Blog：AIoT: Artificial Intelligence for the Internet of Things
Author: COTX Product Marketing
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the technology that can help us reimagine our daily lives, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the real driving force behind the potential of the IoT. From basic applications for tracking health levels to the broad potential in various industries and urban planning, the growing partnership between AI and the IoT means that a smarter future may be coming sooner than we think.
Artificial Intelligence + Internet of Things = The Superpower of Innovation
IoT devices use the Internet to communicate, collect and exchange information about people's online activities. Every day, they generate 1 billion gigabytes of data. By 2025, there are expected to be 42 billion IoT-connected devices worldwide. As the number of these devices grows, so will the data. This is where artificial intelligence comes into play, putting its learning capabilities to work for the IoT.
Advantages of AIoT
Improve operational efficiency: AIoT can process and detect patterns in real-time operational data that are undetectable to the human eye, and can use that data to set operational conditions at any time to optimize business outcomes. As a result, AI can help optimize production processes and improve workflows, thereby increasing efficiency and reducing operational costs.
Improving risk management: Artificial intelligence can help organizations use data to identify risks in a timely manner and use that information to optimize processes to improve safety and reduce losses, and make more informed business decisions. Applications that can use AI to reduce risk include predicting mechanical failures in airlines and detecting safety risks on the factory floor.
Delivering new products and services: The ability to process and extract information from large amounts of data helps develop new technologies such as speech recognition, face recognition and predictive analytics. These newly created capabilities can be used in many applications, such as robots used in delivery services, disaster search and rescue operations, intelligent video doorbells, voice-activated virtual assistants, and predictive maintenance of vehicle or building automation systems, among others.
Reduce unplanned downtime: In manufacturing, unplanned machine downtime due to equipment failure can have a significant impact on business. Predictive maintenance can reduce the incidence and cost of unplanned downtime by analyzing machine data and proactively scheduling maintenance to avoid equipment failures.
Improved user experience: In a retail environment, AIOT helps customize exclusive shopping experiences and provide personalized recommendations based on customer information, demographic information and customer behavior.
Reduce product costs: By bringing analytics and decision-making to the edge for processing, AI helps reduce the amount of data that needs to be transferred to the cloud, thereby reducing the costs associated with cloud connectivity and cloud services.
Market Application of AIoT
With the maturity of AI technology, IoT is expected to enter a broader market application with the support of AI.
Smart Agriculture: Agriculture is one of the key areas that can benefit from AIoT. AI is used to create intelligent systems that can adjust parameters based on weather conditions, water usage, temperature and crop/soil conditions. Data from sensors is analyzed and used to make the best decisions in crop selection, fertilizer, irrigation and pest control. Artificial intelligence helps farmers improve yields and use resources for seasonal forecasting and weather forecasting for crop planning. Computer vision with artificial intelligence will be used to monitor crops, identify problem areas and issue alerts when necessary.
Smart Cities: AIoT collects and analyzes large amounts of data from sensors and IoT devices and extracts information for real-time adjustments that can create more efficient cities, maintain urban infrastructure and improve community public services. Practical applications of artificial intelligence include public services such as waste management, parking management, traffic management, and smart lighting. For example, drones can be used to monitor traffic in real-time and their data can be used to adjust traffic signals or lane assignments and management to reduce traffic congestion, all without human intervention. Similarly, sensors can be installed on garbage bins to alert cleaners to empty the garbage cans when they are full, thus reducing costs.
Intelligent transportation: AIoT in the implementation of intelligent transportation scenarios in the arithmetic, storage, and operational level, the elastic deployment of data nodes, and AI arithmetic. The video on the cloud gateway, terminals, and other equipment data seamlessly connected to the highway video networking cloud platform, and Internet data for integration and calculation, the use of data intelligent computing engine to complete the mining and presentation of situational business, to achieve the right-of-way allocation, road condition recognition, vehicle and personnel behavior recognition, traffic participant induction and other traffic indicators optimization.
With the idea of "Internet + traffic", the overall architecture of "cloud - management - end" is adopted, converging video resources in the cloud, realizing second-level viewing of video surveillance images in the traffic industry, and intelligent identification of alarms on road conditions, ensuring that "connected, visible, adjustable The overall architecture of "Management-End", the convergence of video resources in the cloud, the realization of the traffic industry video surveillance images in seconds and the intelligent identification of road conditions alarm, to ensure that "connected, visible, moving, can confer.
AIoT is developing new applications and uses cases that will help IoT reach its maximum potential. AIoT can be applied to a variety of markets including smart cities, industrial automation, healthcare, agriculture, and smart homes. We will continue to see more applications that incorporate AI into IoT endpoints, and more and more manufacturers will see AI as an important area of investment.
