Samsung ARTIK has introduced 'Rules' on ARTIK cloud services that utilize machine learning, the company announced on Monday. With the introduction of the new technology, ARTIK cloud services can now trigger Rules from actual device data. Furthermore, the cloud services can now predict data values as well as detect any anomaly in data values.
Users can create the data prediction and anomaly detection conditions in the web interface or using the Rules Application Programming Interface (APIs). Samsung says it is only the beginning of machine learning on ARTIK cloud services. "We wanted to show you what it can already bring to your Rules," a press release by the company stated.
Machine learning is the technology that gives computers the ability to make data predictions, driven by sample data usage/input patterns. On Samsung ARTIK cloud services, machine learning trains one of two model types that learn your device’s data usage.
You can include one of the above two models as a condition in a Rule. When you create a Rule from the My ARTIK Cloud interface, you have to select a device and then a field to use in the IF condition. This defaults to the Actual Value of the field.
Please note that these models take some time to be trained. The conditions will be triggered only when machine learning is complete.
