Love the fact that the folks at Microsoft are placing a lot of emphasis on Machine Learning:
One important aspect of this IoT architecture is the use of powerful machine learning algorithms. Machine learning services can inspect each packet of data flowing through the cloud and can create algorithms on-the-fly that can learn from, and make predictions on the data as it streams in. An example, from the aforementioned asthmatic scenario, would be for machine learning algorithms to learn and notify caregivers in real time of respiratory events that are classified as normal, predicted, anomalous, or even dangerous.
