Beyond enhancing the convenience in homes with devices such as smart thermostats and doorbells, the Internet of Things (IoT) has redefined our relationship with data. The first generation of IoT deployments transitioned SCADA-style solutions to IoT Platforms, offering advanced insight and more comprehensive integration, increasing the capabilities and flexibility in managing facilities, machinery, and infrastructure, often at a global level. We are now entering the second generation of IoT enablement where instead of IoT supplementing an operation, it is now becoming the integral solution within itself. Aided by the marriage of analytics, telecommunications advances, and edge computing, IoT ecosystems are becoming the key to solving some of the world’s most challenging problems, both big and small. This seminar explains the evolution underway for IoT from supplementary technology to being the answer within itself, using several real-world examples to show this natural progression and how this is intrinsically tied to edge computing.
