Announcing Grok 1.0 Soft Launch

NOTE: Numenta has announced a strategic partnership with Avik Partners, please read more about the future of Grok for IT Analytics.

I am pleased to share with our newsletter subscribers the availability of Grok 1.0 in “soft launch”. Grok monitors complex networks running on AWS and is the first commercial application of our groundbreaking Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM). Grok enables IT professionals to easily spot unusual activity, thus staying ahead of problems and preventing downtime. Grok includes the following features:

  • Very easy configuration and set-up
  • Using the CLA, automatically models each metric to determine normal patterns
  • Automatically identifies and ranks unusual patterns
  • Continuously learns new patterns as environments evolve
  • Does not require any manual threshold setting
  • Notifies the user when something curious is happening
  • Displays output graphically on a mobile Android device

Using Grok will enable IT professionals to get insights to their system performance by providing an early warning that something has changed. Since everything happens automatically, using Grok can reduce costs of system monitoring by requiring less work from engineers. And, given the mobile interface, IT professionals can get this information anytime, anywhere.

Grok 1.0 is available here:

We plan to formally announce and exhibit at the AWS Summit on March 25-26 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco; please stop by and say hello. And be sure to check out our updated website.

I’m also happy to tell you that in addition to working on the Grok product release, we continue to push our biologically-inspired algorithms forward. We’ve made some important progress recently and look forward to sharing it with you over the coming year. Our open source community, NuPIC, is growing and actively contributing to the advancement of the science.

Thank you for your support and your interest. We hope you’ll try Grok and give us your feedback.
