SensiML’s New Web-Based Tool Makes AI Easier for IoT Applications

Prnewswire | April 20, 2020

  • The new SensiML Analytics Studio is a standalone web-based application designed for users without data science expertise.

  • It features UI-driven AutoML capability with sophisticated but intuitive controls, allowing users to quickly configure the software, obtain results, tune and iterate.

  • For data scientists and machine learning experts, SensiML will continue to provide a separate version of the tool with a Python language interface.


SensiML™ Corporation, a leading developer of AI tools for building intelligent IoT endpoints, has released a new web-based AutoML tool with a simple but powerful user interface which makes it easier than ever for developers to implement AI for their endpoint IoT applications.  This new tool is an evolution of the company's industry-leading Analytics Studio, a core component of the SensiML Analytics Toolkit Suite.


The new SensiML Analytics Studio is a standalone web-based application designed for users without data science expertise. Since it is a browser-based tool, there is no need for developers to download or install software locally. It features UI-driven AutoML capability with sophisticated but intuitive controls, allowing users to quickly configure the software, obtain results, tune and iterate.  New visualization and reporting features provide clear and easy-to-understand feedback.


For data scientists and machine learning experts, SensiML will continue to provide a separate version of the tool with a Python language interface. This version, called SensiML Analytics Studio Notebook, gives users programmatic access to SensiML Cloud and all of its associated functionality for building optimized ultra-compact ML sensor algorithms for consumer, industrial, automotive, and commercial, and agricultural IoT applications.


Both versions of Analytics Studio will also continue to complement The SensiML Analytics Toolkit Suite which provides a complete design flow for developers to build intelligent endpoints from start to finish, including raw signal capture, data insight labeling, algorithm generation, firmware code generation, and test/validation and support. 


The SensiML Analytics Toolkit was designed to simplify developing AI for IoT applications – making it possible for a single user or small development team to implement a complete AI-based solution for IoT endpoints. The new browser-based Analytics Studio improves the user experience through a sophisticated yet simple to use interface, so building intelligent sensor algorithms is easier than ever.

Sternum Launches First Live Attack Simulation Platform for IoT devices at Barcelona Cybersecurity Congress

Sternum | May 10, 2022

Sternum, the provider of the Internet of Things (IoT) cybersecurity and observability platform, offering complete real-time firmware security, announced the release of the first real-world attack simulation and evaluation platform, enabling IoT device makers to evaluate their devices against top current threats. The threats to IoT devices continue to grow and the impact has increased significantly. According to research by Forrester Consulting, 67% of enterprises in the US have experienced an IoT incident, and only 16% of enterprise security managers say they have adequate visibility to the IoT devices in their environments. In March 2022, the U.S Government Issued Stark Warning calling Firmware Security a “Single Point Of Failure” While there are many IoT security solutions, devices remain highly vulnerable. Device makers find it hard to understand the level of risk in their devices, prioritize their resources, and choose the most effective solution to reduce risk. Many security solutions claim coverage using frameworks like the MITRE ATTACK evaluation framework. However, no such framework exists for IoT devices. Additionally, the complexity of the threat landscape and the myriad of devices make assessing the level of risk and choosing the right solution to protect the devices an extremely difficult task. With its deep expertise in cyber offense and defense, Sternum first identified the 20 most critical attacks in the last few years and developed a platform to simulate these attacks and demonstrate firmware weaknesses, exploitation methods and protection options. Enterprises can then make well-informed decisions about how to best protect their devices. Sternum will demonstrate live the first attack simulation platform for the top 20 attacks on many IOT devices at their booth xxx at the Barcelona Cybersecurity Congress on May 10th. ABOUT STERNUM Sternum is the only code-free, device-resident IoT security, observation, and data-harvesting company. The Company’s transformational, patented software can be embedded into any IoT device, no matter the underlying code, manufacturer, or year of production, and is actionable whether the device is connected or not. This self-sustaining, unified platform brings intelligence to otherwise non-communicative edge devices, enabling them to autonomously protect themselves without connectivity and generate real-time data; processing happens in the Sternum cloud platform when available. Sternum was founded in 2018 by a team of highly experienced research, development, and business leaders, many coming from the Israeli Defense Forces’ (IDF) elite 8200 unit.
