Modeling IoT Equipment With Graph Neural Networks

Traditional neural networks usually concentrate on temporal data in system simulation, and lack of capabilities to reason inner logic relations between different dimensions of data collected from embedded sensors. This paper proposes a graph neural network-based modeling approach for IoT equipment (called GNNM-IoT), which considers both temporal and inner logic relations of data, in which vertices denote sensor data and edges denote relationships between vertices. The GNNM-IoT model’s relationships between sensors with neural networks to produce nonlinear complex relationships. We have evaluated the GNNM-IoT using air-conditioner data from a world leading IoT company, which demonstrates that it is effective and outperforms ARIMA and LSTM methods.
