According to Gerhard, bigdata analytics in the industrial era 4.0 is inseparable from mathematical data. This means that there is an optimization consumption and algorithm method in solving a problem.
"The algortma method is tailored to the needs of industry or each faculty. For example, in the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, it is done by digitizing information. The engineering faculty can be optimized with power control. Whereas in the faculty of economics and psychology it is directed at social networks or accelerated science, "said Gerhard.
He stressed, in industry 4.0, it cannot be separated from collaboration and innovation. "Collaboration without innovation and vice versa innovation without collaboration will be eroded by time. This is where the need for bigdata. And this has been done by Gojek, using one data from many data, "said this mathematician.
