Following a competitive process, we are proud to announce that the 2017 Network Plus Summer School will be hosted by Swansea University and the University of Warwick, in collaboration with the Natural Computing and Applications Forum and the Neural Computing and Applications Journal.  The Summer School, titled “Machine Learning in Manufacturing: Addressing the Challenges of Industry 4.0”, will take place between 12th – 15th September 2017 at the University of Warwick.

Aim: Industry 4.0, Digital Manufacturing, Big Data Analytics have created new opportunities for cross fertilisation of machine learning and manufacturing streams. The objective of this summer school is to bring together research students and early career researchers in statistics, machine learning and data mining community with interest in manufacturing as well as manufacturing researchers who want to see how information technology and artificial intelligence can help them. The summer school wants to bring these interdisciplinary teams together.

We are looking for machine learning opportunities offered by following themes, but of course, we are not limited by them.

  • Predictive Analytics and Data Visualisation in Manufacturing
  • Supply Chain Management and Connected Enterprise
  • Automated Inspection and Image Processing
  • Human-Robot and Robot-Robot Interactions
