Alexa, Cortana, Google Assistant, Siri—what’s in store for voice assistants, and how does this tech contribute to the Internet of Skills?
In an industry as dynamic and exciting as the IoT (Internet of Things), it can difficult to separate hype from reality. One sector that often falls victim to hype is AI (artificial intelligence). For many decades, machine intelligence and autonomous decisionmaking have grabbed ahold of people’s imaginations, simultaneously bringing about utopian and dystopian predictions for the future AI-driven world. Practically speaking, the hype surrounding AI technologies can make it tough for investors and businesses to get a handle on exactly what to expect from this growing space and how they should try to harness it. How can companies avoid getting caught up in the AI hype cycle? How can they set their AI projects up for success?
Data can help identify industrial manufacturing projects that are in the conceptual, planning, and design, or approval stages.
2020 starts a brand-new decade. What legacy will it leave? What will the history books say about the 2020s and the mark these years make on society, on the planet?
Procurement leaders are increasingly turning to technology to help them address complexities of the internal, external, and digital varieties.
The IoT (Internet of Things) offers all the potential of an automated, end-to-end cycle of action/reaction—and, suffice it to say, there is a lot of potential.
AI (artificial intelligence) is a collection of technologies that can enable a system to sense, comprehend, act, and learn. These technologies are empowering professionals to better make sense of the vast amounts of digital data that are collected by modern information systems.
As robots become cheaper and more capable, they’re moving from their traditional roles on factory floors into new industries. Collaborative robots or “cobots” too are being integrated into more types of environments and performing more varied tasks—from stocking shelves and assisting factory workers to performing services in the home.
Often the value of technology is limitless: save money, save time, save resources, but perhaps one of the biggest benefits of technology is to save lives. This is evident in the story of this year’s 2019 Connected World Awards winner. The Connected World Awards recognize the most successful user success stories in any vertical industry, including healthcare, agriculture, automotive, and manufacturing, just to name a few. Companies submit for the awards program, explaining how they are using the technology to solve a challenge and identifying the ROI (return on investment) received.
The future for data centers looks bright. In the U.S. alone, the data center market is expected to reach about $10 billion by 2023, while the global data center market could reach $174 billion by 2023, according to intelligence and advisory firm Arizton.
Artificial intelligence can out-poker-face the best human poker players in the world; it has the potential to revolutionize surgery by allowing surgeons to do their work remotely, and it may help scientists predict the probability of life on other planets.
The workplace of tomorrow will look vastly different from the workplace of today. For instance, in the future, workplaces won’t be defined by a physical location. The latest generation of cellular mobile communications, 5G, will help us get there. 5G’s defining characteristics, like high-data rates and low latencies, will unlock new applications for the workplace that were simply not possible in the past.
At a dinner held on June 6, individuals in the IoT (Internet of Things) space gathered to network, learn, and celebrate, as Connected World recognized tech-savvy women at its annual Women of M2M and IoT dinner, sponsored by MultiTech.
Cities are changing. According to the UN (United Nations), 68% of the global population will live in urban areas by 2050, compared to 55% today. What’s more, the UN expects the global population to skyrocket in the next few decades, potentially adding 2.5 billion more people to urban areas by 2050.
