The Future of IoT: Trends, Growth & Megatrend Predictions

IBM Watson IoT - IoT Building Analytics. Buildings, even beautiful ones, are brainless—but the Internet of Things coupled with machine-learning systems like Watson promise to change all that.

IBM Watson IoT - IoT Building Analytics

Our buildings are gaining cognitive abilities that will allow them to learn to be better at whatever it is they are designed to do. So what kind of brain might your home or office building soon possess? Instead of nerves, there are myriad sensors deployed in walls, lights, heating and cooling equipment, even the faucet in a sink. Creating a structure’s consciousness is software that ties it all together. But these brains, like any brain really, don’t just blink on and immediately understand how to function in the world. Some buildings today are built from the ground up with nearly one IoT-enabled sensor per square foot—monitoring temperature, humidity, the weight in the trash cans, how many people are in a room, and on and on.

The savings can get as granular as desks. On Flipboard. How blockchain can change the future of IoT. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a fast-growing industry destined to transform homes, cities, farms, factories, and practically everything else by making them smart and more efficient.

How blockchain can change the future of IoT

According to Gartner, by 2020, there will be more than 20 billion connected things across the globe, powering a market that will be worth north of $3 trillion. But the chaotic growth of IoT will introduce several challenges, including identifying, connecting, securing, and managing so many devices. It will be very challenging for the current infrastructure and architecture underlying the Internet and online services to support huge IoT ecosystems of the future. This is something that can perhaps be solved through blockchain, the distributed ledger technology behind cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, which is proving its worth in many other industries, including IoT.

Most of us probably don’t see much of it yet. OK, so we have a smartphone but what other smart things do you have? Maybe if you’re in America, you have NEST, Alexa and a Tesla, so you’ve get a semi-smart home and car. Connect iOS, Android, Raspberry Pi, Arduino and much more. After Years Of Warnings, Internet Of Things Devices To Blame For Big Internet Attack. For the Drybar cofounders Alli Webb and Michael Landau, who are also sister and brother, going into business together for the first time wasn't as easy as they expected.

After Years Of Warnings, Internet Of Things Devices To Blame For Big Internet Attack

"We were both working for Nicole Miller, and we actually got the franchise rights to open stores in Boca Raton and Miami," Landau told Fast Company. "And we nearly killed each other. " If, like me, you can’t fathom the idea of working harmoniously with your sibling, this might sound like a cautionary tale. Alli and Michael thought the same and went their separate ways.

But over a decade later, after finding success with an at-home blowout service, Alli approached Michael with a pitch for a hair salon that trafficked exclusively in blowouts. "When we told our parents that we were going into business together again, they literally freaked out," Landau said. Here's what will happen when 30 billion devices are connected to the internet.

The Internet of Things (IoT), built from inexpensive microsensors and microprocessors paired with tiny power supplies and wireless antennas, is rapidly expanding the online universe from computers and mobile gadgets to ordinary pieces of the physical world: thermostats, cars, door locks, even pet trackers.

Here's what will happen when 30 billion devices are connected to the internet

New IoT devices are announced almost daily, and analysts expected to up to 30 billion of them to be online by 2020. The explosion of connected items, especially those monitored and controlled by artificial intelligence systems, can endow ordinary things with amazing capabilities—a house that unlocks the front door when it recognizes its owner arriving home from work, for example, or an implanted heart monitor that calls the doctor if the organ shows signs of failing. But the real Big Bang in the online universe may lie just ahead. Samsung and SK Telecom to build World-First Nationwide LoRaWAN Network Dedicated to Internet of Things. Samsung Electronics today announced a new contract with SK Telecom to deploy the world’s first commercial Internet of Things (IoT)-dedicated nationwide LoRaWAN network.

The network will be deployed across Korea using the 900 MHz frequency band. The commercial service is scheduled to launch in Daegu, Korea’s fourth largest city, next month and will be available nationwide by the middle of this year. Intel is going all in to enable 50 billion 5G connected internet of things devices by 2020.

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said Intel would be focusing on the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud and 5G as part of the company’s new “virtuous cycle of growth”.

