Predictive Maintenance for Wind Turbines + Data Journalism

  • Apr 25, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

17:30 - 18:30 Drinks, Pizza


18:30 - 19:15 Predictive maintenance for wind turbines - Mark-Jan Harte

Mark-Jan is a data hacker, experienced entrepreneur, and a partner at Algoritmica. Recently he has been involved in different predictive maintenance related projects for wind turbines at Vattenfall. The ability to predict failure of wind turbines reduces costs, lets turbines churn out more clean energy, and gives engineers compelling feedback for future revisions.

Sensor data are one of the fastest growing sources of data and predictive maintenance is one of the many applications that we will see more and more in the near future.

19:30 - 20:15 Data journalism - Nicola Hughes

Programmer-journalist, specialist in uncovering, structuring and analysing datasets for investigative news content.

Nicola left CNN International to learn to code with tech startup ScraperWiki, becoming a Knight-Mozilla OpenNews fellow at the Guardian in 2012. Starting in May she will be the Data Journalist in resident at The Times of London & Sunday Times.

Nicola will give a general introduction to the use of data in the mainstream media. Most will be basic but she will explain how someone with no professional training has taken to using data tools and how her methods have evolved.

20:15 - 21:00 Drinks

    I'm curious - are there any business here using GPUs to accelerate Big Data analytics?

    April 24, 2013

    • Monique D.

      Well somewhat different, but we use GPU acceleration for creating animation movies. Sort of a big data if you consider that a full featured animation is about 60 TB
