Section: Sponsored session Technical level: Intermediate Status: Confirmed & Scheduled


The combination of smart connected devices with data analytics and machine learning is enabling a wide range of applications, from home-grown traffic monitors to sophisticated predictive maintenance systems and futuristic consumer products. While the potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) is virtually limitless, designing IoT systems can seem daunting, requiring a complex web infrastructure and multinomial expertise.

In this session, Amit discusses how to prototype and deploy an IoT system with data analytics without developing custom web software or servers. The workflow is based on MATLAB® and ThingSpeak™, an analytic IoT platform that can run MATLAB code on demand in the cloud.

    @amitdoshi is this analytics done using other tools?

    • Amit Doshi (@amitdoshi) Proposer 2 years ago

      Zainab, No it’s done using MATLAB. Though, can be done using other tools.

      • Zainab Bawa (@zainabbawa) 2 years ago

        Will you be explaining use of other tools and comparing tools? Else, this becomes a MATLAB specific talk which does not have takeaways for audience that doesn’t use MATLAB.
