The final blog post for #digc202!
This week we looked at the Internet of Things (IoT) commonly known as increased machine-to-machine communication. (Think the iCloud as a way of connecting and controlling devices but bigger!) Its making machines “smart.”
That being said many people think about creating the next machine, when in actual fact we should be looking at the way that machines gather data, analyses and distributes between other connected machines. This is where the ‘cloud’ comes into play. The IoT’s cant function without a cloud component which analyses and leverages data. ‘The cloud is what enables the apps to go to work for you anytime, anywhere’ states wired.
Safe to say making technology ‘smart’ is a huge shift, whether in the right direction or not (as argued by many) its happening and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. New generations now don’t know a world without technology, this impact alone is enough to change the way that innovative minds are now implementing and conducting problems associated with technology.
