Finding the right person for a vacant position is serious work. Manufacturers now have more data in their production than ever before so it has never been more important to employ the right individuals – like maybe a data scientist? This interesting information came to us from Industry Week in their article, “Data Scientists Are in Short Supply, But Does Manufacturing Really Need Them?

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the use of smart sensors and actuators to enhance manufacturing and industrial processes. It is also known as Industry 4.0.

IIoT leverages the power of smart machines and real-time analytics to take advantage of the data that dumb machines have produced in industrial settings for years.

Smart machines are not only better than humans at capturing and analyzing data in real time, they are better at communicating important information that can be used to drive business decisions faster and more accurately.

This surplus of information has created increased demand for data scientists who can turn that data into actionable insights and work with artificial intelligence (AI).
