IoT developers to focus more on smart healthcare post-COVID-19

Article | April 2, 2020

Healthcare technologies will be a greater priority among IoT service providers once the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 die down, according to Forrester Research. Based on its latest figures, only 7% of the work that major IoT service providers deliver in APAC is on Smart Healthcare. The crisis has triggered a lot of ideas and solutions, however there was simply no time to look at a more strategic approach for both the technologies and the processes. This will be the focus of governments, health care providers, and others, once the acute crisis is behind us,” said Achim Granzen, principal analyst at Forrester, told FutureIoT. He added: “I expect this number to increase past Covid-19, as governments, healthcare providers, and others will seek to harden many of the ad-hoc systems and measures they have put into place during the crisis.”

THE FUTURE OF BIOMETRICS IOT

Article | April 2, 2020

In 2018 when Apple unveiled its iconic iPhone X with a feature to unlock the phone with Face ID thereby eliminating the use of the home button, it met a lot of eye-rolls. Fast forward to now, people are in love with the biometrics enabled technologies. While iPhone X had a unimodal authentication system, gadget these days have updated themselves in a better way. Let’s try to have a better understanding of the Biometrics. Biometrics are a way to measure a person’s physical characteristics to verify their identity. It can be physiological traits, like fingerprints and eyes, or behavioral traits, that define the manner an individual respond to stimuli. These characteristics are unique to the person. Once collected the data compared with the pre-existing database to find a match. Accordingly, it then produces an outcome. There are many varieties in which this data is collected. Facial and voice recognition, iris and finger scanner, signature verification, hand geometry, keystroke, gait detectors are some of the examples.
