Visionary technologist Kevin Ashton coined the term Internet of Things (IoT) in 1999, but its true origins may have started in a 1926 Colliers Magazine when futurist Nikola Tesla said:

When wireless is perfectly applied the whole earth will be converted into a huge brain, which in fact it is, all things being particles of a real and rhythmic whole.”

While his vision of the future was profound, it’s doubtful that even Tesla could have envisioned a day when doorbells transmit video calls, contact lenses with inbuilt sensors provide medical information through tear analysis, or garage openers adjust thermostats and turn on coffee makers.

Truth is, that future day is today with an estimated 50 billion Internet of Things devices expected to be connected soon.

Fed by the rollout of 5G broadband technology, there are few areas where the IoT revolution will not impact our lives. It’s all about data and how data influences us. This new technological landscape has ushered in a different kind of ecosystem that not only collects data but transfers it to other devices and renders decisions without human intervention.

All this is possible thanks to recent advances in smart sensor technology. A smart sensor is a device that takes input from the physical environment and uses built-in computing resources to perform functions when it detects specific input and then processes data before passing it on.

That data can be gathered so that the smart sensors enable communication via the web. Smart sensors are what allow IoT things to “talk” between the web and to your devices.

Perhaps most amazingly, these sensors can be placed or installed in just about anything from shoes and clothing to refrigerators or cars.

And the Internet of Things is not just about connected “things.” The economic impact of the IoT will also be enormous. By the year 2025, some forecasters are predicting the economic impact of the Internet of Things will be between $4 and $11 trillion.

Much of the economic impact is about how much money an IoT network of connected devices can save businesses. With embedded technology that can communicate conditions immediately, there can be great reductions in waste of perishable goods, materials lost to manufacturing issues, time lost to unexpected machine or system breakdowns, and energy consumption, resulting in cost savings.

Companies have been known to monetize data, and now they’ll have even more. The increased access to data that can be gathered in real time can also lead to better and more timely business decisions.

Although some jobs will be lost through IoT driven automation, the IoT should greatly increase other types of jobs, especially those related to the gadgets themselves and the data they gather. This includes sales and maintenance of the related hardware, development of devices and analytics software, and data analysis.

More IT staff and customer service representatives will also be needed for monitoring services connected to a lot of these devices.

IoT Training

For engineers, students, entrepreneurs – and just about everyone – having at least a basic understanding of the Internet of Things is essential.
