Internet of Things (IoT)
What is IoT?
The term Internet of Things (IoT) highlights the ability to transfer data without human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction on the Internet. Traditionally data on the Internet is dependent on human interactions.
Why does is IoT matter?
The concept of IoT is to combine traditional IT components with intelligent systems to improve efficiency and productivity. IoT includes hardware, software, and connectivity. Examples of devices that are connect to IoT include ATMs and RFID tags. New methods are designed to track physical locations and user interaction with their data. This data can then be used to track, count, reduce waste, loss, and cost. IoT can be embedded through limited CPU processing power, network devices, memory, and power. Hence the integration of IoT in diverse fields. IoT can be used in fields of environmental monitoring, industrial applications, energy management, and etc. However, with the positives we should be aware of Cybersecurity. Privacy and the illegal use of personal information should be considered as IoT matures.
