Environmental Research with RapidMiner: A Case of Success

Rodrigo Fuentealba Cartes, The Pegasus Group Company

SIMA Austral is a joint venture between the National Service for Fishing and Aquaculture (SERNAPESCA), the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) and The Pegasus Group Company, dedicated to building a solution for monitoring and detecting the presence of certain pathogens in the oceanic water, alerting the corresponding entities to take action and prevent the spread of these pathogens. This goal is currently considered one of the most important issues that needs to be addressed by the aquaculture activity worldwide, as it negatively impacts the ecosystem and the communities, causing huge economic losses, both directly and indirectly. This is especially important in Chile, one of the largest farmed salmon producers in the World. In this session, we will talk about how The Pegasus Group Company is addressing this issue with RapidMiner.
