  • Accuracy

    Accuracy is the degree to which the result of a measure conforms to the correct value or standard. It can be absolute or relative, (cf. Alteia Platform Terminology article).

  • Action

    Interaction between the user and the platform

  • Aether

    A comprehensive set of tools for rapidly aggregating, contextualizing, visualizing, and analyzing vision data, and deploying vision AI applications.

  • AI

    Artificial Intelligence

  • API

    Application Programming Interface

  • Application

    A consistent set of features packaged in a specific way, addressing a specific type of customer and a specific use case. An application can leverage one or several modules that are configured to a specific usage. From a sales perspective, an application is the first step to vision AI enablement, before a full platform deployment - as the deployment costs are much lower.

  • Asset

    A useful or valuable property managed or operated by an organization (Ex: plot, quarry, power line…). An asset is defined by Static properties and Dynamic properties. An asset can have a relationship with other assets. Eg. for distribution networks, the feeder is the parent of the span

    JavaScript Object Notation

  • KML

    Keyhole Markup Language

  • ML

    Machine Learning

  • ML Model

    A ML model is an algorithm that has been trained on a specific set of data to define its internal parameters in order to recognize certain types of patterns or objects and make predictions/decisions from a new dataset.

  • Orthomosaic

    An orthophotomosaic is a raster image made by merging aerial photograph geometrically corrected

  • PCI
