Splitting data

Splitting data into ‘train’, ‘validation’ and ‘test’ sets

When developing and deploying machine learning models, it’s important that we split the dataset into ‘train’, ‘validation’, and ‘test’ datasets. This protects against an overfitted model, and helps ensure results are generalised. In this blog post we will look in to how to split the data, and why.

How Digital Twins are Dominating Industry Transformation

Digital twins are a digital representation of a process, service or physical object. This computerised replica of the system or object is used to predict and assess performance and behaviour. A Digital twin’s main aim is to aid decision making by providing realistic indications of a systems current and future behaviour.

ISO50001: A Six-Step Guide for Developing an Energy Baseline

Creating an energy baseline is a game-changer when it comes to the analysis of changes to your assets, systems or sites. With an energy baseline, you’ll be able to monitor the effectiveness of a change by comparing the data before and after the change is made. This article is all about how to get an energy baseline set up.

What is Mechanical Vibration Analysis and Why is it Important?

Vibration analysis is one of the most important and effective methods of detecting the health of machinery. Vibration data can help us identify faults or detect warning signs of potential failures. It can also aid in the detection of misalignment or unbalance of assets such as bearings and rotating pieces of equipment. By looking at vibration data, we can also identify high and damaging levels of vibration.
