Serverless automation with Waylay engine

The Waylay engine is the rule engine that separates information, control and decision flow using the smart agent concept: where sensors, logic and actuators are separate entities of the rule engine. Update (November 2020): This presentation, in the extended form was presented at Serverless Architecture Conference in…

Waylay Engine: a new era of building cloud applications

In this blog post, I will define the three key requirements that every rule engine must satisfy in order to fully unleash the power of serverless computing. I will also show how functional programming (FP) together with flow processing engines have given developers a restrictive…

Creating applications with cloud functions – how to manage rules and orchestration in serverless architectures

From server to cloud to serverless The first wave of cloud adoption enabled developers to remotely manage virtual machines, CPU cores, memory, disk, networking - avoiding the hustle of buying and managing physical servers. IaaS and PaaS are part of that evolution, which enabled developers…

The curse of dimensionality in decision trees – the branching problem

When we talk about the curse of dimensionality, we often refer to the difficulty that arises when analysing and organising data in high-dimensional spaces. In this blog, I will talk about a less known problem related to decision trees, which has a lot of similarities to…

Rules automation and migration in Waylay

We don’t think of an internet-of-a-couple-of-things when talking about IoT. It’s an internet-of-many-things or maybe even an internet-of-all-things that comes to mind. So the idea of connecting large groups of objects is held within the very definition of IoT. Next, the value of IoT resides…

Waylay Engine, Part 2: Bayesian inference-based programming using smart agents

This is the second part of our 2-parts introduction series on the Waylay rules engine. You can read the first part here and find out more about rule patterns on our technical documentation site. In this article, we primarily cover the default capabilities of the engine. If interested in…

Waylay Engine, Part 1: One rules engine to rule them all

In this post we will dive a bit deeper into the technology of the Waylay platform and explain why we believe that Waylay is the ultimate rules engine for IoT. Let’s start by reviewing the importance of rules engines for IoT, and specific challenges that IoT imposes…
