Internet of Things Leading Charge of Disruptive Technologies
The Internet of Things(IoT) is the interconnection via the Internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data. Disruptive technologies are innovations that significantly alters the way that consumers, industries, or businesses operate. There are expected to be anywhere from 30-100+ billion connected devices this year. The ability to connect devices to the internet is not new, but we’re now connecting more “things” to the internet than ever before.
Imagine your alarm going off in the morning and as you are laying there, your coffee maker begins to brew your cup of Joe before your self-driving car drives you to a smart office environment in which your personal space is perfectly adapted to your needs and keeps you safe in this COVID-19 pandemic. You barely have your eyes open before you arrive at work.
With the evolution of sensors, IoT is going to transfer our world into smart cities. The more things we develop and connect, the more this disruptive technology is going to evolve us into a world we can’t even fathom yet. Most industries are being impacted by the internet of things already and will continue to do so as the number of connected devices continues to rise.
Disruptive technologies like the IoT offer us great benefits, but don’t be naive and ignore the negatives they can bring. The biggest one being security breaches. With every new device we connect to our network, we have increased our chances of a security breach.
