IoT, Wavelets and Machine Learning in the Smart Home @ Scale By the Bay 2017


The smart home, driven by AI is a quickly developing sector. Security in the home is a hot sub-sector of the smart home. 

This talk will focus on a project that uses vibration sensors, wavelet transformations, and machine learning techniques to perform identification and intruder detection in the home. 

This talk will focus on:

  • the sensor considerations and the HW stack, 
  • upgrading the project from a python to a spark stack, and 
  • an examination of the data from raw input through the wavelet transformations.
