The 2016 Internet of Things Landscape in Two Infographics

The 2016 Internet of Things Landscape

"An entirely new way of interacting with our world is emerging,” writes Matt Turck from FirstMark Capital. "The Internet of Things is about the transformation of any physical object into a digital data product." The 2016 Internet of Things is occurring in five areas: the connected home, wearables, healthcare, robotics/drones, and transportation.

Meanwhile the security of IoT devices looms, with Linux founder Torvalds reminding us that "security plays second fiddle." For instance, an Amazon Echo got confused and hijacked a thermostat after NPR was left on.

If you think that's amusing, remember that with Alexa, Cortana, Siri, Google Now, and others, "you have a personal digital assistant that knows you," Microsoft's Satya Nadella says, "knows your preferences, has the ability, in a privacy-protecting way, to go and look at your information and your organization's information and help you with your tasks."

Plus: Learn how to build a motion sensing security camera with a Raspberry Pi. That reminds us of our own hack: a front desk AI inspired by Mark Zuckerberg's New Year's resolution.
