New life for rule-based analytics system with Machine Learning

Case Study
Industry:Homeland Security
Topic:Anomaly Detection

The rapidly-growing global market for mass transit security systems already exceeds $10 billion a year. Increasing instances of violence and rising awareness about mass transit security systems led to its growth. Mass transit security systems gather real-time data on the performance of trains and increase safety with sensors installed near railway tracks. These security systems are used to prevent train collisions and derailments and stop unauthorized access to fenced-off areas.

Fix before you Fail

Use Case
Industry:Manufacturing and facilities
Topic:Predictive Maintenance

Predictive maintenance is mission critical to shielding commercial and industrial facilities from tremendous risk and cost. Accurate modelling discovers slight changes in asset operations and alerts to oncoming malfunctions. With the speed of AutoML in creating as many models as needed, companies directly address any number of scenarios that impact predictive maintenance. A dedicated model built for each set of specific conditions significantly enhances precision. The results: Companies maximize equipment uptime and make cost-efficient maintenance decisions.

Retain customers quicker than they can leave

Use Case
Industry:Banking and Telco
Topic:Customer Churn

Churn is a constantly moving target.
