A guide to rules engines for IoT: Forward-Chaining Engines

What is a forward chaining rules engine? An inference engine using forward chaining applies a set of rules and facts to deduce conclusions, searching the rules... Read More

 

Manage uncertainty and probabilities in IoT application development with the right rules engine

The uncertainty principle is an important element when building computer logic and probabilities can seriously affect conditional statements (rules) over time. If you are reading this... Read More

 

Why the time dimension is vital in IoT application development and how using a rules engine can help reduce the complexity

The time dimension increases the complexity of application development for software developers that are building logic with conditional statements (rules) that need to change over time.... Read More

 

Should you use a rules engine to manage business logic in IoT applications? Yes, especially if the logic is complex

It's not obvious to non-developers just how different computer expressed logic is from human expressed logic. It's one of the reasons why developers have a difficult... Read More

 

How can you evaluate an automation tool for the Internet of Things?

If all software is ultimately automation, we can think of rules engines as software squared - they are software tools that automate the automation itself. A... Read More

 

What is a rules engine and when do we need one?

Abstraction is the removal of details in order to enhance the visibility of a pattern. A useful abstraction is one that removes things we don't need... Read More

 

Serverless automation with Waylay engine

The Waylay engine is the rule engine that separates information, control and decision flow using the smart agent concept.... Read More

 

Waylay engine, a new era of building cloud applications

Neither flow engines nor BPM engines can solve the problem of merging the IoT world of continuous real-time sensor data with the API world of cloud and enterprise software data.... Read More

 

Creating applications with cloud functions - how to manage rules and orchestration in serverless architectures

Services like AWS lambda, Azure and Google functions or OpenWhisk liberate developers from managing cloud functions, just like the cloud liberated developers from managing physical servers. But developing applications using only cloud functions brings its own challenges.... Read More

 

The curse of dimensionality in decision trees - the branching problem

When we talk about the curse of dimensionality, we often refer to the difficulty that arises when analyzing and organizing data in high-dimensional spaces. This blog is about a problem with decision trees that is similar to data analytics in high-dimensional spaces.... Read More
