The Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence provides AI services to Bosch’s business units and manufacturing plants. We strive to generate value for our customers by deploying machine learning in their products, services, and processes across different domains such Manufacturing, Engineering, Supply Chain Management, as well as Intelligent Services. In our presentation we will discuss how we utilize Spark:

  • To prepare and analyze manufacturing data from hundreds of assembly lines
  • To forecast thousands of monthly financial time series.

We will also share some of the learning points we have gathered as we have scaled up our use cases and explain the important role Spark has played in our internal operations and data collection, storage, and processing strategy.
