Verv: Our journey to becoming machine learning specialists in the energy sector
How we began our journey: We began as an energy monitoring company, with a focus on advanced signal processing. Where we are now: How our technology has progressed using AI and machine learning and what that progression has enabled us to do (real-time costs, condition monitoring, safety alerts etc). Where we’re heading: Our development of a Blockchain-based peer-to-peer energy trading system using our advanced AI that will allow optimised electricity prices and improved access to low carbon electricity. Conclusion: Overview of how machine learning has enabled us to develop our home energy assistant and how we have been able to combine ML with other technologies such as Blockchain to deliver innovative solutions.
