The Internet of Things (IOT) is the network of devices, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these things to connect and exchange streams of data. This big data can be analyzed from a business value perspective, which will create a better human-machine interface that is useful for the users.
Artificial Intelligence will play an important role to take useful actions from large amounts of digital data. An AI technology brings the ability to automatically identify patterns and detect variation in the data that smart sensors and devices generate.

Artificial intelligence and Internet of Things
Artificial intelligence is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans and other animals. It is a software module to perform complicated jobs efficiently with zero human interference. AI will observe, learn, plan, manage, and control objects using natural processing languages and this technology will enable machines to learn based on experience and produce reliable, concurrent solutions similar to a human being.
Internet of Things (IoT) is something where a group of devices, systems, and machines are connected through an internet ecosystem. This could be LAN or WAN or a Cloud-based setup. Patterns7 IoT platform helps enterprises to monitor device performance in real-time. With expanded capabilities of smart, connected devices and the data they generate is creating a new era of opportunities. Patterns7tech is a leading IoT solution provider in India in the Energy and Manufacturing domain.
The current data usage via Internet of Things
Currently, IoT and its associated devices mostly use the conventional mechanism to send, receive, and process the data. For example, a robot from the smart manufacturing industry 4.0 sends a large amount of data continuously, or an energy asset from the connected industry sends huge data. In the above cases, all this huge amount of one-sided data might not be useful unless data insights are created through AI.
How artificial intelligence can help
In order to avoid the failure to handle specific data generated from an energy asset or the critical collective data of a robot machinery unit, AI can come to the rescue. The end user will get customized and useful data through machine learning algorithms. Billions of devices with a great number of purposes will be connected. This is where AI will play a significant role and more complex applications will come under its domain.
The AI key to unlock IoT potential
The powerful combination of AI and IoT technology is helping iot solution providers to avoid unplanned downtime, increase operating efficiency, enable new products and services, and enhance risk management.
Combining AI and the Internet of Things, 3 Useful Examples
The following AI and IoT combinations are useful examples of how these two broad concepts collide.
It’s important to note that many so-called “IoT” devices wouldn’t make this list. By the criterion we’re selecting for (connected devices that leverage artificial intelligence), a device isn’t “smart” merely by virtue of being controllable via an iPhone app. Below are some useful examples:
1 – Remote Energy Consumption Monitoring, SMART Energy
SMART Energy Solution monitors your energy assets performance in real-time. Monitor real-time energy consumption and alert notifications on Mobile apps. Meter data is continuously read and displaying graphical representation of consumption on web and mobile apps. (SMART ENERGY http://www.patterns7tech.com/smart-energy/)
2 – Asset Performance Management, SMART Manufacturing
Patterns7 Industrial IoT platform monitors machine performance in real-time. It helps to improve the efficiency, manage losses and make data-driven decisions. With right tools & technologies, we help factories to transform for better. Read more to know how Patterns7tech is helping clients http://www.patterns7tech.com/smart-manufacturing/
3 – Real Time production loss reporting, SMART Manufacturing
Based on real-time cycle data from the machines or robots, hourly production is monitor through mobile app. Any production loss would help operation team to take timely action. APM Asset Performance Management solution can help to control losses and increase ROI. Read more to know how Patterns7tech is helping clients http://www.patterns7tech.com/smart-manufacturing/
