This appointment aligns with Wiliot’s goal to integrate advanced AI, machine learning, and generative AI models into its ambient IoT Visibility Platform to enhance supply chain operations.
The Wiliot Visibility Platform supports major corporations in evolving their supply chains by ensuring automation and transparency.
