Intelligent IoT: Bringing the power of AI to the Internet of Things - ELE Times


The IoT is getting smarter. Companies are incorporating artificial intelligence--in particular, machine learning--into their Internet of Things applications and seeing capabilities grow, including improving operational efficiency and helping avoid unplanned downtime. WITH a wave of investment, a raft of new products, and a rising tide of enterprise deployments, artificial intelligence is making a splash in the Internet of Things (IoT). Companies crafting an IoT strategy, evaluating a potential new IoT project, or seeking to get more value from an existing IoT deployment may want to explore a role for AI. Artificial intelligence is playing a growing role in IoT applications and deployments, a shift apparent in the behavior of companies operating in this area.

IoT-Enhanced Processors Increase Performance, AI, Security


What's New: Today at the Intel Industrial Summit 2020, Intel announced new enhanced internet of things (IoT) capabilities. The 11th Gen Intel Core processors, Intel Atom x6000E series, and Intel Pentium and Celeron N and J series bring new artificial intelligence (AI), security, functional safety and real-time capabilities to edge customers. With a robust hardware and software portfolio, an unparalleled ecosystem and 15,000 customer deployments globally, Intel is providing robust solutions for the $65 billion edge silicon market opportunity by 2024. "By 2023, up to 70% of all enterprises will process data at the edge.1 11th Gen Intel Core processors, Intel Atom x6000E series, and Intel Pentium and Celeron N and J series processors represent our most significant step forward yet in enhancements for IoT, bringing features that address our customers' current needs, while setting the foundation for capabilities with advancements in AI and 5G." –John Healy, Intel vice president of the Internet of Things Group and general manager of Platform Management and Customer Engineering Why It's Important: Intel works closely with customers to build proofs of concept, optimize solutions and collect feedback along the way. Innovations delivered with 11th Gen Intel Core processors, Intel Atom x6000E series, and Intel Pentium and Celeron N and J series processors are a response to challenges felt across the IoT industry: edge complexity, total cost of ownership and a range of environmental conditions.

IoT and connected devices: The best thing to happen to home automation, or a frustrating mess?


Have you considered integrating home automation components such as smart switches in your residence? Allow my experience to serve as a cautionary tale. Earlier this year, I completed a multi-year dream project: My very own wet bar for entertaining. The project required demolition of the floor to accommodate new sanitary lines for hot and cold water, as well as new plumbing for a sink, a dishwasher, an icemaker, and an espresso machine. The project also required a lot of new electrical circuitry for integrated dimmable LED lighting.

Intel launches industrial IoT processors, software packages for various industries


Infrastructure around the world is being linked together via sensors, machine learning and analytics. We examine the rise of the digital twin, the new leaders in industrial IoT (IIoT) and case studies that highlight the lessons learned from production IIoT deployments. Intel launched two new industrial IoT processors at its Intel Industrial Summit as well as edge computing hardware and software reference designs aimed at specific use cases. The 11th Gen Intel Core & Intel Atom x6000E Series processors aim to bring more compute to edge applications. The company also outlined an Edge Software Hub including use-case specific reference designs, customization tools and reusable container packages for retail, industrial, predictive analytics, and computer vision.



The graph represents a network of 2,121 Twitter users whose tweets in the requested range contained "#iiot", or who were replied to or mentioned in those tweets. The network was obtained from the NodeXL Graph Server on Tuesday, 22 September 2020 at 21:13 UTC. The requested start date was Tuesday, 22 September 2020 at 00:01 UTC and the maximum number of tweets (going backward in time) was 7,500. The tweets in the network were tweeted over the 2-day, 16-hour, 57-minute period from Saturday, 19 September 2020 at 07:03 UTC to Tuesday, 22 September 2020 at 00:00 UTC. Additional tweets that were mentioned in this data set were also collected from prior time periods.

Wink's smart home platform faces a days-long outage


Wink's switch to a subscription service for its smart home platform hasn't had the best start. The company has confirmed reports (via Android Police and The Verge) of a wide-ranging outage affecting its services, including integration with Amazon Alexa and Google Home/Nest services and even The problems appear to have started on September 10th. The company's status page indicated that fixed had been put in place for at least some issues. However, there were still "partial" outages listed for most support as of this writing (September 12th), and "degraded performance" for both the Core and Hub frameworks.

How Security Analytics Will Define the Success of the Internet of Things


Currently, there are approximately 10 billion connected devices, with the number reaching 20 billion in 2020, 29 billion -- 42 billion in 2022 and 75 billion in 2025. By 2030, we will have over 100 trillion connected sensors. In 2035, the prediction is that we will interact with a connected device every 18 seconds, or 4800 times a day. Whether these numbers are correct or not, the fact is that the number of connected devices will increase exponentially in the coming years. While this market is growing rapidly, it faces a major barrier on the way to its success.

IFTTT debuts paid Pro subscription service for Applet creation


IFTTT has launched a new paid offering for Applet creators which goes beyond the standard If This, Then That protocol. The emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) devices including smart lighting, voice assistants, security cameras, and more have forged a path for us to automate our homes and business processes, but the sheer variety of products on offer means that vendor incompatibility can be a problem. If This Then That (IFTTT) aims to bridge the gap by introducing a way to forge Applets able to handle queries, conditional logic, and actions, circumventing vendor-specific ecosystem requirements. Debuted on September 9, IFTTT Pro will allow users to create Applets with a number of user-requested features, including that data can be queried from multiple sources before triggering multiple actions. Other features included in the subscription service include conditional logic factors and queries, and faster Applet execution. However, the new system also signals a change for free options, in which Applet creation will now be restricted to three.

Top 5 Mobile App Development Trends to Watch Out for in 2020


Mobile Development has become one of the most critical aspects of many companies. This is due to the acquisition of a more organic base of clients. Without a mobile-optimized solution, a company could face the question of lagging behind its competitors. Given that revenue from mobile apps' development has reached a new peak, people are following the trend in app development. Both the users and the developers follow the path of making life more comfortable.
