Proposed Schedule & Synopsis

  • 1845 – 1900: Networking
  • 1900 – 2000: Using Data Science to improve Flight Operations.

Evolving from an engineering institution, Rolls Royce has made a move to provide digital service in the airline industry. The problems we are facing ranges from predictive maintenance in our jet engine and aircraft data to fuel efficiency and safety in airline operations. In this Data Science talk, find out how Rolls-Royce has spotted abnormality in sensor data, explored flight patterns that cost fuel, and used big data analysis to improve an airlines awareness of the challenges to safe flight. We will be able to see what the most significant challenge is, how it is growing within the aircraft fleet and how it compares to what you imagined. Using a combination of feature importance and co-violation analysis, we have developed a flight safety monitoring capability to statistically support pilots’ resilient decision and judgement.

  • 2000-2030: Q&A, networking
