cortana-intelligence-energy-demand-forecasting - Energy industry solutions using the Cortana Intelligence Suite with end-to-end walkthrough


Accurately forecasting spikes in demand for products and services can give a company a competitive advantage. The better the forecasting, the more they can scale as demand increases, and the less they risk holding onto unneeded inventory. Use cases include predicting demand for a product in a retail/online store, forecasting hospital visits, and anticipating power consumption.This solution focuses on demand forecasting within the energy sector. Storing energy is not cost-effective, so utilities and power generators need to forecast future power consumption so that they can efficiently balance the supply with the demand. During peak hours, short supply can result in power outages. Conversely, too much supply can result in waste of resources. Advanced demand forecasting techniques detail hourly demand and peak hours for a particular day, allowing an energy provider to optimize the power generation process. This solution using Cortana Intelligence enables energy companies to quickly introduce powerful forecasting technology into their business.

AssistantJS - TypeScript framework to build cross-platform voice applications (alexa, google home,

  •    TypeScript

As you can see, AssistantJS supports you in building more varied voice applications per default. Just use our template syntax ({Allright|Okay}) or pass all alternatives in an array. Thanks to our convention over configuration rulesets, we are greeting google assistant users different than alexa users. We could even greet them device-specific thanks to these conventions. Oh, and as you can see, inheriting intents (like the helpGenericIntent above) from other states (here: ApplicationState) is also possible.

search-deflector - A small program that forwards searches from Cortana to your preferred browser and search engine

  •    D

This software allows you to perform faster web searches by just tapping the Windows key, and typing your search. Hit enter, or click one of the results in the right panel. This is faster than opening your browser (if it isn't already), opening a new tab, and clicking the search bar. After a simple setup, you can use any browser (provided it is registered as a protocol handler) and any search engine. If you are having trouble getting either of these to work, send me an email at support@spikespaz.com or create an issue, and I will see what I can do to get your custom settings working.
