Mohamed Zaki, Philip Woodall and Andy Neely have been awarded a fund from Cambridge Big Data-EPSRC Collaborative Workshops Fund to run workshop about Manufacturing Analytics: The role of Big Data in the Future of Manufacturing.
We would like to invite organisations from key UK manufacturing sectors such as aerospace, automotive, life sciences, food and drink manufacturing and many niche capabilities in smaller sectors such as electronics and advanced materials. We will also open the invitation for other sectors such as tobacco, furniture, petroleum, paper, plastics and rubber products, chemical, and printing.
In particular, the workshop aims to:
- Promote discussions about the challenges of big data in manufacturing and potential solutions;
- Push forward the cutting edge of data science techniques, and demonstrate how manufacturers can benefit (rather than suffering) from big data; and
- Identify key areas to encourage collaborations between academia and industry to promote more innovative research.
More details will be released soon, but if you are interested in this event please contact Mohamed Zaki in the first instance.
