These can be applications for the “smart city” (prediction of parking lots for example), logistics or even “predictive maintenance”, in order to anticipate the failure of a machine in manufacturers. “This requires a number of technical steps, ranging from data preparation – that is, starting from the raw data into usable data – to machine learning, that is, using the data. ‘an algorithm (…) to explain the past or predict the future», Specifies Mr. Stenac.
