Prerequisite Knowledge

Interest in sensors and applied data science. Familiarity with challenges of sorting, organizing and learning from large data sets.


In the past few years, the proliferation of sensor-enabled machines and centralized data collection has led to an explosion in information. These sources enable us to learn, redesign, and automate the world’s systems.

In the transition to a machine-controlled world, oceans of data are generated daily from the world’s machines, and from this resource we are redefining ways systems can self-learn, self-heal, and improve our lives.

Today, data generation is no longer an issue; rather, the issue is how to manage and extract value from the rich signals available to us.

In this session, The Data Guild’s Cameron Turner will walk through several approaches to getting the most from your IoT data sources, including best practices and examples from IIoT deployment scenarios.

Participants are encouraged to submit questions and areas of interest prior to the event to tailor the session for the unique interests of the audience.
