The Supervised Machine Learning Trainer 3607A (SMLT-3607A) is a speculative maintenance and training device for the future smart city maintenance person. The project is aimed at exposing the mundane human-machine interactions that will define the future smart city. Any maintenance person, regardless of familiarity with machine learning, can use the SMLT to interface with abnormally behaving smart infrastructure, such as a surveillance camera. The SMLT acts as an industrial grade controller that allows a maintenance person to re-train the smart camera by recording new examples in real time. In ‘conversation’ with his SMLT unit, the maintenance worker will teach the camera what it is seeing and curate the training data set to improve its performance.
