Convergence Of Cloud Computing, Internet Of Things, And Machine Learning: The Future Of Decision Support Systems

[Full Text]



Gilberto Crespo-Perez, Dr. Angel Ojeda-Castro



Artificial Intelligence, Business Analytics, Cloud Computing, Decision Support Systems, Internet of Things, Machine Learning, Neural Networks.



The objective of this research was to develop a framework for understanding the Convergence of Cloud Computing, Machine Learning, and Internet of Things as the future of Decision Support Systems. To develop this framework, the researchers analyzed and synthesized 35 research articles from 2006 to 2017. The results indicated that when the data is massive, it is necessary to use computational algorithms and complex analytical techniques. The Internet of Things, in combination with the large accumulation of data and data mining, improves the learning of automatic intelligence for business. This is due to the fact that the technology has the intelligence to infer and provide solutions based on past experiences and past events.
