Before Optimizing Industrial Equipment with AI, Optimize Your Data

Posted by Sourav Dey on Jan 21, 2019 7:00:00 AM
These days, just about everything is "smart," from IoT toasters to internet-connected toilet paper dispensers. The existence of such devices points to the increasing availability of resources that enable more important pursuits. The related costs are decreasing, meaning it's possible to collect vast amounts of data from sensors attached to expensive equipment like oil and gas rigs, earth-moving tools, and factory machinery.

How to Meet Patient Demand for AI in Health Care

Posted by Vinay Seth Mohta on Aug 28, 2018 7:00:00 AM

The past 10 years have given us some truly innovative technology; now, healthcare providers are beginning to figure out the best ways to use it. They would do well to follow other industries by listening to consumers — in this case, patients—to determine the best way to incorporate this technology into their workflows.

Sensor Edge Finding at Cortex

Posted by Sourav Dey on Feb 22, 2016 9:00:00 AM

This article is Part 2 of a three-part series that we are writing about work that Manifold did with one of our clients, Cortex Building Intelligence. In our previous post, we talked about finding edges in sensor signals so we could use them to help us estimate a building’s start time.

We want to find sharp transitions in the various HVAC sensors—rising edges for electricity, steam, and static pressure and falling edges for supply air temperature (SAT). It’s easy for a human to pick out edges—but how do we teach a computer to do it?

Data Science at Cortex

Posted by Sourav Dey on Feb 17, 2016 9:00:00 AM

This article is Part 1 of a three-part series that we are writing about work Manifold did with one of our clients, Cortex Building Intelligence. Cortex’s vision is to use data-science to make commercial building heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) operations more efficient.

Over the next few posts, we want to give you a look "under the hood” of our data-science operations. To that end, we’ll discuss how we solved one of the foundational problems at Cortex: figuring out when a building’s HVAC systems were turned on.
