In August, while in some random hotel room for business travel, I happened to have Jon Stewart on. (What will we do without him?) Stewart was interviewing MIT Media Lab instructor David Rose regarding Rose’s book, Enchanted Objects, which discusses using the Internet to connect machines. It was an hysterical encounter (see it here on The Daily Show website) that only Stewart could pull off, but it also made me take notice. I have worked in technology for many years and had heard of discreet applications employing machine-to-machine communication enabled by the Internet, but I wasn’t exactly excited about the concept. I suppose it was Rose’s anecdote about a bathroom scale that can tweet your latest diet results that got me thinking, “Hey, maybe this Internet of Things has legs." To break IoT down to the simplest of definitions, it is machines or objects (don’t limit your thinking to inanimate objects, either) communicating over the Internet without any humans involved in the transmission.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has existed in the public consciousness for decades. The (mostly) sentient machines playing the villains in Hollywood movies have never been realistic depictions of the technology, but they have left an impression, nonetheless. AI has proved as exciting to the layman as it is to the expert. Usually based in remote data centers, AI is capable of collecting and examining immense volumes of data, generating insights based on analytical algorithms. With varying degrees of autonomy, these capabilities have been put to use streamlining decision-making processes. While AI is often thought of as a product in its own right, it is increasingly intersecting with other parallel trends. Chief among these is the Internet of things (IoT), which enables previously isolated machines to “talk” to one another and, at the same time, generate data that makes new modes of operation a possibility.
