought of as being part of the internet business space or industries such as telecommunications, banking, security, and marketing. What is less promoted is how these methodologies can be applied to the manufacturing space. Manufacturing operations create massive amounts of data which can now be mined and analyzed for insight into our processes. Modern computing power and low-cost memory storage facilitate data driven decisions at speeds required to keep the machines running; thus, opening to the door to Machine Learning in our foundry industry. This talk with cover experiences and opportunities in data analytics with an eye on what is possible in smart foundry operation.
