We invite you to check these two new IoT-related events in Eindhoven this autumn and get up-to-date with the latest smart society technology developments.
Enterprises are spending as much on the Internet of Things as on cloud, mobility and analytics, according to Vodafone’s annual research into the sector.
The operator’s 2016 IoT Barometer found that respondents are dedicating 24 percent of their IT budgets to the IoT.
This is slightly more than is being allocated to mobility (23 percent), cloud (23 percent) and analytics (22 percent).
The survey covered 1,096 people in 17 countries across nine industry verticals. Continue reading “2016 is the year the Internet of Things entered the mainstream”
Artificial intelligence is coming – so how’s it going to change our reality?
In March of this year, Google’s artificial intelligence, AlphaGo, beat one of the top human intelligences, Lee Sedol, at the strategically mind-boggling board game Go. Continue reading “How is Artificial Intelligence going to change our reality? (Video)”
You loved 3G and eventually migrated to 4G, but does 5G get you excited? It probably doesn’t. After all, who needs to send a SnapChat, a tweet, an SMS or an email any faster than is already possible? Continue reading “5G & IoT: How ultra-fast networks will change the Internet of Things”
Smaller, cheaper microprocessors. The rise of automation. Widespread wireless communications. Over the past two decades, the convergence of these trends has created the much-ballyhooed Internet of Things (IoT). And now it is ready for prime time.

After a half-decade of quiet breakthroughs in artificial intelligence, 2015 has been a landmark year. Computers are smarter and learning faster than ever.
The pace of advancement in AI is “actually speeding up,” said Jeff Dean, a senior fellow at Google. To celebrate their achievements and plot the year ahead, Dean and many of the other top minds in AI are convening in Montreal this week at the Neural Information Processing Systems conference.

In 2008, there were already more things connected to the Internet than people—and yet, the market for connected devices is only expanding. In fact, the number of Internet-connected devices is expected to exceed 50 billion by the year 2020, generating as much as $19 trillion in profits in the next 10 years. The projected growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) hints at a future that was previously unimaginable, in which every “thing”—from your car to your stove to your thermostat—is connected.

Artificial intelligence techniques have been used for years, and lately there has been an explosion in their applications. As a matter of fact, in a recent Q3 earnings call, Google CEO Sundar Pichai claimed that artificial intelligence is a core, transformative way through which society is re-thinking just how everything is done. Continue reading “Artificial Intelligence is everywhere and is not going to take over businesses”
Internet of Things initiatives demand targeted strategies to combat the influx of new cyber risks that will invariably accompany them. Companies across all industries can learn from some of the lessons already learned by technology, media, and telecom companies. Continue reading “IoT Needs Targeted Strategies to Combat Influx of New Cyber Risks”
Almost everyone has faced the maddening thought that they are miles from home but not sure whether they turned off the space heater or some other appliance.
A person might even drive back home to make sure the thing is turned off. Well, as the Internet of Things takes hold, that is at least one aggravation that may become history, because a smartphone app will be able to display whether that heater is on, and allow the user to turn it off — remotely — if it is. Continue reading “Internet of Things is already here, but how close is it?”
