The evolution of the global web has resulted in virtual connections ubiquitously penetrating real-world objects and activities. Today, everything can be connected with everything, creating a new distributed ecosystem that goes beyond the familiar IoT (Internet of Things) concept. Cisco has coined a special term — the Internet of Everything (IoE) — to describe this dynamically changing phenomenon.
Customer feedback can be a powerful tool for business development, but it wouldn’t work without the right analysis. Every day, organizations around the world collect millions of user comments on their websites and in social networks, but most of them neglect this priceless source of information. Why? There may be two reasons: they either don’t realize the value of messages people send them or don’t know the methods of customer feedback analysis.
Modern technologies cannot but influence the biggest industry in the world — manufacturing. Industrial robots have been working in factories alongside human workers for quite some time. They help create efficiencies at all stages, from raw material to final product, are able to operate 24/7, and can be highly cost-effective for any company.
In today’s world, people are too busy to take care of their health in a traditional way. It takes too much time to make an appointment with a doctor, undergo tests, wait for a diagnosis and be prescribed treatment. The solution might be devices that are being constantly worn on the body, monitor different health parameters and timely transmit data to users and doctors. And such devices do already exist!
The machine learning technology as a part of the artificial intelligence field is evolving quickly and has implications for all industries and areas of life. It’s important for businesses to be aware of the technological innovations, big changes and the latest trends. The best way to do this is to attend different tech events.
The driverless car market is just starting to emerge, but experts predict its rapid growth in the coming years.
A number of leading global automakers such as BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, General Motors and Toyota, together with IT-giants Google and Apple, place serious emphasis on autonomous driving and IoT technology. They are actively engaged in the development of automotive IoT solutions to assist drivers and, as the ultimate goal, to create a Level 5 (see below) self-driving car.
They can work day and night. They don’t need down time, breaks or medical insurance. They don’t have conflicts with with their bosses or colleagues, and take no personal time to deal with their problems. They are robots!
The manufacturing industry is currently experiencing an increasing influence of the Internet of Things (IoT), aka Industry 4.0. The IoT has a positive impact on both production and business management processes.
We have been using internet connected car technologies for years, in ways that by now seem routine for many: they link to our smartphones, register real-time traffic alerts, stream music from the Internet, and offer emergency roadside assistance at the touch of a button.
