Enhancing Fusion with Multi-Model, Real Time Streaming Analytics

Thursday | 1:30PM - 2:10PM | Columbia 8

Real-time analytics and prediction transform an ocean of data into actionable information and organizational wisdom. Bolt Analytics is a special-purpose, distributed data-flow execution framework that enables real-time analytics from multiple data sources. Creating inherently scalable and customizable data transformation pipelines by converting streaming data into a time-series representation is the core of Bolt’s framework. Bolt’s parametrized AI-driven models automatically detect and forecast anomaly occurrences in real time, and store them in Fusion, displaying results using faceted search. Bolt Analytics’ time-series models uniquely combine statistical and variable autoencoder neural models eliminating typical limitations of statistical techniques (time-series drift). The underlying distributed processing pipeline architecture can process up to 10 TB of data per day using a clustered Fusion system in production environments.
