What is the Internet of Things (IoT)?

#artificialintelligence

Over the past few years, IoT has become a major focus of the connectivity technology industry. But what exactly is IoT? This acronym refers to the'Internet of Things' and encompasses all objects and devices that are able to connect and exchange data with other devices via a mobile network. This is what is known as interaction: is dispensed with and the machines communicate directly with each other. IoT is a technology that has recently flourished thanks to the roll-out of the 5G network, which makes it possible for connectivity to reach the vast majority of current electronic devices: from industrial machinery to cars, buildings or home tools such as household appliances, virtual assistants or smartphones.


In the Garden of Hyperautomation

#artificialintelligence

Whether you're hip to it or not, conversational AI--which is really the sequencing of technologies like NLU/NLP, code-free programming, RPA, and machine learning inside of organizational ecosystems--has already begun reshaping the world at large. Lemonade, a tech- and user-centric insurance company is upending its industry by providing customers with a rewarding experience buying insurance that's facilitated by Maya, an intelligent digital worker described as "utterly charming" that can quickly connect dots and get customers insured. Maya is essentially an infinitely replicable agent that is always learning and doesn't make the same mistake twice. Compare that with whatever it costs Allstate to retain more than 12,000 agents in the US and Canada who are likely using outdated legacy systems and it's clear to see which way ROI is trending. Even bigger successes have been enjoyed by Ant Group (formerly Ant Financial) a nimble, Chinese financial giant that had surpassed the number of customers served by today's largest US banks by more than 10 times back at the start of 2020. Their IPO--which would have been the world's largest to date--collapsed after Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping allegedly intervened. Subsequently, the company has broadened its scope past fintech to include sustainability and inclusive services (whatever those might be). Still, its core operations were built around a streamlined business structure that uses conversational AI to deliver meaningful experiences. While this kind of adoption of conversational AI in business settings is roundly expected to boom in the coming years, it will quickly seep into our daily lives as well, going beyond how we interact with the many companies in our lives and taking root in our interactions with all of the different technologies we regularly touch. I've always taken an interest in these topics, but like many cutting-edge things, they're hard to approach. Especially if you have no idea where to start. Especially if you don't have the expertise; the lexicon, the mindset, the lived experience. I'm a bit of an accidental Luddite, someone perpetually late to the party when it comes to the latest and greatest. Not to say that I'm completely unfamiliar with these things, just that integrating them into my work, and my life, is hard.


Green ICT Development and Sustainability in the 5.5G Era

#artificialintelligence

The future is fast approaching. Organizations across industries are faced with embracing the digital advancements of our time while pushing for green development and sustainability. Ronald van Loon is a Huawei partner and attended Win-Win Huawei Innovation Week in Shenzhen China, to learn about Green Informations and Communications Technology, or Green ICT. Continuous innovation is required to support the solutions that are responsible for the green development of the ICT industry. ICT will also provide an integral role in helping industries achieve efficient green development.


The AIoT Revolution: How AI and IoT Are Transforming Our World - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

The rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) has been fuelled by the falling cost of sensors, the proliferation of connected devices, and the advancement of artificial intelligence (AI). The IoT is the network of physical objects (vehicles, devices, buildings, etc.) embedded with sensors, software, electronics, and network connectivity that allows these objects to collect and exchange data. According to a recent report from McKinsey, the IoT could have a total economic impact of up to $12.6 trillion per year by 2030. While the IoT is still in its infancy, the AIoT represents the next wave of the IoT, where AI is used to turn data into insights and actions. The AIoT has the potential to transform industries and society, and it is already starting to have an impact.

The graph represents a network of 3,954 Twitter users whose tweets in the requested range contained "smarthome", or who were replied to or mentioned in those tweets. The network was obtained from the NodeXL Graph Server on Saturday, 09 July 2022 at 03:37 UTC. The requested start date was Saturday, 09 July 2022 at 00:01 UTC and the maximum number of days (going backward) was 14. The maximum number of tweets collected was 7,500. The tweets in the network were tweeted over the 12-day, 18-hour, 32-minute period from Saturday, 25 June 2022 at 00:06 UTC to Thursday, 07 July 2022 at 18:39 UTC.


How do you define IoT and Industry 4.0? - ISA

#artificialintelligence

Conferences, media, vendors, automation industry consultants, business consultants, and even politicians are discussing and making presentations about how the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0 are creating a revolution in manufacturing. I am convinced we are at a juncture of major industrial automation changes driven by technology advancements. The digital revolution of business functions, including accounting, supply chain, human resources, procurement, customer services, business intelligence, and distribution management, has been refined over multiple generations. In contrast, the industrial and process automation industries have not transformed at the same rate. They must be digitized now for manufacturers to compete. At the end of this article I have the results of a small survey of readers that may be interesting.


The four stages of IoT development: How we get to a fully automated world

#artificialintelligence

The Internet of Things, or IoT, plays a huge part in automating the world. IoT refers to how different devices are connected via the web and are able influence their surroundings. Now, these devices are increasingly starting to be able to make decisions by themselves. Driverless cars, self-operating factories and automatic health advice from fitness trackers are just three examples of how autonomous connected devices can transform society. The business implications of these innovations are huge.


Three opportunities of Digital Transformation: AI, IoT and Blockchain

#artificialintelligence

Koomey's law This law posits that the energy efficiency of computation doubles roughly every one-and-a-half years (see Figure 1–7). In other words, the energy necessary for the same amount of computation halves in that time span. To visualize the exponential impact this has, consider the face that a fully charged MacBook Air, when applying the energy efficiency of computation of 1992, would completely drain its battery in a mere 1.5 seconds. According to Koomey's law, the energy requirements for computation in embedded devices is shrinking to the point that harvesting the required energy from ambient sources like solar power and thermal energy should suffice to power the computation necessary in many applications. Metcalfe's law This law has nothing to do with chips, but all to do with connectivity. Formulated by Robert Metcalfe as he invented Ethernet, the law essentially states that the value of a network increases exponentially with regard to the number of its nodes (see Figure 1–8).
