Spotting trends in truck data and making short-term decisions

Spotting trends in truck data and making short-term decisions

Using data is all about action; making better decisions faster. And speed is of the essence as market shifts happen quickly during the Coronavirus pandemic. There are plenty of variables in play, but you have an edge—data! (Of course you’re hearing that from this data-obsessed FE editor.)

I get it, it’s hard to parse through the data points and dissect the dashboards to make sure you are making the right decision. How do you analyze your historical data and match it to the short-term (or even real-time) data to make an impact? Those are the questions I put to Ashim Bose, chief data scientist and vice president of Omnitracs’ AI/ML and Data Engineering Organization. Watch the video above for all of his insight.

Ready to take the red pill and dive deeper into truck data?

Bose’s work is focused on machine learning, advanced probability driven models that can make predictions with startling accuracy. We kept the video conversation focused on the basics, but you can be sure I’m following to dive into the cutting edge of artificial intelligence and its impact on the trucking industry. Until then, check out our machine learning primer below.
