Cognitive Code Corporation announced the availability and deployment of its SILVIA Secure™ conversationally intelligent applications that can reside natively on everything from mobile devices, televisions and cars to toys and critical infrastructure.

Security hacks such as the recent breach into Vtech’s data involving the ID theft of millions of children have companies scrambling, but one company thinks it has the solution when it comes to conversational interface and products that connect to the internet, otherwise known as the Internet of Things (IoT).

The Vtech hack highlights how digital products that connect to the internet often have far weaker security than other computer products and may be ominous for the burgeoning industry. According to research driven by Cisco, over the next five years, the number of devices that connect to the internet will number close to 50 billion.

Cognitive Code is a technology company that specializes in Conversational Artificial Intelligence technology reminiscent of SIRI, but with security features that heavily encrypt and lock private data to your device. While the majority of voice interactions require the cloud, Cognitive Code’s SILVIA technology is a platform for developing and deploying conversationally intelligent applications that can reside natively on mobile devices.

The emerging adoption of IoT enables users to control their connected devices through their smartphones and other devices, but at the same time, it has provided an opportunity for cyber-criminals to hack entire server based infrastructures, thereby potentially exposing consumers and businesses to major fraud and infrastructure attacks. Securing the Internet of Things is a difficult task for many reasons, but the most important may be the fact that the IoT is actually a collection of individual spaces grouped together instead of operating within a singular cohesive environment.

“Cognitive Code’s SILVIA Platform was designed from the ground up to run securely and natively on mobile and embedded devices. While the rest of the industry will be scrambling for a long time to deal with the legislative and public fallout of these server-based security breaches, we have a secure and portable solution today, not two years from now. Those two years can be the difference between your company disrupting the market or your company being disrupted by hackers and litigation,” said Leslie Spring, CEO Founder of Cognitive Code.

Cognitive Code’s artificial intelligence SILVIA technology is a cross-platform system for developing and deploying conversationally intelligent applications. Unlike other voice solutions, Cognitive Code’s SILVIA technology can be deployed in compact and secure environments, and includes native unconnected operations on mobile devices and embedded systems. It offers interactions that understands your queries without having to have a scripted and structured language dialog. It has customization allowing individual users to have a unique conversational experience. The technology is not dependent on data stationed on remote server farms or even an internet connection in allowing for transactions to occur. SILVIA’s artificial intelligent algorithms encrypts the data stored on the device thus adding an additional layer of security to personal and private data that resides on the devices. SILVIA’s footprint on a device can be as small as 5 MB, meaning it can reside on virtually any IoT devices including toys.

More than almost any other company, Cognitive Code can draw on many years of expertise in the development and deployment of artificial intelligence technology and security. Northrop Grumman, a leading global security company providing innovative systems, products and solutions to government and commercial customers worldwide has been an early adopter and important customer for Cognitive Code. Northrop Grumman has been deploying their security based applications for government and defense markets using SILVIA technologies for over five years.

Cognitive Code provides trust in a future where more devices and more people are always connected. A future where innovators, enterprises, and consumers can safely leverage smart objects to create actionable intelligence and secure digital interactions utilizing SILVIA Secure™. Setting up Cognitive Code’s SILVIA Secure™ to IoT connected Devices and Solutions is a key strategic step in the company’s plans to expand the company’s presence for the Internet of Things and services.
