A Data Science Central Community
To me it represents data generated by machines and used to communicate automatically between machines, without human intervention. Examples include high frequency trading or keyword arbitraging in search engine networks?
Do you agree with this point of view?
How about including medical monitors which generate machine data sourced from biologic systems. Examples include heart rate variability (HRV) which has been shown to be highly predictive of mortality in a wide variety of critical illness in both adults and children. The concept is that healthy biological systems are in a natural state of “chaos” and when critical illness develops, this natural variability is lost. Analysis of the low frequency (LF) and high frequency (HF) spectral content of heart rate variability, and the ratio of these two parameters has been predictive of mortality in a wide range of medical maladies. As such these medical devices, stream and analyze in real time continuous ECG signals which can be used in diagnotic outsome base upon advanced statistical and neural network algorithms.
