Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the trends that has been credited with great potential for several years, but has not been widely accepted so far.
In order to properly assess the potential of the IoT, the IoT should be considered in close connection with development in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Because only an intelligent evaluation and control of data processes through the use of AI helps the networking of things to a meaningful use.
The networked things deliver data on an unprecedented scale. These data play an important role in two ways. On the one hand, collecting the data serves to make certain things more intelligent than they were previously in their non-networked state. In one form or another, all IoT devices perform real-time analytics and sense their environment. On the other hand, data and data analytics play a key role in the success of IoT from the perspective of the companies that make networked products. By analyzing usage data, companies need to learn how their products are actually used and how they can be improved. By using deep learning or machine learning, patterns can be identified and analyzed that help to better understand the use of IoT products and to better control the associated processes.
