System Invariant Analysis Technology
Automatic modeling of correlations between sensors to enable early detection of anomalies
This technology automatically extracts and creates invariant relationships that represent the characteristics of facilities or systems based on massive quantities of sensor data. By comparing the values predicted by the invariant model with real-time data, "not usual" behaviors can be detected.
Since the relationships among the sensor data can be extracted and profiled automatically by machine learning, this technology can identify relationships that cannot be discovered even by experts. All invariant relationship formulas are simplified so that they can be calculated at high speed. In addition, all relationships among the sensors can be visualized comprehensively, allowing facilities and systems to be monitored without any oversights.
Technical introduction by video
Plant Failure Sign Detection Solution––detects signs of failure in a plant before an incident occurs.

NEC works with Chugoku Electric Power Company to demonstrate that early signs of failure can be detected from big data related to power plant information such as vibrations and temperature, thereby preventing the failure from occurring.
Preventive maintenance of transportation equipment, production quality control, anomaly detection in buildings and other infrastructure
Heterogeneous Mixture Learning Technology
Discovery of specific regularities in a variety of different data
Heterogeneous Mixture Learning Technology learns multiple relationships hidden in big data, discovers useful patterns and regularities, and selects the appropriate one depending on the situation.
This enables higher-precision prediction in dynamically changing environments than existing machine learning technologies, which often take just a single pattern into account.

Recognizing Textual Entailment Technology
Rapidly searching for text containing similar meanings in vast amounts of data
Recognizing Textual Entailment Technology judges whether two sentences have the same meaning by identifying key words and analyzing subject-predicate relationships. Unlike conventional technologies which mainly analyze the consistency/inconsistency of words contained in different sentences, Recognizing Textual Entailment Technology can produce correct results even if sentences contain different words that have the same meaning or use the same words to express different meanings.

RAPID Machine Learning
Fast and lightweight machine learning software
RAPID Machine Learning is a deep learning technology that learns and recognizes big data, including video, audio and text data without complicated processing involving human labor. It supports operations that necessitate human judgments and inferences. As this technology is capable of fast, highly accurate matching without the need to set rules, it is useful for example when selecting job applicants that match the employment information.
Human Resources Matching––aids in selecting applicants that match job requirements.
