Industrial Data Science

A review of machine learning applications for chemical and process industries

By Max Mowbray, Mattia Vallerio, Carlos Perez-Galvan, Dongda Zhang, Antonio Del Rio Chanona, and Francisco J. Navarro-Brull

In the literature, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) applications tend to start with examples that are irrelevant to process engineers (e.g. classification of images between cats and dogs, house pricing, types of flowers, etc.). However, process engineering principles are also based on pseudo-empirical correlations and heuristics, which are a form of ML.

In this work, industrial data science fundamentals will be explained and linked with commonly-known examples in process engineering, followed by a review of industrial applications using state-of-art ML techniques.
