Experts predict that the number of connected devices, Internet of Things (IoT), will be around 38.5 billion by 2025. To make them work will be self-learning algorithms, and predictive calculation engines.
All this without the slightest need for a relationship with man. It will only need a little energy to work 24 hours a day.
First, I want to explain what I’m talking about. This is another technology that is traveling at the speed of light and not everyone knows what it is yet.
Between the Metaverse, the IoT, cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and Web 3.0 … do you think we can’t keep up with all the innovations of technology too? But how fast does it run?
WHAT IS THE INTERNET OF THINGS?
The Internet of Things, also known by the acronym IoT, is a concept that indicates the possibility of interconnecting all the objects in our life thanks to the use of the Internet.
In other words, the IoT represents the technology that allows machines to communicate with each other and exchange data automatically and continuously.
Thanks to the IoT, the various devices are able to interact with each other and exchange data automatically, without the need for any human interaction.
The IoT is an extended network that connects all types of devices (household appliances, cars, industrial plants, etc.) so that they can exchange information and be remotely controlled.
Thanks to the use of IoT technology it is possible to collect and analyze a large amount of data that can be used to optimize business processes.
But to understand what it is, it is important to take a step back and understand what the Internet is.
In short, we can say that it is a set of computers and devices connected together in order to exchange data and information.
Thanks to the Internet, it is possible to connect devices such as smartphones, tablets, computers, industrial machines, and much more.
But what if the ability to interact with each other automatically is added to these devices?
This is the IoT.
Thanks to the use of this technology, it is as if objects take on a soul. Wait though. If by any chance you are thinking that I am saying that those objects will be able to think and create, I am not.
But with the IoT they have the ability to make sense of their use by storing data and transmitting them to other objects. This creates a technological ecosystem in its own right.
A little creepy but it will be the harsh reality. If you then add to all of this: artificial intelligence, and what robots are able to do today, you understand what to expect in the future.
IN WHICH DEVICES WILL WE FIND THIS TECHNOLOGY?
First of all, I want to clarify that the IoT does not only concern everyday objects such as household appliances or cars.
It is a technology that is also used in the industrial sector. Think of the automatic features in factories, assembly lines, and quality control.
Medicine is also a field in which IoT has found application thanks to the possibility of remotely monitoring patients.
But it doesn’t stop there. More and more objects are equipped with this technology. More specifically, we are talking about:
– Intelligent thermostats;
– Coffee machines and other household appliances;
– Connected vehicles (cars, motorcycles, bicycles);
– Water and light meters;
– Anti-intrusion alarm systems;
– Environmental sensors;
– Medical devices (such as wristbands that monitor the heartbeat).
These are just a few examples. But the list goes on and on. Just think of all the objects that, thanks to IoT technology, will be able to communicate with each other and collect data.
IMAGINE A FUTURE IN WHICH …
Experts predict that, in 2025, there will be active 38.5 billion devices connected to the Internet. A truly impressive number.
The value of the IoT market is estimated to reach $1.4 trillion by 2027.
It is interesting to note that IoT is a technology that is already changing the way we live and work. Think about home automation, a field in which the IoT has found a wide application.
Home automation is the set of technologies that allow you to automate the various functions of the house (such as lighting, heating, security, etc.) to make them more comfortable and functional.
Thanks to home automation, therefore, it is possible to control the systems of your home remotely thanks to a simple smartphone or tablet.
MAYBE WE WILL FEEL OBSERVED
So far the IoT makes our life easier and saves us time, energy and money.
But it’s also true that this technology raises some serious privacy and security questions.
In fact, if on the one hand it is true that IoT makes our life easier, on the other it is equally true that it puts our privacy and our sensitive data at risk.
Think of all the data that is collected from connected objects. Data that, if not adequately protected, could end up in the wrong hands.
It is also important to consider the risk of hacking. Think industrial plants or medical systems. If they are hacked, it could disastrous.
For this reason, it is important to be careful and choose reliable and safe technological solutions.
These are some of the main issues raised. Issues that undoubtedly deserve further investigation.
Before I leave you, I still want to tell you something. IoT is a technology that is changing the way we live and work. There is nothing wrong with that.
We must embrace this change and make the most of it to make our life simpler and more functional.
This is what some of the brightest minds on our planet think:
“The Internet of Things is not a fad. It is a revolution that is already changing the way we live, work, and play.”
– Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google
“The Internet of Things is a revolution that will transform the world as we know it. More than any other technology before it.”
– Kevin Ashton, co-founder of the MIT Auto-ID Center
“The Internet of Things will be a system of billions of devices in operation independent of human relationships.”
– Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft
According to a recent Gartner report, 8.4 billion devices were activated in 2019.
This is a growing number compared to the previous year, when 7.6 billion devices were activated.
An unprecedented growing trend:
In 2020, in fact, it is estimated that 11.6 billion devices connected to the Internet will be activated.
