SAS and the Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT)

Gaining true value from IoT data through advanced analytics and artificial intelligence (AI).

What is AIoT?

Driving innovation and gaining a competitive advantage require more than just connecting devices and gathering data. Without AI capabilities, IoT devices and the data they produce have limited value. And AI applications would struggle for relevancy if it weren't for the IoT data that floods today's utilities, manufacturers, retailers, hospitals, insurers, etc. However, when you merge AI and IoT, you get the artificial intelligence of things, or AIoT – a revolutionary combination that can transform industries and accelerate business performance exponentially.
