Manufacturing Talks at
Data + AI Summit

We have a full agenda of Manufacturing talks taking place at Data + AI Summit. Here are some of our favorites:

Manipulating Geospatial Data at Massive Scale

John Deere ingests petabytes of precision agriculture data every year from its customers’ farms across the globe. In order to scale our data science efforts globally, our data scientists need to perform geospatial analysis on our data lake in an efficient and scalable manner. In this talk, we will describe some of the methods our data engineering team developed for efficient geospatial queries including:

  • Leveraging Quadtree spatial indexing to partition our Delta Lake tables
  • Extending the Spark Catalyst Optimizer to perform efficient geospatial joins in our data lake

Analytics-enabled Experiences: The new secret weapon

Tracking and analyzing how our individual products come together has always been an elusive problem for Steelcase. Our problem can be thought of in the following way: “we know how many Lego pieces we sell, yet we don’t know what Lego set our customers buy.” The Data Science team took over this initiative, which resulted in an evolution of our analytics journey. It is a story of innovation, resilience, agility and grit.

NLP-focused applied ML at scale for global fleet analytics

Equipment maintenance log of the global fleet is traditionally maintained using legacy infrastructure and data models, which limit the ability to extract insights at scale. However, to impact the bottom line, it is critical to ingest and enrich global fleet data to generate data-driven guidance for operations. The impact of such insights is projected to be millions of dollars per annum.
