Where within the chain of operation in an industrial company is the best place to insert a piece of software? Is a bus system just a bunch of big computers moving around on wheels? Does machine learning hold the answer to maximising the value of each interaction between humans and software? Are we all data engineers regardless of what our name card states?

Drew explains how to take heterogenous data streams and distill it into a stability score that is an index of operations and produce high value alerts. We also explore human machine interaction to build a model more effectively than a fully unsupervised method.
