Leveraging Patterns – VII

As noticed in previous posts sensors embedded in the ambient, in our homes, in appliances, in power meters and of course in wearable (I would say that our smartphone has become a wearable, we never leave home without it…) harvest data that can be used to identify patterns of the …

Leveraging Patterns – VI

Looking a bit further into the future, smart grids can become widespread sensors, covering a factory, a city, a railway infrastructure, a whole region or Country.For sure smart grids will need plenty of data for balancing power demand with power offering and these data are both generated and used within …

Leveraging Patterns – V

Now, let’s take, as an example, a power utility that has deployed electronic meters to its millions of customers (Italian power distributor Enel has deployed 32 million 2nd generation electronic meters). These meters can measure instantaneous power consumption and communicate data to the cloud. So far data are aggregated in …

Leveraging Patterns – IV

There are quite a number of characteristics that can be used to create a digital signature. For humans, as an example, we can use face recognition technologies, as mentioned, or gait recognition (this latter is based on image recognition plus movement analyses). Notice that iris and fingerprint analyses are not …

Leveraging Patterns – III

A digital signature is a pattern identifying in a unique way an entity. Notice that this entity can be a specific washing machine, a person, an industrial activity, even a city. No matter what, if in a given context you can find (through signal processing) a pattern matching the digital …

Leveraging Patterns -II

Think about your day. Most likely on week-days you live home around 8, get some forms of transportation that goes through the same roads and get to the office around 8:45. On week ends the “pattern” change and may differs significantly one week end from the other although they have …

Leveraging Patterns – I

The Digital Transformation is all about data. It creates data, it leverages on data, it uses data as a substitute of physical objects. In fact there are so many data that one of the opportunities arising from DX is to explore those data to extract useful information.  Rather than using …

The many faces of Digital Transformation – Societal Scenarios IV

Artificial narrow intelligence The Digital Transformation is fuelled by digitalisation, i.e. data, and it results in huge data creation and availability. This is the fertile ground for Artificial Intelligence. In turns, artificial intelligence powers industry to leverage from data and monetise the benefit of the digital transformation. Narrow Artificial Intelligence …
