Analyzing multiple on-handset sensor signals, Anagog’s technology provides a more accurate view of real-time and predictive mobility status for the handset’s owner – combined with ultra-low power consumption. On-handset analysis and contextual data can be used to significantly enhance the user’s experience with richer contextual services, at the right time and place. Anagog’s patented technology is a game changer in the field of on-handset independent artificial intelligence engines. It has the potential to change the way privacy is being handled by service providers and offer users better control over their data.
Using Anagog’s technology, supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms work on-handset to achieve the highest number of real-time and predictive mobility statuses per user. This cutting-edge technology opens-up a wide array of new opportunities for service providers. With the introduction of more personalized and engaging tools, the era of ‘one-size-fits-all’ mobile services is now formally over.
