CDN Lexicon



A web page containing the properly displayed output of the computations on actual data is called a DataNote. It allows for mobile algorithm visualization for management and lesser trained technical staff.

A DataNote is complete insofar as dealing with the particular algorithm, the viewer does not need access any other content source.


A CloudNote is an interactive DataNote with a web panel that empowers the user to manipulate a particular view of the algorithm’s output structures. Moreover, on the Cloud side the content of the CloudNote could be reconfigured.

AI CloudForm

The concept of a web form is well understood, it has input boxes and buttons to enter data and navigate. However, the navigation and content on the form, at best, is obtained from databases.

An AI CloudForm upon each click might run a number of algorithms e.g. classifiers to alter the content of the form per user navigation. This allows for the most applicable form technology even with an a priori built database.

Processing vast multi-dimensional data:

Machine Learning ML

A method of data analysis that automates analytical model-building. It is a branch of artificial intelligence based on the construct that systems can learn from data, identify patterns, and make decisions with minimal human intervention. For example, we do not know how a dynamical system works and want to determine the specifics of this dynamical system. ML learns from samples and provides insights and inferences. Systems can learn from data, identify patterns and make decisions with minimal human intervention.

Artificial Intelligence AI

Artificial Intelligence mimics some behavior of a human being. For example, an element or component of AI is Natural Language Processing that writes analyses as if it was written by a human.

Machine Vision MV

When AI algorithms are applied, visualization replaces the limited perspective of the human eye. For example, when microscopic circles are viewed in living tissue, the MV interprets these circles to highlight a tumor. This analysis occurs in a fraction of the time it takes a human being to perform such analysis.

Image Processing IP

Used to differentiate specific information from an image. IP removes all other aspects from the image to focus on a specific detail or image within the full picture. For example, to highlight areas of disease in a forest.

Note: There is new technology used by NASA – Lidar – that CDN integrates into its data analysis.

Wavelet Signal Analysis WSA

When big data signals are received, they are comprised of multiple signals. Using WSA algorithms, AI decomposes the original signals into many underlying signals to uncover trends, patterns and specific granular details. For example, periodic events and patterns over time, such as temperature or moisture data. This data is valuable to a range of industries such as manufacturing, agriculture, forestry, fisheries, etc.

The examples below pertain to scientific data – Hurricane Simon data received from NASA satellites. The volumetric four-dimensional data is downloaded from NASA and processed by CDN to form computational structures suitable for analysis. The images – that depict the data being analyzed – are generated by software rendering applications.

The green nodes indicate a central core to Hurricane Simon.  The droplets form communities in terms of shape, volume, density and structure.  This image is another view or version of the previous image – again at a point in time.
