Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning can deliver high ROI across many applications in industry, but its widespread adoption is hampered by a lack of suitable machine learning infrastructure and the need to centralise data which in turn leads to high costs, privacy risks, overdependency on cloud platforms and network availability. To solve these barriers to AI for Industrial IoT, T-DAB.AI are harnessing a simple but revolutionary idea. Rather than move data from Edge devices to central cloud platforms to train algorithms, move the algorithms to the data and learn at the Edge. Intelligence is achieved by combining learning on many devices via a novel technology called Federated Learning. To do this, we have created a revolutionary, decentralised AI platform: OctaiPipe.

FCLabs are a wearable neurotech start-up from Scotland. Our first product, CoreTech™️, is a simple, low-cost wearable device which tracks and predicts risk of human error, whatever the underlying cause. There are over 375m workplace injuries and 380k fatalities reported globally every year, with an economic cost of more than $1 trillion. Research shows that human error is a factor in over 90% of these incidents. It’s completely normal for our risk of error to fluctuate all the time, for all sorts of reasons. Factors such as lack of sleep, dehydration, boredom, stress and anxiety can all lead to an increase in risk of even momentary lapses in focus or judgement. But these are almost impossible to track and even harder to predict. CoreTech tackles this problem head on. Attached to any headgear, it works much like your Apple Watch or Fitbit, but for the brain. Our proven, patent pending technology tracks and predicts risk of error, preventing mistakes, injuries and fatalities.

measurable.energy are a UK based startup with a bold mission to eliminate all Small Power waste from the built environment. Small Power often exceeds 40% of total electricity usage in commercial and office buildings. Up to half of that is from powering devices whilst they’re not in use which results in unnecessary GHG emissions and costs. Which is why measurable.energy have created a solution that automatically identifies, measures and eliminates Small Power waste. measurable.energy achieve this by combining their unique smart sockets with machine learning and software. This allows measurable.energy to automatically identify devices plugged into the sockets, monitor their energy use, report granular real-time data and automatically turn individual or groups of sockets on/off. In addition, the sockets use light to indicate carbon intensity of the energy being used at a time. This drives impactful behavioural change as occupants opt to wait for a ‘greener’ energy supply. #unplugCO2Website Url
