Machine learning for predictive maintenance

In this webinar, we focused on machine learning for predictive maintenance together with our invited guests, Hanna Grönqvist, Senior Data Scientist at Hiab, and Slawomir Nowaczyk, Professor in Machine Learning at the Halmstad University and a Lead AI Scientist at Silo AI. Hiab, part of Cargotec, is the leading provider of on-road load handling equipment. At Hiab, Hanna is leading the predictive maintenance initiatives, and she’ll be joining the webinar to speak about predictive maintenance at Hiab for smart and sustainable load handling. In addition, we have a pleasure to learn from Silo AI's Lead AI Scientist Slawomir Nowaczyk who has both academic and industry experience in building machine learning for predictive maintenance. Previously he has built autonomous monitoring capabilities for smart vehicles in collaboration with Volvo. Slawomir is a well-known researcher on the topic of machine learning and deep learning for predictive maintenance in Sweden. The webinar is hosted by Kai Knuutila, AI Solution Strategist at Silo AI, who previously led predictive maintenance projects at the global provider of glass processing technologies, Glaston.


Watch the webinar to learn from experts with both academic and industry experience.
