Every few months I try and do an industry vertical focused issue. This week it's all about Healthcare at IoT Weekly News! If your interests are elsewhere, fear not as I've also sprinkled in some predictions for IoT in 2017, a story on Apple and also why you should be looking at the Raspberry Pi Zero W.
If you are in the Twin Cities, you definitely want to make it out to our IoT Fuse Healthcare Meetup on May 18th. The event is free, but space is limited, so signup today!
I hope you enjoy this issue and remember to follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook!
2017 Predictions for Big Data, IoT, and AI
There’s no doubt that there are currently three big trends in business models: Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data and artificial intelligence (AI). From the still-fragmented internet of things to rapid fluctuations in computing paradigms to how AI is reshaping how we live, everybody’s talking about these trends but what’s really going on?
9 Facts You Didn't Know About the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things is officially a Big Deal. You know the story: Machine-to-machine networking is poised to unlock $19 trillion of economic opportunity over the next decade, and companies are lining up to claim a slice of that enormous pie.
But you don't know the whole story. I mean, nobody does.
Lab 651 connects the physical world to the digital universe. We have teams of Software, Embedded and Mechanical Engineers with each founding partner developing connected devices and systems for more than 20 years. Come check us out, meet our teams and take a tour of our lab to learn what connected ( IoT ) products we can build for you!
Network Connectivity, Storage Challenge Healthcare IoT Push
As organizations adopt the healthcare IoT, significant infrastructure considerations such as network connection and storage need to be addressed.
Why The Cloud And Internet Of Things Don't Always Mix
As a direct quote from the article, "Cloud makes possible the Internet of Things, that global assortment of connected devices, sensors and systems. The cloud supports analytics and processing of all the data streaming in from the "things." However, some industry observers question whether cloud makes it all more expensive and complicated than need be."
The Rise and Risk of IoT in Healthcare
Standards and practices will evolve, and until then it’s important to apply currently available standards and good old common sense. Don’t forget that compliance doesn’t equal security. But most importantly, be thoughtful and diligent – your patients are depending on it.
Execs Agree: IoT Will Disrupt Healthcare in next 3 Years
A large consulting firm finds 73 percent of healthcare execs say the Internet of Things is poised to upend industry, but only 49 percent think their organization’s leaders understand what it could mean.
The Looming Threat of Health Care IoT
A complete inventory of all IoT devices must become part of an overarching security risk assessment. You cannot manage or control what you don’t know exists. Only an assessment can yield this kind of information, with details on each device.
How Hospitals Can Help Ensure the Security of IoT Devices
As internet-connected medical devices become more pervasive, enabling innovative care and remote monitoring of patients, cyber criminals are finding new ways to breach hospital networks through advanced malware.
Even Apple Can't Make the Internet of Things Tolerable
If you want to start an absolutely thrilling dinner table conversation with friends, try asking them what Internet of Things platform they’re using. Unsurprisingly, not many people know what IoT means, let alone what’s going on beneath their gadgets. All they care about is whether they work together or not — and most of the time they don’t.
Cloud and the IoT in Practice
Finding a solid IoT integration partner such as our sponsor, Lab 651 is key when building solutions. As quoted from the article, "Healthcare is a growing industry which is benefiting from the ability to monitor remote devices... thinking about how to build your own team of IoT experts along with buying and configuring the infrastructure required to support it, in addition to the inescapable issues mentioned above is probably enough to give any CIO conniptions."
The Raspberry Pi Zero W Is Your Key to the Hackable Future
Raspberry Pi offers far more accessibility than the TRS-80, Commodore 64, and early Apple and PC machines his generation worked with. But he hopes the bare bones computer he developed five years ago encourages a younger generation to discover how computers, smartphones and connected devices actually work.
