Final Seminar of EDGE project - Increased machine performance using EDGE computing


Online seminar, Teams

The project EDGE – Edge Analytics for Smart Diagnostics in Digital Machinery Concept – has performed research on how the performance of machines and industrial installation can be increased using edge computing. The results of the Edge project will be presented in a public seminar, Tuesday February 9, 2021 at 9:30–12:00. The seminar is given in English.


The following organizations have been contributing to the two-year long EDGE project: Wärtsilä, Wapice, Solita, Silo.AI, Top Data Science, Ponsse,  Fingrid, Meluta, KNL Networks, Epec, and the research organizations Tampere University, Åbo Akademi University, and the University of Vaasa. The project has been financed by Business Finland.
