Intel about the Internet of Things: Fast Forward is Now

Intel has a great list of articles based on various tech topics collected in one place called Adrenaline. I use their app too and regularly read about their take on the future of tech and what are they doing to enhance it so I’m finding myself learning a lot of cool new things from them.

In Internet of Things: Fast forward is Now William van Winkle explains that there haven’t been any major breakthroughs in industrial efficiency other than Ford’s production line, then the introduction of programmable logic controllers and, maybe now, the Internet of Things (IoT).

While IoT means that everything i your house will be connected to you via the internet and apps, the actual power of IoT is in collating the data from thousands of devices from thousands of homes to improve the way they work.

The state and promises of Internet of Things can be summed up in there words:

Cisco famously publicized how the number of connected things on the Internet passed the number of living humans back in 2008. By 2020, Cisco expects the number of network-enabled devices to reach 50 billion. The harvesting and analysis of data from these devices’ sensors will impact everything from our morning coffee to mass transit to farming yields. If we have “big data” today, the IoT of 2020 will give us gigantic data able to radically transform and advance our daily events. The IoT will improve leisure, increase commerce, and even save lives.
