This blog is a part of a series that explores key trends in smart infrastructure by leveraging Artificial Intelligence and IoT technologies. The write-up highlights developments in Big Data, real-world application of AI-powered analytics, and the role of data centers in creating smarter cities.
Big Data is a field that explores methods of collecting, processing, and analyzing large and complex datasets in real-time that traditional methods cannot.
Big Data coupled with AI allows for centralized computing, aggregate analysis, cross-comparison, coherent representation, and visualization of giant and complex multi-structured data sets in real-time. This process powers smart cities by giving citizens and municipalities the ability to make data-driven responses to various situations.
A critical resource in smart cities is information. The ability to process and analyze data collected from multiple sources simultaneously to identify security threats, environmental changes, consumer insights, and more is what makes smart cities truly smart.
AI-powered analytics combines Big Data components, such as aggregate analysis and coherent representation, with machine-learning processes to create dynamic predictive pattern maps. This serves an important role in helping businesses and authorities make data-driven decisions in real-time while being proactive rather than reactive to key changes.
Leveraging AI-powered analytics in the oil and gas sector helped improve offshore marine vessel work environments, security efforts, and business continuity. AI-powered analytics continuously scan, analyze, and identify problems by using multiple well-placed intelligent cameras and sensors.
The Artificial Intelligence-powered Video Analytics systems can detect multiple key events or threats simultaneously. For instance, Video Analytics can easily detect and alert authorities about any personnel entering unauthorized areas or someone not wearing personal protective equipment on board. The increased flow of information helps transform support systems from being reactive to becoming proactive by logging multiple events for easy post-review analysis by the management.
Data Centers play an essential role in regulating smart cities. In a city heavily dependent on information, authorities must protect and process data at dedicated disaster recovery sites. Data Centers will also serve as the hub for hosting AI-powered analytical applications due to their superior computing power, dedicated power supply, cooling systems, exceptional security, and a host of other qualities. These qualities make Data Centers critical to the development of smart cities.
Traditional on-premises Data Centers offered public and private organizations data security, complete control over the hardware and software, and a fully customizable solution that fits any organizational workload need. This, however, had several disadvantages, namely: a high initial investment, expensive maintenance, limited scalability, and low accessibility, to name a few.
MVP Tech’s modular Data Centers solution combines the scalability and flexibility of Cloud computing with the security and self-management capabilities of on-premises Data Centers.
