comments from key state stakeholders
keynote presentation from an industry expert
overview of data science in manufacturing and results from a pilot project
opportunity to join a road mapping exercise
networking and interaction.
Key workshop themes
Manufacturing needs and opportunities
Data analytics and implementation
