The Era of the ‘Internet of Things’

We are living in a time of remarkable technological transformations. From automation in just about every industry streamlining everything, artificial intelligence becoming capable of doing just about any task and the internet becoming an integral part of all walks of life; it truly is a great and exciting time to be alive.

Though perhaps one of the most impressive changes of late has been the gradual and powerful development of ‘The Internet of Things’, which is slowly but surely integrating itself into all aspects of our lives.

What is the Internet of Things (IoT)?

The Internet of Things is not such an easy concept to define since it encompasses quite a broad spectrum of ideas and processes.

At its core, IoT basically describes a number of interrelated systems that could be objects, devices (both mechanical and digital) and even animals and people that are able to, in one way or another, transfer data over a network in an autonomous fashion.

This is how fridges can make online food orders, how homes and offices can be automated, how security systems relay information back to the security company, or even how warehouses track the movements of stored and retrieved goods.

How can This Transform Our World?

IoT technology has been changing the way we live, work and interact with the world around us for some time:

Living

Homes are becoming automated power-houses with automatic lighting systems, appliances that can take calls, surf the web or make orders for groceries for you. Without IoT, the sought-after smart-home would be an impossibility.

Working

Automation is a word thrown around a lot these days in just about every industry. Thanks to IoT, this automation has become possible on multiple levels from production and team management to finances, billing and sales.

Learning

IoT has done a lot to enhance learning and teaching methods, particularly in higher learning, but it is not limited to there. Cloud computing and data collection for student performance has been largely enhanced by these systems, and there are still, undoubtedly, more changes to come.
