Internet of Things

The “Internet of things” (IoT) is becoming an increasingly growing topic of conversation both in the workplace and outside of it. It’s a concept that not only has the potential to impact how we live but also how we work. But what exactly is the “Internet of things” and what impact is it going to have on you, if any? From hairbrushes to scales, consumer and industrial devices are having chips inserted into them to collect and communicate data. Smart toasters, connected rectal thermometers and fitness collars for dogs are just some of the everday “dumb items” being connected to the web as part of the so-called Internet of Things (IoT).

By combining these connected devices with automated systems, it is possible to “gather information, analyse it and create an action” to help someone with a particular task, or learn from a process. This SlideShare presents a summary of IoT and how Sakha Global can help.
