WizeBit describes itself as a “personal assistant born on the blockchain,” one that is comprised of “software, hardware and AI” and that is compatible with both personal and business-level applications. It’s a hub of sorts for smart technology systems designed to deliver a high-tech experience but not at the high-price of a user’s privacy.
WizeBit is akin to a decentralized version of Amazon’s Alexa or Google’s Ok Google assistant. Instead of Alexa, meet the AI-fueled Luna, a personal assistant that “connects IoT devices, accesses big data and uses machine learning to get smarter while keeping user information confidential,” according to the white paper. Luna can monitor a user’s behavior and preferences and create a model from it while keeping that user’s identity anonymous instead of sharing information with third parties.
The WizeBit system connects with other IoT devices and applications around your home or business -- think Uber, Roku, nest, DirecTV and more -- and acts as the master device. Wizebit “controls your devices, manages your routines, and monitors your environment” away from the public internet and via a sophisticated interface or voice commands. The user’s voice activates Luna and can also be used to “generate new content, tasks and automation scripts.”
Use the AI-fueled Luna assistant similar to how Alexa works. For instance, ask Luna the real-time price of bitcoin, in response to which Luna will answer your question and could use machine learning tehcniques to ask if if you’d also like for her to “look up another coin.” She may ask you how your day was, and if it was rough she may play your favorite song or offer to order your dinner for you “based on AI preferences.”
WizeBit applications include “home automation, security system, thermostat control, Wize Wallet, encrypted calling and entertainment.” Let’s break it down.
Wizebox is the cyber-secure hardware product that contains a dashboard through which the user interacts. The dashboard via a tab displays a “map of all devices in users’ homes as well as their current state.” Users can also add devices to the dashbard. Wizebox collects data from devices, encrypts it, sends it to the blockchain and that information is then transferred to the dashboard where the user can view it in real time. Users are the only ones with access to the the data, which is stored in an “anonymous blockchain profile.” WizeBit features let users program “alarms, lights, temperature, motion detectors, fire detectors and weather.” Hardware features include a “microphone, LCD screen, video camera, speakers” and ports.
AI-powered Luna is the assistant that fuels the ecosystem. Using AI, Luna studies the user and tries to remain a step ahead by “predicting requests.” Luna is built on open-source technology and will continue to evolve alongside the Wizebit developer community, who are rewarded in ERC-20-based WIZE tokens for their efforts to create “scripts, decentralized apps and creating new skills for Luna.”
Wizebit likens its Ghost Drive to an “anonymous Dropbox for the blockchain.” This is where user data is uploaded and then encrypted and is only “reassembled” and accessible to the user via a private key.
