WISe Artificial Intelligence

AIoT integrates semiconductors, smart sensors, IoT systems, Artificial Intelligence and a data cloud to deliver to customers a unique offering to power innovation and digital transformation. Using WISeKey’s cybersecurity technology and IoT network, data will be collected in HIRO where it can be processed and through automation acted upon in real time in a highly secure environment.

WISeKey and arago join forces to implement the first ever end-to-end AIoT platform with the codename WISeAI resulting from the groundbreaking combination of their industry leading products: arago’s AI based Knowledge Automation and Data platform HIRO and WISeKey’s Cybersecurity, European Root of Trust and IoT/semiconductors technologies. AIoT integrates semiconductors, smart sensors, IoT systems, Artificial Intelligence and a data cloud to deliver to customers a unique offering to power innovation and digital transformation. Using WISeKey’s cybersecurity technology and IoT network, data will be collected in HIRO where it can be processed and through automation acted upon in real time in a highly secure environment. 

AIoT is the brain that will power the nervous system of the network of IoT objects operating in the WISeKey Ecosystem, which currently connects over 1.6 billion IoT devices secured with WISeKey’s VaultIC. With the introduction of 5G, the EcoSystem will continue to grow at a much faster rate as 5G will enable the connection of every object, person, and machine. AIoT will embed AI into the core infrastructure components of the EcoSystem including Root of Trust, semiconductors, and edge computing. Specialized APIs are then used to provide interoperability between components at the device, software and platform level to optimize system and network operations.  Data processed through AIoT is then collected and made accessible to extract value and enhance market intelligence and knowledge for customers.  AIoT also enables secure automation of actions and business decisions based on real time data and enables IoT to work independently with minimal human support, unlike the current state of the market which requires that all actions be coded in advance based on pre-defined scenarios. 

With the use of AI algorithms and predictive maintenance implemented through AIoT, IoT devices will have the capability to dynamically determine actions to take decisions and self-program based on analytics and customer defined knowledge, resulting in lower operating and maintenance costs for providers.

What is the
Internet of Things
and why does it matter?

Transforming the way we live, work and play. IoT can make life easier for all of us. Imagine if you had smart devices in your home, your car, your workplace ─ or even on yourself.

The Internet of Things is now a reality due to the convergence of several technologies.

By combining IoT data with cognitive computing, businesses can extract valuable insights to improve virtually every aspect of their operations and enable innovative, new business models.

A “thing” is any object with embedded electronics that can transfer data over a network — without any human interaction.

Examples are wearable devices, environmental sensors, machinery in factories, devices in homes and buildings or components in a vehicle.

WISeKey and IBM
to Showcase Their integrated
Solution to Secure IoT
at THINK2018 Conference

ZUG, GENEVA, Switzerland- March 19, 2018 – WISeKey International Holding Ltd (WISeKey) (SIX:WIHN), a leading Swiss cybersecurity and IoT solutions company, announced an integration with IBM (NYSE:IBM) to secure the Internet of Things (IoT) using WISeKey’s leading technology. The collaboration will provide enhanced security of sensitive data exchanged between devices across the IoT networks and the IBM Watson IoT Platform, by adding extended capabilities to secure IoT devices and the management thereof from a central location. By doing so, customers benefit from an increased trust in the data handled by their application, and a reduced risk of revenue loss due to cyber-attacks of all kinds thus leverage a greater value of their business.

IBM’s Watson IoT Platform is a cognitive system that learns from, and infuses intelligence into the physical world. Device manufacturers and businesses can use the power of Watson IoT Platform to build specialized, integrated solutions to solve their business challenges. Watson IoT Platform implements a “messaging broker” that allows the exchange of information between devices and business applications, using a secure Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology to bring authentication and data encryption. This implies a seamless integration with the WISeKey concept of Root of Trust (RoT) that delivers the digital identity that can be leveraged later in the Watson IoT platform.

WISeKey is the only vendor in the industry providing an integrated solution that combines a back-end certificate and device management system with a hardware “RoT”, a Secure Element (highly secure crypto chip) that protects the digital identity and certificates, to bring trust to the transmitted data through secure authentication of the device and related encryption of the data channel. Going one step further, the WISeKeyIoT components for IBM Watson IoT Platform are now made available to IBM’s technology users. An easy mechanism to create and deploy these digital certificates, as well as a “Security Broker” that manages communications by verifying the security level of the messages and implementing security and business rules, like renewing certificates, managing attributes and other key capabilities that make a difference when deploying securely large numbers of connected devices.

IBM and WISeKey invites to attend THINK2018 event in Las Vegas (March 19-22), where the Watson IoT platform combined with the WISeKey security technology is showcased at the IBM Booth. Special events include 6190A session: “Using Drones and Visual Recognition to Solve Real Business Problems” scheduled for March 19 from 4:30 pm to 5:10 pm at Mandalay Bay South, Level 2 | Surf F.

 “The fact of IBM choosing WISeKey to provide security technology to complement their Watson IoT offering validates our strategy and differential value proposition, based on a vertical platform approach that secures the IoT, from the Root of Trust to the chip,” said Carlos Moreira, Founder and CEO of WISeKey.
