2nd public commercial HTM application

Looks like a press release was issued today by EDSA Power Analytics, noting that it is teaming up with Numenta to develop autonomous monitoring of electrical power systems. Apparently, for some applications, electrical power failures are hugely expensive. EDSA develops software to monitor power systems to attempt to prevent power failures. HTM can be used by EDSA to learn the difference between normal and non-normal electrical activity, such that the HTM becomes increasingly able to predict a future power failure.
