Use Case

Use Case: How to detect anomalies for predictive maintenance in industrial equipment.

Use case

The sensitization of mechanical and industrial proceses is gradually increasing. This is mainly due to the availability and cost reduction of sensors, and widespread use of networks.

This provides plant managers with more frequent and more detailed information about the current state of the equipment and the process itself. Hence, it allows a greater degree of control over the quality of an industrial process, its resulting products as well as the health of the machine used.

Data Science

Here´s why Data Visualization is Key to Data Scientists


Data Visualization is a common graphical representation process used to map out information. Visualizing data is a helpful way to make it accessible and understandable to everyone. This is done by using visual tools including charts, graphs and maps.

Today, we are surrounded by huge data from all the aspects of life, be it social, technical, personal or medical. So, to deal with it data scientists take various steps to transform that data into a usable form so that it can be used by everyone. Data visualization is one of the ways this is done. After all, “A picture is worth a thousand words”, the same goes with data.

Machine learning is the most used technology by Spanish companies

Spain exceeds the European Union average in the application of Artificial Intelligence in business.

A percentage that, although it may seem small, we in Shapelets value as it shows how companies have been able to recognize the potential of this technology in a short time and reflects the enormous growth margin that Artificial Intelligence has in Spain.


Smart Data focuses on the quality and efficiency data has for companies

Companies collect a great volume of information that increases day by day. In fact, it is estimated that the volume of data generated worldwide will exceed 180 zetabytes in 2025 and, according to Seagate, that same year 75% of the world’s population will have an interaction that will generate data every 18 seconds, so the volume of information will force businesses to increase their speed of data ingestion and analysis.
