Big Data for Industry 4.0online course
Industry 4.0 uses intelligent sensors and control systems to allow real-time optimization of manufacturing and supply chain networks. In this scenario, the proper management of the huge amount of data, referred to as Big Data, represents a challenge from the business point-of-view.
The summer school will provide an effective multidisciplinary learning environment through the Open Innovation Lab (OIL) concept already in place in the area of Bologna. Participants, university, and companies will interact in an inclusive, dynamic and multidisciplinary environment toward the advancement of the whole Industry 4.0 ecosystem.
Meetings with the entrepreneurial local community will be arranged to foster exchange and generate new business ideas. During the summer school, participants will also improve their soft skills: user-centric service design, business plan and lean approach, pitch preparation and attention to details, creativity in innovation.
The availability of the local Open Innovation will provide participants with a better understanding on the whole process of managing big data collection, aggregation, analysis, and visualization to design new services along the complete product lifecycle. The synergies that will be developed within the OIL systems will provide innovative ways to understand Industry 4.0 as a whole. The school will introduce the basics of Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Edge Computing and their application to various companies that span from food to manufacturing, from security to IT management. As an important outcome, the participants will learn how to develop and evaluate different business models and will be challenged by delivering and pitching their ideas to companies based on real use cases proposed by involved industry partners.
The summer school will be organized by EIT Digital and the University of Bologna - ONLINE.
