What a fantastic time at the very first Oerlikon Digital Hub Hackathon! Creators, innovators, makers, PIONEERS and partners gathered in the Digital Hub in Munich, between Nov 8-10, to design digital tools for the industrial world.
During 24 hours, the #digitalpiOEneers worked on finding innovative concepts and new ways of working, to address real life issues from our own Oerlikon business units.
Welcome to our very first edition of “Under the Digital Hood” Series. Digitalization is one of the hottest topics in the industry world right now, and it comes with a bunch of funky buzz words and job roles that never existed before. In the upcoming editions of our series, we plan to go under the digital hood and find out more about the driving forces powering the digital world. And who could be a better fit for this than our very own Oerlikon Digital Hub team members.
We start with Dr. Pit Vanhoefer, Senior Data Scientist in our Digital Hub. Together, we worked on cracking the secret code of his role.
Most of us know the famous movie line – “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." Well, safe to say, we are not in the movies and such a scenario is not welcomed in an manufacturing environment.
We talk more on how do you go from mystery to complete awareness and capability of predicting what will happen in an industrial environment, with Catalin Batrinu, Senior IoT Architect, in our second edition of “Under the Digital Hood” series.
