Upcoming Seminar

Developing IoT Analytics with MATLAB

Mechelen, Belgium
Novotel Mechelen Centrum
30 March 2017
13.30 – 17.00


The combination of smart connected devices with data analytics and machine learning is enabling a wide range of applications, from home-grown weather stations to sophisticated predictive maintenance systems. The potential of Internet of Things (IoT) seems limitless. However, designing IoT systems often requires complex web infrastructure and multi-domain expertise. In this seminar you will learn approaches and techniques available in MATLAB® to tackle these challenges.


  • Access and interpret data from IoT sensors and leverage it to build predictive analytics
  • Analyze and process out-of-memory data stored on Hadoop and Spark clusters
  • Prototype your IoT idea with ThingSpeak and scale it up to enterprise and cloud systems

Who Should Attend

  • Engineers, analysts, and data scientists interested in developing analytics
  • Solution architects interested in integrating analytics into business systems
  • Business managers interested in using data analytics to improve design and decision-making

About the Presenter

Ionut Barbu is an application engineer focused on MATLAB and add-on products for data analytics and application deployment. Ionut holds a M.Sc. in Applied Physics from the Eindhoven University of Technology. Before joining MathWorks, he worked at TNO and ASML.
