ASQ NextGen Pacific Region Emerging Technologies for the Next Generation Free Webinar Event

When:  Aug 6, 2022 from 04:00 PM to 06:00 PM (UTC)
About Our Speaker:

Topher Gehrmann holds a Masters Degree in Biomedical Engineering where he first

learned to incorporate programming solutions to tackle large, messy datasets at the bench.

He then spent the next five years working in Quality and Manufacturing for medical

device companies exploring worksheet-based and custom scripts to tackle data analyses

used for design, risk, safety, and production. Currently, Topher is a Data Engineer

programming fast and reliable cloud-based data science solutions for Healthcare and

Manufacturing companies across the country.

Meeting Abstract:

Quality Engineering is quickly outgrowing the preconceived notions of just

documentation and excel sheets. The QE of today needs to be skilled in data analysis to

ensure best-in-class Quality which effectively uses the growing pile of data available for

product development and post-development. We will discuss the use of large data and the

concerns about data quality, data governance, and data use cases that push the limits of

worksheet-based software like Excel. We will discuss the usefulness of scripting languages

like Python and SQL to bridge the gaps between messy, large data and useful

interpretations. Some examples discussed will include use cases for processing post-

market data using natural language processing or using machine learning vision tools to

provide high speed quality checks in production. We will also walk through custom

scripted solution samples to help kickstart your journey in programming!
