What is IoT?
The internet of things, or IoT, is a network of interconnected computing devices, mechanical and digital machinery, items, animals, and people with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.
A person with a heart monitor implant, a farm animal with a biochip transponder, an automobile with built-in sensors to alert the driver when tyre pressure is low, or any other natural or man-made object that can be assigned an Internet Protocol (IP) address and can transfer data over a network are all examples of things in the internet of things.
Why Learn IoT?
Internet of Things is considered as the next big technology revolution after invention of the Internet. It is supposed to make tremendous impacts on lives and may possibly lead to the betterment of millions of lives throughout the world. According to Cisco, over 50 million devices are expected to be connected to IoT by 2020.
Healthcare, Logistics, Aviation, Education, Information Technology name any thing and IoT will become an integral part of all these verticals. Internet of Things is believed to bring about the singularity which will ultimately converge into becoming the Internet of Everything.
IoT has, therefore, become a leading interest of technologists globally and is perceived to be the NEXT BIG THING in IT industry. Learning IoT will not only provide you a career boost but you will also be able to gain insights on how technology has affected the world and will continue to do so in the coming decades.
