The IoT is based on sensor technology that collects data and then transmits that data via the internet, to the Cloud. An IoT platform embraces the dumped data, and then Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies clean up the data, sort it and analyze it before redistributing it to other devices or human-machine interfaces for human consumption specific to the purpose. The data is turned into real-time, valuable information that enhances the human experience, creating more efficient and convenient operational means. So, sensors, internet, cloud, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and interface software all are part of the Internet of Things information lifecycle, and IoT devices are becoming part of our daily lives.
More devices are constantly being added to the IoT system. The Internet of Things is overwhelmingly altering the way individuals and organizations interact with technology. Just as significant, the principles for human and IoT interactions, especially those without screens and keyboards are still being considered. How human to IoT interactions develop will go a long way in determining the role IoT plays in both individual and business functions.
