In May, Christoph Hochreiner has been invited by Karlstad University to give a talk on "Elastic Data Stream Processing for the Manufacturing Industry". In his talk, he provided insights into data stream processing challenges for the manufacturing domain and outlined the most pressing challenges for data stream processing. Based on this introduction, he presented the VISP ecosystem, which has been specifically designed to tackle these challenges. The VISP ecosystem already provides a solution for several existing challenges as well serves as a toolkit to evaluate further solution approaches. At the end of this talk, he provided several research challenges, which need to be solved to foster the next generation of production processes for the manufacturing industry.