Intel is going all in to enable 50 billion 5G connected internet of things devices by 2020

One of the key engineers of Krzanich’s plan is former Qualcomm executive Venkata “Murthy” Renduchintala, who joined Intel in November last year and has since been named as president of the company’s new Client and Internet of Things Businesses and Systems Architecture Group. Intel has bought into the prediction that there will be more than 50 billion connected devices that make up the IoT by 2020, and each of those devices will need a way to communicate. Intel believes that 5G networks are best suited for that job, and that’s the direction Intel is headed in, Renduchintala said. Barrons had an article indicating that the Internet of Things in its current form is a dead end. Electrolux appliances will work with Google's smart home platform. Google's latest partnership with an appliance manufacturer puts the tech giant one step closer to running your smart home.

Electrolux appliances will work with Google's smart home platform

Electrolux has joined the Early Access Program for Brillo, Google's operating system for the Internet of Things. The manufacturer announced the partnership this week here at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Electrolux's connected ovens, which are available in Europe, will be among the first appliances to use Brillo. Google first revealed the development of Brillo at its 2015 I/O developers' conference. The platform is designed to unify smart home controls on your Android device, similar to what Apple is trying to accomplish with its HomeKit iOS-based platform.

Mr. Ethereum: A Second-Generation Blockchain for the IoT. Ethereum is a system for decentralized applications that uses blockchains, but in a completely different manner than how they are used in bitcoin. The Basic Framework Ethereum has at its core a way to apply arbitrary rules for ownership, transaction formats and state transition functions — taking both the state of a blockchain and a transaction for that chain, and then outputting a new state as its result.

It does this by way of an internal scripting language that is aware of a system’s state while being Turing-complete, which means it can encode any computation that may be performed by the system. The state is made of objects called accounts, which have a 20-byte address and state transitions that exist between accounts. Accounts have four fields: a nonce, so each transaction is processed only once; a balance of ether, or the internal numbers used to pay fees; a contract code that may be empty; and storage, which may also be empty.

IoT mapped: The emerging landscape of smart things. No one really knows how many “things” there are deployed today that have IoT characteristics. IDC’s 2013 estimate was about 9.1 billion, growing to about 28 billion by 2020 and over 50 billion by 2025. You can get pretty much any other number you want, but all the estimates are very large. So what are all these IoT things doing and why are they there? Here’s our attempt to map out the IoT landscape (click to enlarge). How Industrial Systems Are Turning into Digital Services. To some, ball bearings are boring, even though these small steel spheres are what keep everything from factory machines and wind turbines as well as cars, trucks, planes, and trains moving smoothly and safely.

But to Sweden-based SKF Group — the leading company in the $76 billion global market for ball bearing systems — these objects are heroic, destined to become the “brains of rotating machinery” by transmitting data to boost performance, reduce downtime, and prevent accidents. Yet even though SKF has a century-long track record of keeping the wheels of industry turning, this new vision of bearings with brains by no means assures that SKF will prosper in the changeover in technology represented by the internet of things, in which every conceivable object can become a node on the net.

So far, much of the attention around smart, connected products has been around consumer-facing goods like watches and thermostats. Building an industrial internet strategy. Technology and the future of work. Cisco: The Internet of Everything is at tipping point. IoE has reached a tipping point where future growth will happen at an explosive rate, as the digitization of business and society merge.

When you think of impossible dreams, Samsung probably doesn't come to mind. While the South Korean tech giant is a capable creator of mobile devices, computing components, TVs, and household appliances, it tends to be more of a fast follower than a visionary. It sometimes leans too heavily on gimmicks, or takes too much inspiration from Apple—with an occasional exception—and is still figuring out how to make a killer smartwatch despite six attempts in the last 18 months.

But let's give credit where it's due. Declining sensor costs open up new consumer applications. The thing that will make or break the Internet of things isn’t a thing. The Internet of things is on track to be a $71 billion industry by 2018. A future where your refrigerator knows when you’re out of milk and your thermostat can adapt to your personal preferences and behaviors is no longer far-fetched. But it’s still far from a sure thing.
