The Internet of Things: Dr. John Barrett at TEDxCIT [video]

Posted by Gerry Poe



The new lingo is "The Internet of Things" aka IoT., may have you believing that you know most of what you need. The Internet is now integrated into your life and business in such a way that "The Internet of Things: appears to be 'obvious''.

Here is a quick summary of IoT:

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a scenario in which objects, animals or people are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. IoT has evolved from the convergence of wireless technologies, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and the Internet.

By 2020, there will be 50 billion devices connected to the Internet. 

For a quick understanding of IoT, Jonathan Strickland takes us on a tour through a living room of the future to see how this "Internet of Things" (IOT) will impact our daily lives.

If  what Jonothan has you interested in learning more, here is D.r John Barrett at TEDx CIT to give you a much more in depth view of the Internet of Things:

About TEDx:  In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

The world is silently shifting. We are here to help you take advantage of the new opportunities.
