Dan Patterson recently wrote in TechRepublic, “The future of cities will be smaller, wired, and very chatty, said Google’s Chief Internet Evangelist Vint Cerf on Wednesday at a panel discussion on the Internet of Things #ReducingCyberRisk at NYU’s Brooklyn-Based PolyTechnic School of Engineering. Other panelists included Deborah Estrin, Professor Computer Science at Cornell Tech, and Beth Simone Noveck, Global Network Professor at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. The group deciphered and interpreted some of the technical challenges related to posed by potentially billions of connected devices. ‘We don’t know how to write software without bugs,’ joked Cerf, ‘we’ve been trying for 70 years’.”

LIVING IN A SMARTER WORLD: WHY USE AI-ENABLED IOT IN HEALTHCARE

Article | March 12, 2020

Artificial Intelligence and Internet of things are hot topics now, as a consequence, integrating AI into IoT is becoming a common practice. The healthcare system is everybody’s business, so finding one's way around is equally important for all. Yet, keeping all the details in mind is no easy task. There are limits to human mental and physical performance. Thus going beyond one’s maximum has to be relegated to such technologies as the Internet of things and Artificial Intelligence. The implementation of innovative solutions in healthcare is always a good idea and IoT together with AI are strong drivers of the digital transformation regardless of what field the technologies are applied in. Municipal infrastructure, smart homes, retailing, manufacturing, supply chain, education, healthcare and life sciences — the entire digital ecosystem, an IoT ecosystem of connected devices, has been created and is growing stronger with each passing day. Empowered with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, among other things, IoT is used as a means of equipping people with intelligent assistance. Gradually, it is taking over both minor and major processes in a number of industries. Healthcare is no exception.

Practical AI – A Serious Issue for Industrial IoT

Article | March 12, 2020

While the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is maturing rapidly, there’s often a strong link to Artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) tools to manage data flows. This raises a host of challenges including connectivity, security, storage and modeling requirements. Designers of IIoT devices and larger deployments must build in contingencies for shifts in these areas or risk falling short. While IIoT is gaining in maturity, the overall market still has many challenges to overcome. Some of these challenges are technical barriers to IoT device operation, such as connectivity standards and battery technology, but the picture is even wider than that. The world of IIoT not only requires IoT hardware to operate reliably and efficiently in all environments but also relies on supporting networks and services too. The result is that IIoT deployments cannot be viewed as isolated technology upgrades or productivity drives, but highly interconnected ecosystems sensitive to a wide range of variables – in particular the developing world of AI.

The IoT Smarthome Battlefield: A Jointly Endorsed IoT Standard for the Home Area Network

Article | March 12, 2020

Google announced that together with Amazon and Apple (the big 3 smart home players) they will work on the adoption of a joint wireless IoT standard for the smart home. This new connectivity standard is designed to make it easier for smart home products to work with each other.In the statement, Google said they were “joining Amazon, Apple and others to create Connected Home over IP, a new independent working group managed by the Zigbee Alliance (separate from the existing Zigbee 3.0/Pro protocol). We’re contributing two of our market-tested and open-source smart home technologies, Weave and Thread. Both are built on IP and have been integrated into millions of homes around the world.”
