Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly playing a critical role in IoT applications and deployment. Consequently, acquisitions and investments in startups that merge AI and IoT have increased in recent years. Major IoT vendors are now offering integrated AI capabilities such as analytics based on machine learning.
WIseKey International Holding Ltd., a global leader in cybersecurity and IoT solutions, recently announced that it has upgraded its semiconductor manufacturing capabilities with the integration of arago’s AI capabilities.
Since WIseKey acquired arago earlier this year, the companies have reportedly been jointly working towards the implementation of the first-ever end-to-end AIoT platform by combining their industry-leading products: WIseKey’s cybersecurity, IoT, and semiconductor technologies and HIRO, arago’s AI-powered Knowledge Automation and Data platform.
Seemingly, one of the key objectives of the technical integration is to gain a foothold into the booming AIoT market to maximize revenue and create new opportunities in industry 4.0, finance, retail, automotive, consumer products, healthcare, transportation, industrial, IT infrastructure, smart cards, and smart cities.
The use of AI and predictive maintenance implemented through AIoT could provide IoT devices the capability to take decisions, dynamically determine actions, and self-program based on customer-defined knowledge and analytics, leading to lower operation and maintenance costs for providers.
WIseKey founder and CEO Carlos Moreira believes that the integration of arago will enable the company to provide its customers with end-to-end AIoT solutions that integrate semiconductors, IoT systems, smart sensors, AI, and a data cloud.
Apparently, WIseKey’s strategy to leverage its technological expertise and long-lasting partnership with a strategic partner is aimed at bringing new high-profile clients looking for cybersecurity solutions such as digital identity and privacy, secure cloud computing, secure semiconductors, secure mobile communication, AI, IoT, and others.
Today, WIseKey’s secure chips are used in hi-tech products and goods to protect data, firmware, and communication against cyber risks. These include modems, routers, smart energy meters, medical devices, drones, and many others.
