What Is Real-Time Machine Learning?

Back to main page

Real-time processing is the latest trend in machine learning to improve user experience. Training data just isn't enough in some cases, especially where immediate adaptation of new data is required. Traditional machine learning models required historical data to train, real-time machine learning works by training the model using streaming data to improve frequently.

Real-time machine learning is implemented through an event-driven architecture instead of request-driven, injecting streaming data into the training model. When data streaming through pipelines occurs within milliseconds, data improves and pipelines can alter the stream accordingly, providing low latency for real-time learning and decision-making for data inference. 

Approaches to real-time machine learning

Reference data is constantly being updated in the data store as new data streams reach the edge devices. The enhanced data is inserted in the machine learning model and returns the required learning, processing, and deployment in real-time. Real-time machine learning can further be demonstrated by two different approaches: one where the system predicts the results in real-time, and one that accepts the new data as soon as it's received.

Real-time machine learning applications

Real-time machine learning can have a significant impact in various industries. Fast responses are essential for applications like autonomous vehicle recognition, IoT devices, video stream analysis, and identity predictions. These applications use machine learning algorithms with real-time streaming data inferences to overcome latency and throughput for decision-making in milliseconds. Because technologies require a large amount of data to properly train the models, using real-time machine learning configurations and deployments provides a steady stream of data and speeds up the training process.

Real-time machine learning has proven to be a breakthrough for advancements in quick data transformation and faster as well as real-time learning. Implementations of real-time machine learning are necessary to collect live data feeds and acquire predictions to constantly improve the online machine learning phase.
