Watson IoT chief: AI can broaden IoT services

IBM thrives on the complicated, asset-intensive part of the enterprise IoT market, according to Kareem Yusuf, GM of the company’s Watson IoT business unit.

From helping seaports manage shipping traffic to keeping technical knowledge flowing within an organization, Yusuf said that the idea is to teach artificial intelligence to provide insights from the reams of data generated by such complex systems.

“So when a client says they want that [service], often clients themselves will say, ‘Here's some training data sets we’d like you to start with,’” he said, noting that there are also open-source and government data sets available for some applications.

“So when you think about, say, machine-learning models to help predict foot traffic for space planning and building usage … we can build that against data we have, because we already drive a lot of that kind of test data through our systems.” Another non-traditional use case is for the design of something fantastically complicated, like an autonomous car.

With a mobile assistant app on his or her smartphone, the tech can do more than simply referencing error codes – an AI-driven system can cross reference an error code against the history of a specific elevator, noting what, in the past, has tended to be the root of a given problem, and what needs to be done to fix it.
