What We're Building

Traditional approaches to storing structured and unstructured time series treat data organization as a problem best
solved by teams of data engineering experts. This approach succeeds when data exhibits “low variety” in kinds of
variables, collection rate and labels, but in sensor-driven environments, the inherent “high variety” of data requires a new approach.

Sentenai’s sensor data cloud automatically organizes sensor data (structured and unstructured) to unlock
its usefulness in machine learning applications. Sentenai provides ingestion, storage and data querying capabilities in a single, automated platform.
