Technologies such as 5G, IoT sensors and platforms, edge computing, AI and analytics, robotics, blockchain, additive manufacturing and virtual/augmented reality are coalescing into a fertile environment for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), which is set to usher in what's often described as the Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0. Here's how analyst firm IoT Analytics sees the relationship between the broader IoT and the IIoT/Industry 4.0 sector: This ebook, based on the latest ZDNet / TechRepublic special feature, explores how infrastructure around the world is being linked together via sensors, machine learning and analytics. In this brave new world, supply chains will have end-to-end transparency thanks to sensors, data networks and analytics capabilities at key points. All other things (trade barriers, for example) being equal, parts and raw materials will arrive just in time at highly automated factories, and the fate of the resulting products will be tracked throughout their lifetimes to eventual recycling. Similarly, 'smart farms' will combine emerging IIoT-related technologies into integrated high-resolution crop production systems based on robotics, big data and analytics.
A house capable of taking on its own life is one way to visualize the concept of smart homes. This living home would tend to your needs and preferences by computation of complex algorithms. An automated house has wide ranging implications. Whether it's aiding in extraneous chores or figuring out solutions for home-security, smart homes offer owners the ability to focus on other high-priority life tasks with less concerns. A smart home that is driven by artificial intelligence continues to push technological boundaries -- here is ONE Tech's look at the 3 biggest elements of successful AI-integrated homes.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is both a disruptive and transformative technology concept, with an estimated 8.4 billion devices getting connected by end-2017, according to research firm Gartner Inc. McKinsey Global Institute pegs IoT's potential economic impact between $3.9 trillion and $11.1 trillion a year by 2025. While manufacturing, transport and logistics, and supply chain industries are already beginning to realize this value, other segments such as public services, retail, consumer products, healthcare and others are expected to follow suit.

However, ReportLinker found that few respondents – just 9% – say they use such hubs. This could change, however, if it becomes more convenient to control home devices from your smartphone. Both Google and Apple have developed all-in-one apps that enable consumers to operate multiple smart devices right from a single app on a smartphone or tablet.
We're surrounded by more and more connected devices we're calling the Internet of Things. We can turn our heating on from our phones on the commute home. Pegs can tell us when to bring the washing in so it doesn't get wet. Cars know the hazards ahead and warn us before we get there so that we can avoid them. Many of the'things' have been manufactured within the'Industrial Internet of Things' or'Industry 4.0'.

I'm pleased to announce that the IBM Watson IoT Platform now has the ability to add Internet of Things (IoT) data, to Blockchain transactions. Leveraging blockchain for your IoT data opens up new ways of automating business processes amongst your partners without setting up an expensive centralized IT infrastructure. This gives you the potential to improve business networks, reduce costs, increase trust and open up new markets. A solution brief provides an overview of the capabilities and use cases being announced. The new features within the Watson IoT Platform are available through two new Lab Services Offerings.
Technology has been fundamentally reshaping every aspect of our life. From the onset of 21st-century, technology has not left a single prospect of our life untouched. From industries to medical technology, applied science has picked pace towards an era of automation. The next big step in mankind is the evolution of "Internet of Things". Internet of things is built on the intelligence of multiple sensors and connected devices that collect data and make crucial decisions.
