‘Big Data’ Conference
University of Delaware’s Railroad Engineering and Safety Program
University of Delaware’s Big Data Center
The Annual Big Data in Railroad Maintenance Planning Conference addresses the important issue of converting the ever-increasing volume of data collected by railroads into information that can be directly used in maintenance management and capital program planning. The conference focuses on new and emerging analysis techniques (“Data Analytics”) and how they can be applied to the large and growing volume of inspection data collected by railways. The conference features more than thirty experts who will discuss the latest techniques for gathering, analyzing, and efficiently converting the “mountain” of complex data (a.k.a. “Big Data”) into usable information for optimizing maintenance and capital programs.
