AIFREMONT, CA: The opportunities that the Internet of things (IoT) brings to the table are unlimited. IoT has been the most successful technology buzzwords of the year. The new phase of IoT is pushing everyone to ask hard questions about the data gathered by all devices and sensors of IoT.

IoT produces a tsunami of big data, with the rapid expansion of devices and sensors connected to the Internet of Things. The sheer volume of data created by them rises to an astronomical level. This data holds remarkably important insights into what's working well or what's not. Examples of such data:

Data helping cities predict accidents and crimes

Data that gives doctors a real-time insight into information from pacemakers or biochips

Data that optimize productivity across industries through predictive maintenance on equipment and machinery

Data that creates ingenious homes with connected appliances

Data that provides critical communication between self-driving cars

With the traditional method, it is unmanageable for humans to understand and review all this data. To collect the full advantages of IoT data, speed and accuracy of big data analysis should be improved. The only means to keep up with this IoT-generated data and obtain the hidden insights it holds is using AI (Artificial Intelligence) as the last mile of IoT.

In an IoT situation, AI can help the organizations to take billions of points they have and boil them down to what's significant. To zero in on the latent problems, the data has to be examined in terms of what's reasonable and what's not. The data collected, combined with AI, make life simpler with intelligent automation, predictive analytics, and proactive intervention.

AI in IoT applications:

Visual big data will allow computers to gain wider understanding of images on the screen, with AI applications that understand the significance of images.

Cognitive systems will create new recipes appealing to the user’s sense of taste.

 Newer sensors will permit computers to “hear,” gathering sonic data about the user’s environment.

These are just a few assuring applications of Artificial Intelligence in IoT. The potential for profoundly individualized services are countless and will dramatically change the means people live.
