The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to provide value and hold promise for both the consumer and enterprise alike. To succeed, an IoT project must concern itself with how to ingest data, build actionable models, and react in real time. Chris Rawles describes approaches to addressing these concerns through a deep dive into an interactive demo centered around classification of human activities. Chris explores the guts of IoT applications and discusses the tools that will enable you to build an application like this yourself, covering the necessary components of the entire IoT stack of ingesting, storing, and processing big data—all in real time using the open source Pivotal Big Data Suite.

Topics include:

  • Collecting streaming smartphone data
  • Training and building machine-learning models in real time
  • Building an application that scores real time
