IoT and Automation for building Next Generation Smart World

Speaker:  Balamurugan Shanmugam – Coimbatore, India
Topic(s):  Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Natural language processing


Smart home, Smart city and Wearable Technologies are the most exponentially growing applications of Internet of Things (IoT). Wearable Technology is considered to be highly ubiquitous and most phenomenal IoT Application. Smart World and Wearable Technology exhibits a high potential to transform our lifestyle. Ranging from healthcare tracking applications to smart watches and smart bands for personal safety, IoT has started to become one of the most indispensable parts of our lives. It is predicted by Forbes that, by the end of 2017, the wearable IoT market will reach $14 billion. Also, in another study by Business Insider’s premium research service, by the end of 2020, the wearable IoT market is expected to grow and reach 162.9 million units. Some of the top-notch applications of IoT include smart parking, smart wearable, smart clothing, smart safety, smart farming, smart industry and so on thereby building next-generation smart world. Immense foresights on today’s communication world seem to vest on development of smart world, where intelligent “things” are connected to serve people better. With the exponential growth of Internet of Things (IoT) and its applications, the implementation of smart world becomes much more feasible. Sensor market plays a vital role in applying IoT to build smart world. Applications such as monitoring of parking space to optimally park the vehicles(Smart Parking), detecting the frequency and intensity of traffic and optimally select routes (Traffic Congestion), prediction of trash levels in garbage collection containers (Smart Waste Management), managing the intensity of street lights based on weather condition and sunlight (Smart Lighting), detecting and controlling excess of hazardous gases coming from industries and vehicles (Smart Air Pollution Controlling), detecting the mix of hazardous chemicals of factories with drinking water(Smart Water Pollution Controlling), efficient monitoring and management of power consumption (Smart Grid), artificial intelligence driven retail marketing (Smart Shopping), detecting health abnormalities(Smart  Health) and  Home Automation mechanisms fall under the category of applying IoT to build smart world. The Internet of Things is associate degree rising topic of technical, social, and economic significance. Client merchandise, durables, cars and trucks, industrial and utility parts, sensors, and different everyday objects square measure being combined with web property and powerful information analytic capabilities that promise to remodel the manner we have a tendency to work, live, and play. Projections for the impact of IoT on the web and economy square measure spectacular, with some anticipating as several as one hundred billion connected IoT devices and a world economic impact of over $11 trillion by 2025. At identical time, however, the web of Things raises vital challenges that might change the manner of realizing its potential edges. News headlines concerning the hacking of Internet-connected devices, police work issues, and privacy fears have already got captured public attention. Technical challenges stay and new policy, legal and development challenges square measure rising.
