Wilderness Labs' Project Meadow Project Lab v3, IoT accelerator runs on .NET
Wilderness Labs' Meadow Project Lab v3, an IoT prototyping platform. IoT accelerator that come preconfigured with a comprehensive C# .NET library, simplifying the process of configuring and managing your hardware.
PORTLAND, Ore., June 9, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Wilderness Labs, the driving force behind the Meadow platform, proudly announces the much-anticipated GA release of Meadow v1.0. After six years of dedicated development, including three years of public betas and the creation of an impressive 1.5 million lines of code, Meadow is now production ready. This release further empowers both hardware and .NET developers to deploy stable, high-performing IoT applications that can be securely updated in the field, creating a new era of possibilities for the Internet of Things.
Meadow v1.0 is the result of Wilderness Labs team's unwavering commitment to their mission of making hardware development as fast and easy as web or mobile. Drawing on the expertise of its talented engineers and invaluable feedback from their community of beta testers, Wilderness Labs has crafted a powerful, secure, full-stack IoT platform that enables enterprise developers to utilize their existing .NET skills to build embedded solutions in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional tools.
The heart of their platform is Meadow.OS, which includes a custom runtime that enables full, modern, .NET applications to run with native performance on true embedded devices: microcontrollers. Built on top of that are .NET hardware APIs that ensure managed and memory-safe access to complete, low-level hardware, effectively eliminating the unsafe memory security risks found in embedded development languages, and built on top of that is a massive library of peripheral drivers and hardware libraries, including graphics and industrial control, which enable true plug-and-play IoT development without the need to have a deep understanding of hardware.
In addition to the device stack, Wilderness Labs also announced the beta of Meadow.Cloud, which enables enterprises and developers to securely scale IoT applications from one device to millions on any device, built on any platform. Meadow.Cloud provides secure Over-the-Air (OtA) updates, uptime monitoring, crash-reporting, and seamlessly integrates with device data streams into enterprise clouds, for any device, including embedded microcontroller hardware and even Linux Single-Board-Computers (SBCs) such as the ubiquitous Raspberry Pi.
"I'm super excited to get Meadow v1.0 out the door; it's a huge milestone for us and I truly think it revolutionizes hardware development and brings it into the 21st century," Bryan Costanich, CEO of Wilderness Labs. "It's been amazing and inspiring to see how Meadow enables our customers to build things they could only dream of before. And with Meadow.Cloud, folks can manage any device in the wild whether it was built on .NET or not. Enterprises have needed a solution like this for a long time, and I'm stoked to be able to deliver it."
"I'm thrilled about Wilderness Lab's release of production-ready Meadow, which will unlock new possibilities for the world's developing economies. With its focus on .NET, security, and ease-of-use, Meadow has the potential to transform the way we build, test and deploy entire IoT solutions to create a more sustainable future." - John Kattenhorn, CEO of Applicita and Cofounder at 4RDigital.
As Wilderness Labs celebrates this achievement, the company remains steadfast in its commitment to continuous improvement and innovation. The dedicated team of experts at Wilderness Labs will continue to evolve Meadow, introducing new features, updates, and integrations to meet the dynamic needs of developers and the IoT industry.

NPR's Planet Money hosts react to WellSaid Labs AI Voice Avatar
SEATTLE, June 7, 2023 (Newswire.com) - NPR's Planet Money commissioned WellSaid Labs to create an AI Voice Avatar of their beloved former host, Robert Smith.
WellSaid Labs, the industry's best-in-class provider of AI voices, collaborated with NPR Planet Money hosts Kenny Malone and Jeff Guo to broadcast the first-ever episode of the public radio podcast written and voiced with Artificial Intelligence. The collaboration showcases the ability of the WellSaid Labs' proprietary Generative AI Voice Models to create an indistinguishable replica of a human voice.
Listeners of Planet Money know the distinctive voice of Robert Smith, long-time host and NPR personality. With Smith's consent, the WellSaid team created an AI version of his voice using recordings from previous episodes. Senior Machine Learning Engineer Rhyan Johnson led the project.
"The process of synthesizing a voice is really aligning the sounds that are in the audio files and in the data," said Johnson. "We are capturing all of the combinations of frequencies and vibrations that are inherent to a human voice. But the machine is just guessing sounds, and eventually, after hundreds of thousands of guesses, those tones and those patterns turn into something that sounds like a real person's voice to the listener."
The implications of this achievement are significant. Unlike other voice models that can emulate a person for short audio snippets, the WellSaid Model of Robert Smith's voice can accurately predict his natural speech patterns over long stretches of speech, such as a podcast.
The WellSaid team carefully reviewed all ethical standards and considerations with the podcast creators before proceeding.
"While the underlying technology of Generative AI is software — 0s and 1s, bits, and data — what you hear is a replica of a real human's voice," said Martin Ramirez, Chief Revenue Officer at WellSaid. "Because of this, we spend a lot of attention and effort doing our best to steward this technology the best we can. To expose voice cloning capabilities on the internet without guardrails is irresponsible, lazy, and unethical. We stand against the misuse of this technology, and this is why you've never seen a marketing stunt by WellSaid cloning anyone's (dead or alive) voice without their consent or allowing people to create AI voices of celebrities and nations' leaders just for giggles."
The final podcast episode of the series features Synthetic Robert alongside co-host Kenny Malone having an engaging conversation.
