How Big Data and IoT Are Connected

Article | April 1, 2020

Big data as a term and a field, has been around for some time. It relates to the ways in which we study, analyze and process data sets that are too large to be handled by traditional data-processing software. Data can be described as ‘big’ when it demonstrates the four ‘V’ qualities: veracity (accuracy), velocity (speed), volume (size) and variety (both structured and unstructured). IoT, on the other hand, came much later and relates to devices, data and marrying them together. This area looks at making devices ‘smart’ (anything from watches to kettles) and collecting data about their performance or usage to influence consumer behavior.

How AI and IoT Provide Value in Construction

Article | April 1, 2020

Internet of Things (IoT) sensors predominantly provide visibility to an operating stack – enabling access to real-time and accurate operational data. Laying analysis on top of that data produces dashboards and other visual representations but artificial intelligence (AI) extends this further by harnessing the data streams to train models and identify patterns. Observations can then be made by a computer much like a human analyst could but at tremendous speed and scale. AI makes it possible to anticipate and predict events in a robust and scalable way. This can create huge business advantages. In this article, we’ll look at applications of AI and IoT in construction.

Practical AI – A Serious Issue for Industrial IoT

Article | April 1, 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.

IoT Adoption: Before and After COVID-19

Article | April 1, 2020

The survey data I’m referring to comes from a study conducted by the Eclipse Foundation about the adoption of commercial Internet of Things (IoT) technology. The aim of the study was to get a better understanding of the IoT industry landscape by identifying the requirements, priorities, and challenges faced by organizations deploying and using commercial IoT technologies. More than 350 respondents from multiple industries responded, with about a quarter of respondents coming from industrial production businesses. While this survey was not solely focused on the manufacturing and processing industries, its results reflect the general business community’s IoT adoption at the end of 2019. As such, it is a pre-COVID-19 snapshot of IoT adoption.
