The Rise of Engineering-Driven Analytics

09:30–10:00

Engineering data has become essential in business-critical systems and applications. Audio, image, real-time video, motion, machine performance metrics, and other sensor-generated data is combined with business, transactional, and other IT data to create opportunities for sophisticated analytics on more complex phenomena. The flexibility to run those analytics, either on massive data sets in IT or cloud infrastructures as the data is acquired on smart sensors and embedded devices, is enabling organizations in many industries to develop intelligent products, devices, and services that expand the business impact of their data and analytics. In this talk, Sameer discusses numerous examples of this in action. Learn about new capabilities in MATLAB® and Simulink® that can empower you to design and develop these systems and be a leading force in this new analytics-driven age.

From Data Science to Data Stories: Bridging the Gap to Digital Transformation

10:00–10:30

Predictive analytics and data science are gaining importance and proven impact despite the hype. Surprisingly, the data science universe and the business universe keep coexisting without too much overlap. We claim that data-driven solutions will see a greater success in business and industry only when they are understood and internalized by domain experts (not just data scientists), and when domain experts take ownership of the solutions. This can only happen if predictive analytics outcomes are communicated to domain experts in human language with a narrative. Otherwise, they have little chance to be sustainably deployed.

Digital transformation and data-driven strategy are proven to increase EBITs, but are assumed to require epic efforts in terms of upfront investment and unique talent acquisition. Budgets are almost always spent on collecting the data with little to no plans on what to do with it later, which makes the transformation incomplete. Interestingly, the technology exists to turn all of this data into immediate actions without epic efforts and with existing human capital. Datastories’ claim is that turning data science into data stories is the missing ingredient in completing the data-driven transformation and making it an enjoyable and natural next step to make.

Academia Meets Industry: The Road to Le Mans

16:15–16:45

Student Race Team InMotion’s ultimate goal is to design, build, and race their series-hybrid endurance racer, the IM01, during the 24 hours of Le Mans race. On the road to Le Mans, InMotion will first attempt to break several lap-records with the full-electric KP&T IM/e. In order to develop and test both the KP&T IM/e and the IM01, InMotion is using MATLAB® and Simulink® to speed up the development process.

Virtual Overlay Metrology for Fault Detection Supported with Integrated Metrology and Machine Learning

13:30–14:00

To build up the structures that make up a microchip, some as small as 5nm, a silicon wafer moves though a lithography apparatus multiple times. This puts increased emphasis on reducing the influence known contributors have toward the on-product overlay budget. Using MATLAB® and Simulink®, ASML applied a machine learning technique known as function approximation to gain insight to how known contributors, such as those collected with scanner metrology, influence the on-product overlay budget. The result is a sufficiently trained function that can approximate overlay for all wafers exposed with the lithography system.


Get More from Your Data with Data Analytics

14:00–14:30

Scientists, engineers, and decision makers continue to explore and improve ways to turn large volumes of data into meaningful information. In this session, Guangyuan talks about recent developments in MATLAB® to support data analytics workflows including accessing and exploring new types of data, building predictive models with machine learning, and operationalizing analytics in enterprise systems.
