Flux Framework

Big data and analytics provider + Infrastructure for crowd wisdom-based deep learning

MICO is the physical interface to sensors which harvest and relay data to the cloud-based Flux Framework (FFW). Each MICO device collects data that is fed to the FFW through backend servers or directly to other FFW connection points, such as users, databases or other service and hardware providers. Additional, third-party hardware devices may also interface with the FFW.

Two underlying concepts drive the system. The use of crowd wisdom as the source of an ever-evolving and growing knowledge database allows for Deep Learning within the FFW. In turn, Machine Learning driven by the FFW enables the MICO hardware to change its behavior to improve process efficiencies or set tasks.

An administrative screening layer regulates and directs this learning for optimal results in field applications of a wide variety.

Deep Learning: The FFW database, combined with the processing services server, stores data-driven knowledge which correlates MICO actions to end-user needs. This knowledge is enriched by the community of other nodes; allowing the FFW to continually improve these correlations and even invent new ones. The MICO nodes or community of nodes can actively participate in this process as “scientists” by finding new uses for MICO via trial and error, inventing new information sources, or improving the use of existing ones.

The FFW includes these components:

  1. MICO
  2. Highly secured database server(s)
  3. Highly secured data processing server
  4. Highly secured file server (storing all images, files, etc.)
  5. Backend - API gateway to the FFW
  6. FluxStudio - An integrated tool to enrich the FFW for data users and developers
  7. Application(s) - End user touch points (web, mobile, voice, etc)

MICO Defined

MICO is a multi-sensor hub. One unit can physically connect to up to 8 different sensors, but the low-cost units can onnect to an unlimited number of data sources.

Current multi-sensors need to be hardwired, or pre-defined by the hardware or electronics accepting them. If one replaces a sensor, switches manufacturer or changes ports a new electronic board will need to be manufactured.

With MICO you choose any combination of sensors and connect them to any port. They can be configured remotely using software. That means you do not have to manufacture a new electronic board.

Off the shelf sensors come with built in electronics and software. When using Mico can connect to a raw probe. That means you can buy the probe without the electronic board and software saving you big $$$

MICO can connect to any Wifi-enabled camera or probe and analyze/send the information it receives.. MICO has a built-in processor and WiFi communication. It can be configured with a cellular modem and pre-paid data package.

MICO sleeps most of the time to conserve battery power. It wakes up at defined intervals (pre-set, or user defined) takes sensor readings and relays data to the FFW, as required. It can create a local mesh network. That means that only one units has to be connected to the internet. All the rest of the units can pass the data between them until they reach the connected unit.

Backend

This platform is a dedicated platform for biological activities and each platform is dedication for its application.

Each frontend server contains all the information and procedures needed to support current users. The purpose of this architecture is to limit access to data in the case of a security breach.

The frontend servers contains all procedures and algorithms to support all users in the network. It also includes a specially-designed database that supports the expansion of data and the extraction analysis of it for any purposes. It will contain all the developed algorithms to support your application which are evolving to optimize and eventually automate processes.

Database server

Flux employs a backend server with limited access for maximum security. This contains all historical data, but information is only stored here. Data can be pulled out for front-end analysis.

Data processing server

This is a dedicated server for analyzing data and information. It can be used only by the database or through an OEM license. This arrangement permits swift analyses of information according to set requirements.

End-user touchpoints (via web, mobile app, etc.)

All touchpoints would "mirror" capabilities of the frontend server and would interface via API end-points.

Benefits to using the FFW:

  • Do what you do best: cut the costs of in-house development and maintenance
  • Rapidly expand your offering to customers and businesses
  • Reduce the cost of your sensors buy reducing the extra electronics and software cost
  • Change sensors, upgrade versions, switch manufacturers, port in additional sensors
  • No need to build your own server, software, and IT team
  • Powerful data analysis
  • Easy to add parameters to the database
  • Easily integrate your own software and end-user touchpoints

Be confident with high levels of security, borne out of military experience in Israel and products developed for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
