Machine Learning Coffee Seminar – Keijo Heljanko: SINGPRO project – Combining Data Analytics with Process Optimization
2.12.2019 @ 09:00 - 10:00
The aim of the SINGPRO project is to merge the Big Data platforms, machine learning and data analytics methodologies with process planning and scheduling optimization technologies. It applies these technologies to provide online, reactive and anticipative tools for more sustainable and efficient operations. The currently employed classical mathematical optimization models are limited by fixed parameter sets, which are commonly updated off-line and represent only statistical averages. Such parameters could be estimated much more precisely in an on-line fashion using Big Data technologies. By creating such collaboration interfaces between scheduling optimization, big data analytics and machine learning, the process related decision-making will become much more agile, self-aware and flexible. With the sophisticated data analytics methods, one can embed to the overall key performance indicators (KPI) also all information about the process, e.g., tracking abnormal situations (anomaly detection), individual process equipment performance degradations (predictive maintenance), anticipated process timings (prediction of process behavior) and scenario simulation (e.g., artificial intelligence AI planning). This is joint work with Iiro Harjunkoski from Aalto/CHEM.
Keijo Heljanko is a Full Professor of Computer Science at University of Helsinki. He is a vice director of the HiDATA, Helsinki Center for Data Science. His research interests include distributed and parallel computing, Big Data, data science, and data science applications.
Machine Learning Coffee seminars are weekly seminars organized by Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence (FCAI) and are held jointly by the Aalto University and the University of Helsinki. The seminars aim to gather people from different fields of science with interest in machine learning. Seminars will be held weekly on Mondays at 9:00-10:00. The location alternates between Aalto University and the University of Helsinki. At Aalto University, talks will be held in Konemiehentie 2, seminar room T6 and at the University of Helsinki in Kumpula, seminar room Exactum D122 (Gustaf Hällströmin katu 2b), unless otherwise noted. Talks will begin at 9:15 and coffee will be served from 9:00.
