Monetizing the Internet of Things (IoT) has been a hot topic during 2015. And as the conversation about IoT monetization has developed, it has begun focusing on industry-specific solutions. IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin) 2015, which will focus on monetizing the IoT in the electronics industry, is particularly noteworthy in this regard.The significant players in electronics will be gathering at IFA—the largest consumer electronics show in the world—but IFA’s scope extends well beyond electronics into the worlds of mobile phone providers, mobile app companies and car companies, as well as just about any organization working in the IoT space. That much can be seen from a look at the IFA show floor, which sports a vast array of connected homes, connected cars, connected appliances and other connected products.

AI and IoT projects optimize industries inside and out

Article | March 11, 2020

When people think of AI, it's easy to jump to the many possible uses seen in movies -- such as accessing secret areas with biometric data or robots completing human jobs -- but applying AI realistically requires architects and administrators to understand just how flexible AI is in a business setting. Tech leaders have rapidly increased the number of AI and IoT projects in many areas of their businesses, including customer experience, data analysis and security. When organizations apply AI into these different aspects, they can more effectively process the IoT data they create and further improve their operations and products. Popular movies have made customer experience AI one of the better-known examples of AI. Ads may not be as flashy as the personally tailored ones using customer biometrics as seen in The Minority Report, but it's easy to see how organizations will get there from the online ads that use AI to give consumers offers specific to their interests. Businesses use AI that learns from data analytics on customer behavior throughout the IoT customer journey.

Hardware Threats to an IoT Ecosystem

Article | March 31, 2020

An IoT ecosystem, like any biome on Earth, is constantly subjected to changes and threats at various scales. Whether the system is an asset tracking solution in a hospital to help deliver more effective healthcare or cold chain management ensuring temperature control during transportation, the hardware/sensor is where the data journey commences in an IoT ecosystem. The integrity of these hardware components is paramount to the success of an IoT solution, but there are currently critical threat points on these devices which left unaddressed could be disastrous. Much of the focus of IoT security is on keeping the communicated data from IoT devices untampered up the solution stack. Methods like end-to-end AES encryption are currently standard by most network protocols and are well secured and tested.

The Internet Of Things is all over HVACR. Is the value there yet?

Article | March 23, 2020

AHR Expo used to be mostly a “mechanical engineering” event, and even in 2017, when I first got there, there were just a few companies who mentioned IoT or connectivity at their stands. Only the most prominent players in the HVACR industry presented their IoT solutions. In my conversations with companies at that time, no one was taking IoT very seriously. And it’s understandable, there already were Modbus, BacNet – well-defined protocols to connect machines to a PC or PLCs to make them work in unison without any Clouds and external access.

The Rise of the AIoT

Article | March 3, 2020

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.
