Edge Expertise

Sharing Knowledge, Because We Can

Ekkono is a company built on many years of research and thought leadership. On a mission to transform the way we use and develop connected things in the world, we want to share our knowledge on Edge Machine Learning and related topics.

The spring of 2020 we released the concept #openfika – short and informative webinars on relevant topics related to what we do. All webinars are recorded and available in our YouTube channel. We have also written Short White Papers or Articles on each topic. Enjoy the watch and read!

#14: How to Start an Edge Machine Learning Project

Robert Zimmerman, Ekkono, Director of Product Marketing
Joakim Andersson, Ekkono, VP of Solutions Architecture

All product companies most likely have the scenario of product improvements or quality issues that needs to be addressed. If you want your products to be smart, predictive and sustainable, then you should deploy Edge Machine Learning. Here we explain how you get started with your first Edge Machine Learning project and some frameworks to use.

#12: The Ekkono Story

Rikard König, Ekkono, CTO
Jon Lindén, Ekkono, CEO 

The story of Ekkono Solutions originally started back in 1989, when Ekkono’s CTO and Co-founder, Rikard König, got his first computer. From his boys room, to university studies and later a PhD, applying his research in Machine Learning to the real world. In 2015 Jon Linden came along; A rebound tech entrepreneur with visions to transform the future of IoT by training small devices to become self-earning, i.e. “smart”. Here you get the ‘Ekkono Story’ when Rikard and Jon take you on the journey of a Swedish tech startup from the very beginning.

#10: Sustainable and Smart IoT

Jon Lindén, Ekkono, CEO

IoT holds a tremendous potential. Not just business potential, but to save the world! Product OEMs have for decades perfected the design of products to make them energy efficient. Imagine when we operate every machine and vehicle at optimum! Now you can auto-configure your air conditioner for Stockholm or Bangkok, reduce wear and extend life-length of your motor by tuning it for its application, and much more. Learn how Smart IoT will expedite your sustainability efforts.

#7: Federated Learning

Rikard König, Ekkono, CTO

In Traditional Machine Learning you process big data from many to find common denominators. In Edge Machine Learning we turn it around and learn what’s normal and identify deviations for the individual device. Federated Learning marries the two by correlating and comparing the Edge Machine Learning models from many, which opens entirely new opportunities.

#4: Virtual Sensors

Joakim Andersson, Ekkono, VP Solutions Architecture
Jon Lindén, Ekkono, CEO

Edge Machine Learning is excellent for predicting sensor values. This can be used as a Virtual Sensor to replace an intrusive or hard to deploy sensor, an expensive sensor, one that needs constant calibration, or as a backup for a failing sensor. Here we address both the technical, practical and business aspects of Virtual Sensors.

#1: Capitalizing on Customer Data – Forget About It

Jon Lindén, Ekkono CEO

IoT is all about putting sensors on things and connecting them to the Internet. The data generated enables every product OEM to become the next Google or Facebook by capitalizing on this data. Or not. Due to integrity and complexity this is not the case – but there are plenty of other ways to benefit from IoT.
