Ekkono means cognition, and that is what we add to IoT (Internet of Things). We make connected things smart by embedding advanced machine learning at the edge – on the connected device. This empowers IoT to realize its true potential, where companies save and make money through predictive maintenance, automation and production optimization, and where products become self-learning and intuitive.
Ekkono’s uniqueness, which is the result of seven years of research at the University of Borås, Sweden, is a lightweight machine learning engine that can run on small hardware platforms. It runs closer to the data source, e.g. sensors, on the device, where it can see and process alldata, in real-time, and take instant actions. This reduces network load, make things less dependent of connectivity, and improves data security.
