We’ve been thinking about the Internet of Things all wrong: AI and IoT are inseparable

We’ve been thinking about the Internet of Things all wrong.

  • Big data analytics for IOT software revenues will experience strong growth, reaching $81 billion by 2022 says Strategy Analytics
  • Smart Cities will use 1.6 billion connected things in 2016 says Gartner
  • By 2025 IOT will be a $1.6 trillion opportunity in Healthcare alone says McKinsey
  • 50 billion+ connected devices will exist by 2020 says Cisco
  • Data captured by IOT connected devices will top 1.6 zettabytes in 2020 says ABI Research

Numbers. Numbers. Numbers. Continue reading “We’ve been thinking about the Internet of Things all wrong: AI and IoT are inseparable”

As sensors shrink, watch as ‘wearables’ disappear

Forget “wearables,” and even “hearables.” The next big thing in mobile devices: “disappearables.” Even as the new Apple Watch piques consumer interest in wrist-worn devices, the pace of innovation and the tumbling cost, and size, of components will make wearables smaller – so small, some in the industry say, that no one will see them.
