People learn about the world around them all the time. But computers, artificial intelligence, and algorithmic programs learn far faster than people. That’s what machine learning is all about.
VTEC Lasers and Sensors can develop machine learning algorithms and other high-tech tools that can collect, analyze, and collate data in order to understand processes and create solutions. This type of machine learning can be applied to a variety of industries including manufacturing, telecommunications, and environmental sciences.
For example, systems can be developed that measure real-time and historical air pollution data for specific geographical locations, like something as general as an entire city or as specific as a particular manufacturing facility or power plant.
Internet-connected miniature sensor units can record this data, then automatically upload it to the cloud. Machine learning algorithms can then process this data to discover hidden insights within this data. Thanks to today’s high-speed, high-powered computers using artificial intelligence and other technologies, these machine learning processes can be done faster, smarter, and more efficiently than they could ever be performed by people.
Information can be mined, analyzed, and collated in order to identify meaningful patterns in a vast amount of air pollution figures or other data. The system can then be used to define management goals and even create specific actions that can be taken to achieve critical objectives.
Solutions that work
Because pollution varies so heavily from street to street, and by the hour, it’s critical to forecast it with the greatest accuracy and spatial resolution. Leveraging the best of machine learning and atmospheric sciences makes this possible.
At VTEC Lasers and Sensors, we create customized systems that utilize machine learning to improve quality of life. Our live air quality data and hourly forecasts make the air more transparent, and empower businesses, researchers and organizations to build solutions that help people breathe better air.
AI meets environmental science
VTEC Lasers and Sensors combines machine learning with atmospheric models, traffic patterns, and even local weather data to deliver real-time and hourly forecast air quality data.
This information can be tailored to the specific needs of the individual client. For example, some businesses may need to know about specific pollutants, such as PM2.5, PM10, O3, or NO2 others methane, ammonia, molecular hydrogen, laughing gas – with absolute concentration levels.
The information generated by our customized, tailormade systems is highly accurate and reliable. Systems built and implemented by VTEC Lasers and Sensors already are powering large scale client applications – including our proprietary air quality forecast app, the VTEC Air Report, which is considered by many to be best-in-class for accuracy and reliability.
VTEC Lasers and Sensors also develops AI algorithms and atmospheric models that churn big data into accurate, reliable, and actionable hourly forecasts.
