SPYR Inc., dba SPYR Technologies, a technology company whose subsidiary, Applied Magix, Inc., develops and resells Apple ecosystem compatible products in the multibillion-dollar smart home and connected car markets, announced that Applied Magix is looking into AI applications for its products.

While the public perception of AI is that robots and supercomputers are out to take over the world, the reality inside the area of IoT looks to be a lot more mundane on the surface. It entails the use of artificial intelligence (AI) decision-making systems to govern and ‘decide’ on behaviors in our environment.

“As part of our Secret Lab initiatives, AI frequently comes to the forefront of product development and how to make smart hardware even smarter. For example, various sensors track a number of conditions around your house, but when processed by an AI system, analysis of those conditions can be used to trigger actions that increase security or save you money in the long run,” said Applied Magix CEO Dr. Harald Zink.

“AI is a fascinating field that is fast growing and shows a tremendous amount of promise to make our lives easier in an enriching way,” states Tim Matula, chief executive officer of SPYR Technologies. “It’s exciting to get updates on what Applied Magix’s Secret Lab is exploring and working on and will hopefully be finding its way into our homes at some point in the future.”

Cartesi Joins Forces with IoTeX to Take IoT Into the Future

Cartesi | December 03, 2021

This year has seen the near infinite applications of blockchain technology continue to positively impact the world and the thousands of businesses within it, with growth in the industry not set to pause anytime soon. Supply chain, hospitality, medical data, payment systems and more already benefit greatly from updated and decentralized systems; the blockchain devices market in particular is expected to grow to over $2,459 million by 2026; a CAGR of 38.5%. The IoTeX blockchain is a leader in this field, already powering real devices, including award-winning blockchain-powered cameras from Consumer Electronic Show (CES) and the Pebble geo device, which is perfect for supply chain optimization in any industry. A multiple award-winning EMV-compatible blockchain for the Internet of Things (IoT), IoTeX was founded in 2017 and fuels the Internet of Trusted Things, as an open ecosystem where humans and machines can interact with guaranteed trust and privacy. This week an exciting partnership was forged between IoTeX and Cartesi, a platform that integrates the world renowned Linux and other standard programming environments to blockchain. As “The Blockchain OS” Cartesi bridges the gap between mainstream software and blockchain, welcoming millions of new startups and their developers to a rapidly expanding industry, offering them a home for their code. This collaboration will, in the near future, see implementations of some of the first use cases with Cartesi’s pioneering technology and the IoTeX infrastructure, performing technical integrations that will enable both teams behind the partnership to address much more sophisticated IoT-oriented solutions. Cartesi and IoTex will kick off their partnership with an Ideathon during The Dutch Blockchain Week, which runs from December 6th until December 10th 2021. The Ideathon will invite participants to come up with a use case for the IoTeX pebble that will solve a problem or interesting challenge experienced in everyday life. Participants will ideate a Web3 use case that uses real world data from IoTex's Pebble Tracker and the off-chain computing resources from Cartesi; using real-time data, public datasets, and Cartesi's Linux-based blockchain OS, they design a "if-then statement" that executes a smart contract depending on insights gleaned from the data type of choice. Example use cases are plentiful: Weather insurance could take real-time temperature data from a Pebble Tracker which is cross-referenced against the 10-year historical average temperature within Cartesi's off-chain compute environment, or real-time GPS data from a vehicle equipped with a Pebble Tracker could be cross-referenced against public map datasets within Cartesi's off-chain compute environment to provide a trusted trip for millions of travellers. Alongside a public community vote, the panel has a jury that will help in deciding on a winner. Empowerment for developers, new possibilities for end-users of IoT devices By bringing a Linux OS to blockchain, Cartesi has already unlocked a rich set of possibilities for what can be developed for people and businesses in future years. With this new collaborative effort, new experiences will be created for users of IoT technology; Cartesi OS has the potential to add a layer of privacy as well as more sophisticated data ownership management to IoT, giving users the option to choose when, where, and with whom their data is shared. With the reduction of environmental impact of blockchain technology a hot topic this year, both teams are planning to combine their expertise to create sustainable yet impactful future solutions for decentralized IoT; Through the partnership, both projects want to bring their respective communities of developers up to speed on the potential of their combined technologies. “IoTex is an environmentally friendly-oriented blockchain. We combine their blockchain technology, expertise on IoT, and hardware devices with our Layer-2 environmentally friendly blockchain agnostic technology. The integrated framework will promote a more powerful development framework for our communities, developers, and any companies interested in building fully trusted IoT solutions.” Cartesi CEO Erick de Moura About Cartesi Cartesi is the first OS on the blockchain, and their Layer-2 solution integrates Linux and standard programming environments to blockchain. This allows developers to code scalable smart contracts with rich software tools, libraries, and services they are used to. Cartesi bridges the gap between mainstream software and blockchain, welcoming millions of new startups and their developers to blockchain by bringing Linux to blockchain applications. Cartesi combines a groundbreaking virtual machine, optimistic rollups, and side-chains to revolutionize the way developers create blockchain applications. About IoTeX IoTeX is the leading decentralized network powering the future of web3 and machine economy (MachineFi). The platform is built for developers to connect billions of machines with web3 infrastructure, to create innovative products including DeFi, NFT, DAO, Metaverse, and MachineFi applications. Founded in 2017 with a team of alumni from Google, Facebook, Uber, Bosch, and Intel, IoTeX has launched a high-performance public blockchain with off-chain computing for devices and machines, cross-chain bridges, wallet, and the MachineFi marketplace.
