SKF is sparking conversation and spreading ideas with a new series of a knowledge-sharing symposium called ‘Let’s Talk’. Industry experts are discussing topical trends such as Digitalisation, Industry 4.0 and Sustainability in front of a live audience. The events are being held at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden and will be published on YouTube.
The first event’s topic is all about Big Data and Industrial Digitalisation. Speakers are Johan Stahre, Head of Division Production Systems, Chalmers University of Technology; Kent Eriksson, Business Consultant Internet of Things, PTC and Victoria Van Camp, Director Technology and Solutions, SKF Group.
Victoria Van Camp, Director Technology and Solutions, SKF Group says: “SKF has been dealing with Smart Data for the last 30 years. In the beginning we worked with hand-held devices to take in data from our customers to prolong their machines’ service intervals. Data as part of an entire puzzle is more valuable than data in small pieces. Today, Big Data can be analysed and I see a great opportunity in that. The combination of analytics and diagnostics with knowledgeable people is going to be very powerful in the future.”
The recorded symposium will be published on SKF’s YouTube channel. Further information can also be found on the company’s website at www.skf.com, or by following the hashtag #LetsTalkBigData across Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram. More ‘Let’s Talk’ videos will be published in the upcoming months.
