Thanks to Jeff Adkins, I have looked at the website of a company called "Numenta" which has a seemingly interesting product called Grok. As a science fiction fan, I like words from science fiction books that made their way into the language, and Heinlien's word from the immortal book "stranger in a strange land" is one of them.
The Grok product by Numenta, illustrated by this figure -
is described as a tool that discovers in real-time patterns in events (data streams) and generate predictions and anomalies detection. The technology behind it is described to emulate the human brain and belongs to the neural nets family. There is a white paper on the website explaining it.
The site describes the types of created patterns as: temporal, spatial, and spatiotemporal. However, their use of the term "spatial" is non conventional in the sense, that it does not have any necessary relationship to location, but is defined as "relationships between things that happen at the same time", which in the examples relate to relations between attributes of the same event (e.g. the relationship between age, gender and income to loan amount). Calling this relation "spatial pattern" is kind of confusing to me.
Other than that -- seems interesting, I will be curious to get more information about real-life experience of this technology.
