When we look around, there is a very pertinent question that comes up. Where can the IoT revolution make a massive change? The number of companies that are launching or close to launching devices have grown exponentially.
While those who are completely absorbed in the now may miss the radical changes, we track the small steps today that will bring in a huge change in all our lives in the near future. Here’s a look at industries that are poised for massive upgrades.
We are on the upward turn of the curve here. Simple tools have started the change. Smart thermometers, diagnostic units as wearables, change tracking algorithms that predict an illness. For nations, sensors and trackers provide real insights into how our groups behave and react to diseases and epidemics. With devices proliferating, it would only be fair to say the first diagnostic level will in all probability be virtual. At the other end of the spectrum treatment can also be automated.
The difference that big data is making is awe-inspiring. Huge savings in man-hours, massive advances in customising learning patterns and delivery to the user at their pace – this is the future of learning.
In classrooms, devices become the educators’ aid, monitoring individually and matching every students pace with the right input. Move the device out and it takes the user to remote learning. Often with devices that are linked the learning becomes two-way.
It is in this segment of massive numbers that the effects are immediately visible. Public domain data and designs allow for innovators to develop with shorter cycles. By empowering the average farmer with high tech, the quality of life moves up a notch right from the bottom of the chain. It becomes top up.
Advanced weather and warning systems work closely with smartphones. Companies are looking to bring last mile connectivity with novel concepts.
The change has already swept through other industries. Driver-less cars are making huge strides in bettering safety. Drones and Hyperloops are being manufactured that will soon change the way we travel. Our houses have started getting smarter and more efficient. Our city systems are mirroring our habits. This change seems to have no borders or boundaries.
Where do you see the most radical changes happening?
