Further implication of the internet of things will destroy the American culture that was built upon an innovative but cautious society. IOT is essentially creating an internet stock bubble full of subprime security and the fallacy of a more connected world. Artificial intelligence (AI) is the next step in IOT to complete a fully connected environment between conscious life and technological advancement. “Stephen Hawking himself recently posted that when true artificial intelligence is achieved, humankind is finished” (tripwire). The slippery slope of innovation is clearly shown when IOT reaches artificial intelligence because where do humans draw the line when AI is building its own race? The American society would inevitably be controlled by a dystopian nervous system of IOT devices similar to that of the Borg from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Human-kind would innovate itself out of the equation in order to satisfy the unending human urge for discovery. The U.S would not conduct foreign affairs in the same way as it does currently because our country would be more susceptible to hacking and large scale cyber attacks from enemy countries. The right of people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects is covered by the U.S constitution’s fourth amendment. This amendment becomes virtually useless because of the logistical nightmare that IOT
This concept represents the behavioral side of the Internet of Things: that massive proliferation of connected devices, networks, systems and people that promises to help us avoid car accidents, know when our appliances are about to break down, and keep us healthy. For B-to-C companies, though, the sensor-heavy M2M applications might be less important than the device that has almost become a human appendage: our smartphone.
First of all, the internet of things is a set of heavily invested capabilities in search of long and deep profit. The goal of the internet of things is to gather up information about us and use it to optimize processes and nudge us to earn more. This information can be collected by different kind of sensors or device, for example, camera for face recognition, mobile phones, fitness
Bigger than the Industrial Revolution, This is how some analysts talk about the budding "Internet of Things" and the innovation that will come as a result. We will start to see a plethora of "dumb" objects become connected; sending signals to each other and alerts to our phones, and creating mounds of "little data" on all of us that will make marketers salivate.
Internet of Things (IoT) are devices that can collect and share data with no human interactions. IoT are machines that connect to other machines. Examples of IoT’s are fitness trackers that report to a smart phone, smart vacuum cleaners that are self- propelled, and Apps for your smart phone that can adjust lighting, temperature or security features at your house when you are away.
“In a few decades’ time, computers will be interwoven into almost every industrial product”, said computer scientist pioneer Karl Steinbuch in 1966. Steinbuch’s prediction couldn’t be closer to the truth. Today we see the “Internet of Things” (IoT), which is the concept that modern devices are provided with “unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring any human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction” (Rouse, 2014). Wireless technologies, the internet, and various other types of computer networks have converged to form the IoTs as we know it. The Internet of Things is a complex technical and policy-related subject, and impacts everything from politics and the environment, to society and the economy.
Over the last decades, electronics industry had a tremendous growth and became a main pillar of the overall world’s economy. Electronic mobile devices are replacing the conventional ways people used to interact and perceive information, and created unprecedented uses that don’t have conventional counterparts: health and fitness trackers, smart watches and virtual assistants to name a few.
Technology has touched the facets of our everyday life in a manner that some businesses are not able to keep up with the fast and accelerated rate of change. You would be hard-pressed not to see a trace of a software or hardware anywhere you go. Starting from smart phones, to smart homes, to smart cities, technology has by all means taken over propels’ lives.
The Internet of Things is quickly becoming a reality in our world, but most people don’t really know what it is or how it affects your daily life. According to Forbes.com the Internet of Things is “Simply put, this is the concept of basically connecting any device with an on and off switch to the Internet (and/or to each other). This includes everything from cellphones, coffee makers, washing machines, headphones, lamps, wearable devices and almost anything else you can think of.” The examples listed are only a small number of items the will be a part of the Internet of Things. The daily life of a person will be affected in greater ways than initially believed. The Internet of things already has an impact on transportation and that impact is growing quickly. The connection of the Internet of Things and transportation has already affected the lives of many people. Being by GPS and airplane flight scheduling and train scheduling to name a few convivences that we didn’t even realize were a part of the Internet of Things. These convivences make our lives much easier, but with these luxuries come with areas that need to be discussed as described by Berman and Cerf in their article about the Internet of Things. These being, Policies for the Internet of Things safety, security, and privacy. Legal framework for determining appropriate behavior. Human rights and ethical behavior in the Internet of Things. Human rights and ethical behavior in the Internet of Things. Lastly,
IoT is quickly becoming the new reality all around the world. The creation of IoT devices are expected to triple in the next few years (Rossolillo 2016). The IoT appliances include everything from autonomous cars to smart tattoos. As the gadgets change the technology and platforms used disseminate the information will also change and become more refined through Narrowband IoT. The future of the internet of things is expected to bring significant improvement to individual lives, corporations, and the global gross domestic product (GDP).
The Internet of Things (IoT) is known for wearable gadgets such as the new Apple watch or fitness wearables such as Fitbit. Information is gathered from these devices and displayed on users’ computers and smartphones, to let consumers track such things as fitness. There are devices for the medical field to help patients track vital signs and have those transmitted to their doctors back at their offices. Rivera & Goasduff (2014) suggest the Internet of Things (IoT) is forecast to reach 26 billion installed units by 2020, up from 0.9 billion just five years ago, and will impact the information available to supply chain leaders and how the supply chain operates.
The internet of things (IoT) is comparable to the internet in how it provides communication connections over a large area public network. The internet is used to connect people to each other using device connections to a main stream network. The IoT is currently a conceptual construct of a network system working as a conduit to serve as a direct line of communication for multiple electrical operated objects. In theory if an object has an on/off toggle switch, then the object will eventually be able to be connected to the system. The purpose of the IoT is to provide a medium to connect electrical devices allowing them to work in unison in effort to improve the efficiency of their operations. Advanced algorithms drive these devices to complete complex decision making tasks in real time scenarios to improve the efficiency of their operations (Pye, 2014).
Eliasson et al., (2015) states that ‘Small embedded systems equipped with a combination of sensors and/or actuators, as well as with networking capabilities, are the core building blocks of an Internet of Things’.
Internet of Things (technology operations) is in its infancy. It is not fully developed and fragmented. Luis Galvez, director of Internet of the Federation of things, a group dedicated to offering companies together to accelerate the development of operating techniques, compares the current state of technology and the birth of the operations of the computer, indicating that businesses and consumers are learning what products can connect to the Internet, and now is the time to figure out what to do done with this technology.
Recently, the concept of the Internet as a set of connected computer devices is changed to a set of connected surrounding things of human’s living space, such as home appliances, machines, transportation, business storage, and goods etc. The number of things in the living space is larger than the number of world population. Research is going on how to make these things to communicate with each other like computer devices communicate through Internet. The communication among these things is referred as Internet of Things (IoT). Till now, there is no specific definition or standard architecture of IoT. Some researchers define the IoT as a new model that contains all of wireless communication technologies such as wireless sensor networks, mobile networks, and actuators. Each element of IoT is called a thing and should have a unique address. Things communicate using the Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology and work in harmony to reach a common goal. In addition, the IoT should contain a strategy to determine its users and their privileges and restrictions.
