Machine Learning Basics Overview

1 pdh hour will be awarded for this technical meeting

About the Topic:

What if you could predict production anomalies to stay ahead of downtime or losses?  Applying analytics within the controller application is a new fundamental approach to achieving process improvements.  Currently industrial automation platforms are now beginning to provide embedded analytics that empower users to apply machine learning concepts without needing specialized expertise in data science.  Some typical use cases for machine learning in the industrial sector are operation, anomaly detection, predictive maintenance, and process optimization.  The ISA presentation will address the basics steps taken to leverage the use of machine learning and cover the types of machine learning algorithms that align with them.
