Hands-on Training on Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM)

By Monojit Basu, Founder, and Director, TechYugadi IT Solutions and Consulting. (Speaker Profile)

Hierarchical Temporal Memory is inspired by the capability of the human brain to process ‘high order sequences’ – that is, continuous and concurrent streams of data from multiple sources. Accordingly, this technique shines in detecting not just static patterns, but time-based patterns from data using multiple sources simultaneously. This capability is essential to human intelligence. This capability may also be relevant in designing cognitive analytics on continuous streams of multi-source data generated in IoT-based systems (including Industrial IoT).

In this training, we will use as a reference, open source Numenta HTM, an implementation of HTM built over the last fifteen years (and evolving). We will first present a conceptual overview of HTM, and then run a live experiment for pattern recognition and anomaly detection on sensor data, to help translate the theory into practice. We will also introduce attendees to Numenta HTM Studio that may be suitable for non-technical business analysts.

Key takeaways

  • Familiarize yourself with a few recent trends in AI research
  • Actually get to run your first experiment on a futuristic HTM platform
  • Take home a pre-configured set-up (virtual machine) for further exploration

Prerequisites

Awareness of one or two machine learning techniques for classification will help, but it is not mandatory for attending this training.

Target Audience

Developers, Architects, Technical Managers

Training on IoT in Agriculture

By Mohan Satyaranjan, CTO, Arthospira Agroponics Pvt. Ltd.  (Speaker Profile)

The ‘Digital Revolution’ is transforming farming. Rapid advances are being made with initiatives such as ‘more crop per drop’, and ‘farm to fork’. The approach in all such initiatives has been based on using smart, connected technologies with intelligent analytics for monitoring, visibility, planning, consumable optimisation, yield maximisation, and supply-chain loss minimisation. Technologies that enable quick, and easy verification of authentication of high-value certifications such as “organic”, are growing in demand. Ability to ‘trace the origin’ of an agricultural product from any time, anywhere is becoming an expectation. Combination of these technologies is also being referred to as ‘Farming 4.0”. For an EE, all of these are applications of IoT in Agriculture. It is an active area of research internationally, and a tutorial on this topic is most appropriate contemporary topic The productivity, and earnings of farmers in India is amongst the lowest in the world. This is despite India being ‘number one’ producer of a number of food items. 30-50% of food is wasted in the Supply-Chain. Cold-chain, appropriate storage, and other loss prevention techniques can minimise losses.

Key takeaways

  • What are the IoT opportunities in the application area of Agriculture?
  • How to choose the right technology in agriculture and build solutions.

Target Audience

Engineers (IoT, Automation, CS, EE/ECE) working in the area of IoT are the targeted audience.
