“Internet of things is here next year.”
“Everything that can, will be connected.”
– Some phrases heard in Telia Digitalist IoT Forum yesterday.
The speakers of the forum told how all devices and most of the things will get chips and sensors that will be connected to internet. Then huge amounts of data will be collected in order to build different applications on the bases of the analytics on the data. The biggest question is how the data and the applications will turn into digital services that help people and the planet.
Mikko Hyppönen mentioned that marketers want to collect data about consumers but not always to build better products but instead of to try to sell more. It is though nowadays that data is the new oil.
