Marin Bek


Marin is a process control systems engineer with a MSc in electrical engineering. He founded his first startup in underwater robotics in 2012 in Palo Alto. Later became CTO of a successful international startup in San Francisco, grew the team to 20 developers and made with them real-time data processing software solution for clients such as Ferrero, Nestle and others.
Founded another IT company in Croatia (, where Ascalia was born (, becoming his biggest obsession at this moment to revolutionize factories with AI.



Real-life use-cases of AI in manufacturing industries

AI, or more precisely machine learning, brings many benefits to “real industries” – from wood processing factories to food and beverages, all of them are built out of common building blocks. By adding even basic ML capabilities to them such as anomaly detection or pattern matching, measurable increase in efficiency and productivity can be achieved. If you add edge/fog computing to the mix with DNN ran directly side-by-side with heavy machinery, opportunities are virtually endless.

We will check out a few of such real-life use-cases where Ascalia makes even the most rudimentary factories smart with the help of modern AI.
