For the last 10 posts I’ve been sharing my research with you around top trends for 2013. I’ve covered everything from Social Business to Big Data to Cloud Computing. Today I am sharing a list of 28 articles and blog posts that discuss the developments we might see in 2013 around the trend called “Internet of Things” or IoT for short.
The IoT refers to the explosion of embedded sensors and intelligent devices that are flooding our every day lives. Sensors are being embedded in all sorts of ‘things’ from fitness monitors, to cars, to water main valves. There are forecasts from industry analysts that say there will be up to 100 billion uniquely identifiable objects connected to the Internet by 2020. Many of these devices will be able to talk to other devices and computers without any human intervention. Enterprises can deploy their own sensor networks, building sense and respond systems that can work autonomously. Some say that the IoT will be the most disruptive technological revolution since the advent of the World Wide Web.
Below you will find a list of 28 articles that discuss the IoT and what developments we might expect to see in 2013.
