Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) March 20, 2012
Griffin Schultz, general manager of Predictive Solutions, and Raghu Arunachalam, Ph.D., director of emerging technologies at Industrial Scientific, will present a webinar on Wednesday, March 28 at 12 p.m. CDT entitled “Stop Investigating Workplace Injuries – Start Preventing Them Using Predictive Analytics.”
The webinar, hosted by Safety+Health magazine, will review actionable insights from a white paper, “Predictive Analytics in Workplace Safety: Four Safety Truths that Reduce Workplace Injuries,” that was published by Predictive Solutions last month. The white paper describes how predictive analytics, which has already optimized several other industries, is now being used by safety professionals to predict and prevent workplace injuries.
Schultz and Arunachalam will share the results of research conducted by teams from Predictive Solutions and Carnegie Mellon University in the development of powerful safety analytics and prediction models. The same CMU team helped develop the Watson supercomputer that originally gained fame by beating the top “Jeopardy” game show champions, and is now being used to help doctors make better medical diagnoses.
Attendees will learn how the four safety truths can help organizations reduce safety incidents, and will hear real-world case examples of companies who are already successfully doing this. Lastly, Schultz and Arunachalam will review how the prediction models were built, tested and then applied in safety software systems.
