Artificial Intelligence–Enabled Automation and Cybersecurity for Smart Meters


With the enforcement of carbon abatement policies and push for zero emissions and reduced carbon footprint, network operators are increasingly looking to take data from their energy assets and use algorithms and intelligent modelling to enhance their insight and decision making. "In Asia/Pacific, similar to the global landscape, IDC is seeing more requirements for automation and, in effect, security at endpoints as utilities look to remotely diagnose and debug issues, gather critical consumption insights, and make their systems more energy-efficient, smart, and secure," says Shaily Shah, research manager, IDC Asia/Pacific.

10 Predictions about the Internet of Things for future


The online landscape is burgeoning. It is not just about computers, notebooks, tablet computers, and tablets. Presently a great number of apparatus are internet-connected. The listing of "smart" apparatus comprises washing machines, robotic vacuum cleaners, door locks, toys, and even toasters. The Internet of Things is the umbrella word -- and, yes, now you can purchase a wide umbrella -- for whatever connects to the web.

Tomorrow's Smart Cities - Data Aided Design


You are sitting alone in a moving vehicle crossing the main square, it is a warm day, and the vehicle is silent. It speeds quickly on the wide street. An automated voice speaks: – According to the average data, your pulse has an irregular rate. Your body temperature is higher than normal; it is advised you book a doctor's appointment. I will remind you 30 minutes before. Imagine a city built for people to live more connected, where AI can help us in our daily life and check our health status.

Connected cars: How 5G and IoT will affect the auto industry


This ebook, based on the latest ZDNet / TechRepublic special feature, examines how 5G connectivity will underpin the next generation of IoT devices. Autonomous cars (and other vehicles, such as trucks) may still be years away from widespread deployment, but connected cars are very much with us. The modern automobile is fast becoming a sensor-laden mobile Internet of Things device, with considerable on-board computing power and communication systems devoted to three broad areas: vehicle location, driver behaviour, engine diagnostics and vehicle activity (telematics); the surrounding environment (vehicle-to-everything or V2X communication); and the vehicle's occupants (infotainment). All of these systems use cellular -- and increasingly 5G -- technology, among others. Although 5G networks are still a work in progress for mobile operators, the pace of deployment and launches is picking up.

3 Ways the IoT Will Change Healthcare


The Internet of Things is expanding fast, and the amount of data generated by connected devices is growing exponentially every day. While it might be impossible to comprehend just how much data is being created by the world's smartphones, sensors, and other electronics, if your work involves artificial intelligence, it's not hard to spot the opportunities on the horizon. The growing prevalence of edge devices -- essentially any device that has a direct connection to the internet -- along with the relatively recent emergence of 5G networks has created new use cases for AI that could transform entire industries. Healthcare organizations, in particular, stand to benefit from this trend convergence in a variety of exciting ways. Before exploring some of the ways these technologies could impact healthcare, let's talk about why recent advances are so compelling to AI developers.

How You can use IoT to Enhance Your Business Operations


IoT is developing as more smart devices, from light bulbs to vacuums, give us more control and automation capabilities. IoT can be a high benefit to all kinds of business operations. If you want your agency to enjoy the advantages of IoT, you'll be well on your way by reviewing our tips below. One of the most significant advantages of IoT is it can boost the energy efficiency of most companies, from FedEx delivery route businesses to those that sell baby clothes. The marketplace for smart houses and company thermostats is anticipated to grow by 20% within the upcoming several decades. Being in a position to track the usage of electricity at commercial construction and tweak light, water, use, and temperature may lower energy waste.

The 5 Biggest Internet Of Things (IoT) Trends In 2021 Everyone Must Get Ready For Now


The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most prominent tech trends to have emerged in recent years. In simple terms, it refers to the fact that while the word "internet" initially referred to the wide-scale networking of computers, today, devices of every size and shape – from cars to kitchen appliances to industrial machinery - are connected and sharing information digitally, on a global scale. As with every aspect of our lives, the global coronavirus pandemic has undoubtedly affected the way this trend is developing and impacting our lives. In a world where contact between humans is, for now, more limited, contact between devices, tools, and toys can help us to remain connected. So, here's my look ahead to 2021 and some of the ways we can expect to see this megatrend playing out, and playing an increasingly large role in how we live, work, and play.

5 Emerging Trends for Smart Application IoT Devices for Homes


The old telephones were upgraded until they became portable devices, and later they turned into the smartphones everyone uses nowadays. Computers were also created, and they offered people a series of new activities, whether it's keeping in touch through social media, playing games, or watching movies. That's how artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the Internet of Things took over people's lives and improved them through smarter technologies and devices. Smart applications truly made our lives more convenient and gave us many options. Alexa, for instance, only needs a few commands and it can set up the lighting you prefer, turn on the music you like, and so on.

Armv9 is Arm's first major architectural update in a decade


Arm, the leader in chips used in everything from mobile devices to supercomputers, has unveiled Armv9, the company's first major architectural change in a decade. The new designs should result in 30% faster performance over the next two chip generations. Arm is a chip architecture company that licenses its designs to others, and its customers have shipped more than 100 billion chips in the past five years. Nvidia is in the midst of acquiring Cambridge, United Kingdom-based Arm for $40 billion, but the deal is waiting on regulatory approvals.
