Hey folks, happy Week in Review from IoT Evolution World headquarters. We’ve got some fun stories for you this week, and we’ll get to it in just a bit, but first, we’re already getting ready for the IoT Evolution Expo in Las Vegas show in July. If you want to get in on it as a sponsor or exhibitor, now’s the time, so hook up with Matt Gleeson, our Biz Dev maestro.
And now, the news:
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable.
Conexant, a software developer and fabless semiconductor company that provides solutions for voice and audio processing, has presented three new products at the last Consumer Electronics Show.
Elon Musk of Tesla and Paypal, famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, and thousands of others have warned about the dangers of AI (artificial intelligence) implementation and how it could evolve to a point where humanity couldn’t control its own destiny. But how do you jump start the movement and get to that point?
Readix Engineering Solutions was in the business of the Internet of Things (IoT) before the vast network of M2M devices and connections was given that moniker. The company works with developers, engineering teams and entrepreneurs to identify their specific connectivity requirements and challenges and develop customized solutions to help organizations meet their objectives.
In this age when more and more machines are taking over thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT), it’s necessary to have some help in making sure they’re all running in sync. That’s where Ingenu comes in. The San Diego-based company bills itself as bringing “connectivity exclusively to machines”, and they’re spot on in that assessment.
If you were to read most of the articles, you would think the concept of a smart city is relatively new. Well, it is not. A publication in California laid the foundation for smart cities way back to the late 1960s. However, recent innovation is what led to the current concept of smart cities and now, emerging technologies coupled with creative strategies are poised to expand the concept and take it in a slightly different direction.
This week on the IoT Time Podcast, I spoke with Ryan Betts, CTO, VoltDB, to get some early intel ahead of his upcoming webinar, “Understanding the Operational Database Infrastructure for IoT and Fast Data.”
