Internet of Things, or “IoT” for short, refers to the concept of connecting any everyday device to the internet so it can communicate with other physical devices and be integrated into remotely controlled systems. At its core, IoT has evolved thanks to the advancement of multiple technologies working in tandem, including sensors, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, big data, automation, machine learning, 5G and wireless systems just to name a few. IoT looks to harness the power of the internet by allowing for dispersed electronics to communicate with one another, and giving the user a bird’s eye view and control of the entire system. There are countless applications for IoT and some of the areas with exciting growth potential are:
- Smart Home – this includes your appliances communicating with one another to improve efficiency as well as security and monitoring systems
- Wearables – smartwatches, fitness trackers, and other devices providing data tracking and real-time analysis
- Smart Grid – in order for autonomous cars and alternative energy sources to be reliable we need city-wide digital infrastructure comprised of interconnected sensors and systems that can seamlessly communicate with one another.
IoT has already shown promising signs of adoption, however, there remains criticism and much more to be figured out with regards to privacy and security concerns as we continue to embrace these technologies in our everyday.
