Why AIoT Is Emerging As The Future Of Industry 4.0
Two trends that are dominating the technology industry are the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). But for industrial automation, these two technologies are much more than the buzzwords or trending topics. The convergence of AI and IoT will redefine the future of industrial automation. It is set to lead the Industry 4.0 revolution.
Why AI and IoT Will Play a Big Role in Retail of Tomorrow
The pandemic has left irreversible changes within the retail industry as consumer behavior during a time of limited and regulated movement evolved. A PYMNTS 2020 Remote Payments Study reported that mobile devices are the most popular device for online shopping, with up to 72% of consumers using their mobile devices to shop.
The Internet of Things in Action
This is a view shared by Forrester.

The 7 Best Internet of Things Stocks for a Connected Future
The internet of things involves the use of devices and sensors to send data across a network. This allows for benefits like predictive maintenance, the use of artificial intelligence, and the leveraging of remote medicine. And so what about the internet of things stocks? Well, there is a variety available. But before looking at them, let’s consider some of the trends in the industry.
Amazon's Ring Drone Camera Sets a Bad Precedent for Privacy
Ring's Always Home Cam doesn't offer nearly enough convenience to justify its risks to privacy. The trade-off at the core of most privacy debates pits convenience against access to your data. The idea is, the more data you let a tech giant access, the better they can help you: Google's services, from Search to Gmail to Google Maps, are prime examples of this trade-off at work. Google says it can serve up results, from ads to restaurant recommendations, informed in part by what it knows about your preferences.
The Top Internet of Things (IoT) Authentication Methods and Options
IoT authentication is a model for building trust in the identity of IoT machines and devices to protect data and control access when information travels via an unsecured network such as the Internet.
Strong IoT authentication is needed so that connected IoT devices and machines can be trusted to protect against control commands from unauthorized users or devices.
Blockchain: The Underlying Architecture of Secure IoT Solutions
With an avalanche of data privacy scandals unfolding in the past few years, such as those involving Cambridge Analytica, Apple, and, most recently, Avast, the question of personal data management and security is up in the air. The proliferation of consumer IoT devices complicates things even further, with more and more unprotected data up for grabs. When it comes to all this data, blockchain developers are faced with two issues: data privacy and data transparency.
SAP BrandVoice: Learn How Internet Of Things Is Transforming The Fight Against Climate Change
It was at the 21st Conference of Parties (COP21), when history was made as nearly the entire world signed the landmark Paris Climate Agreement to counter climate change. Since that 2015 agreement, COP21 has been the most significant business-focused event driving sustainable development and advancing the “green economy.”
This IoT Play Is Getting Hot Once Again
As a pure-play IoT company, Sierra looked all set to switch into a higher gear in 2017 as it struck partnerships with notable companies such as Volkswagen. The chipmaker turned in a mixed performance in 2018 before it lost its way last year -- reporting a double-digit revenue drop in 2019 as it tried to cut costs and transform the business model.
IoT + AI = Divine Healthcare Pair for helping Elderly
The human body grows old — dammit! As we age our bodies becomes a host to several diseases and inabilities. It’s like the reverse cycle of a young-one growing up that executes in the opposite direction. Here’s how AI and IoT in healthcare can help dementia patients.
What Is The Artificial Intelligence Of Things?
IoT devices use the internet to communicate, collect, and exchange information about our online activities. Every day, they generate 1 billion GB of data! That’s a lot.
AIoT: When Artificial Intelligence Meets the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a technology helping us to reimagine daily life, but artificial intelligence (AI) is the real driving force behind the IoT’s full potential.
From its most basic applications of tracking our fitness levels, to its wide-reaching potential across industries and urban planning, the growing partnership between AI and the IoT means that a smarter future could occur sooner than we think.
