The power of combining AI and IoT
AI is a natural complement to IoT deployments, giving a competitive edge in business performance through better offers and operations. Some of the major, well-known platforms offering AI+IoT industrial solutions are Azure IoT, Google Cloud IoT and AWS IoT.
Avoiding unplanned downtime— Using analytics to predict premature equipment failure to schedule orderly maintenance procedures otherwise known as Predictive Maintenance can help mitigate the damaging economics of unplanned downtimes.
Improved operational efficiency — AI models can forecast operating conditions and define fly-adjustable parameters to preserve ideal results that will help improve efficiency
Enabling enhanced products and services— Natural Language Processing to interact with computers, AI-controlled drones and robots, Fleet management is some of the ways AI can help improve existing products.
Improving risk management— Many technologies together with IoT and AI help companies identify and forecast a range of risks, as well as automate rapid response
Life-changing AI-enabled IoT applications
Safety and access tools — AI could be used to assess daily access habits of different employees or positions and rates of employees to open doors and uses of equipment— providing insight into possible office layouts and potentially detecting suspicious activities.
Emotional analysis — In China, a solution has been made to scan a classroom once in 30 seconds and the algorithm will assess the emotions of the students (happy, sad, bored, etc.) and the actions of the students (reading, writing, raising a hand, etc.). The camera collects the data here, and the image recognition step is performed on the local servers.
Home automation to build Smart Homes— Multiple appliances & systems in smart home concepts, including freezing, AC, microwave, water supply, electrical supply, and security systems fitted with sensors in a home function as smart devices and connected to IoT apps. There, AI works to automatically act as data collection, interpretation, and decision-making systems.
Smart Cities— As with the smart home concept, the smart city works with the combination of IoT and AI technologies on a large scale. These technologies support water management, waste management, drainage systems, transport systems, parking systems, electrical grids, road and rail management, city-wide safety and security aspects, etc.
Healthcare industry — Healthcare produces a huge amount of useful data, and IoT brings a large amount to wearables. AI provides in-depth insights into the data and also offers HR management assistance, real-time responses, inventory management, allied pharmacy services and predictions as well as suggestions.
