AI & Machine Learning
Nuro builds a deep contextual understanding about home activity and conditions.
A Self-Learning Platform
True intelligence comes from learning, and Nuro has created a platform that enables homes to develop the ability to learn, and teach themselves.
Gathering information about various conditions in the home is just the first step. A smart home should also know what to do with that information. Nuro uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to develop the insights needed to automate routine tasks.
By considering multiple factors about conditions and activity in the home, Nuro builds a deeper contextual understanding of what’s happening in the home. This allows Nuro-enabled solutions to address a multitude of everyday situations. For example:
- Is there any human activity? If so, should any action be taken?
- What time is it? Should the lights or heating be set to a different level at night?
- How much light is in the room? If it’s sunny, should the lights be dimmed?
The insights provided by Nuro allow smart homes to make recommendations or take independent action, without any user intervention. People will not need to take any action themselves, unless they want to.
Individually Tailored Experience
This deeper level of understanding lets a smart home react intelligently to changing conditions and adapt to individual preferences, instead of just following a fixed schedule. The result is a more personal, individually tailored experience.
Further, Nuro shares these insights with other automation and smart home systems. By leveraging the data analytics generated by Nuro, these systems can customize their operation to fit the lifestyles of the home’s occupants.
Technologies that deepen understanding
Nuro collects and analyzes information in several ways to develop a deeper understanding about what’s happening in the home.
Edge Computing with AI
Each Nuro-enabled device has its own data collection, signature analysis, and basic AI and machine learning capabilities. Any data gathered is stored and processed on the device. Therefore, each device can operate independently.
In the case of a light switch, for example, the switch learns the patterns and preferences for that room and acts according to changing conditions — automatically and dynamically.
When a home has multiple Nuro-enabled devices, Nuro aggregates the information gathered by these devices at the “whole house” level, developing a deeper understanding of the entire home.
This contextual understanding allows a Nuro-enabled smart home to make intelligent decisions about the appropriate action to take.
Nuro-enabled devices teach themselves, so you don’t have to tell them what to do. They understand what’s going on and handle simple tasks all by themselves, making it easier than ever to automate your home.
There’s no need to set up a control system. No complex programming. No special wiring. No hub to configure. Just install or plug in the Nuro device. It does all the work for you.
With its contextual understanding of the home’s environment, Nuro begins to recognize patterns, creating signatures of “habitual” usage within a living space. These insights allow Nuro to identify a situation that might not fit regular patterns.
In other words, by understanding normal everyday patterns, Nuro can distinguish between “usual” and “unusual” activity.
