Unstructured data are a fast growing area and a source for many innovative Big Data & Analytics solutions. Often the first idea of unstructured data seems to be that it's probably text data, even though that is just a small part. A lot of that "new data" is sensor data and especially multimedia (audio, video). Even though this part is growing extremly fast, it is very rarely used in analytics today. And even less in a real time context.
In order to experience what does it mean and how does it feel (and if it is possible to make sense of it) to work with this new data in real time, Wilfried Hoge and I have created a demo that shows our own experience and explains important concepts & implementation. approaches. The demo we created shows a drill equipment as it is used to build tunnels and how to analyze the output on the conveyor belt visually with machine learning approaches.
