As we are less than 45 days to a new decade, more and more, we find ourselves getting entangled in the constant, exponential growth of digital technologies. “Blockchain is so 2017” similar catch phrases may appear among those who are tech-savvy. Yet to laymen, Siri’s song identification function still suffices to be the greatest thing since sliced bread. It is thus important to stay informed on the lastest advancements going into 2020.
5G, which stands for “fiſth generation”, is an upcoming standard for mobile telecommunications service that promises to be significantly faster than today’s 4G technology. This will mean that users will be able to browse the internet faster and more smoothly, and allow devices to have better connectivity and lower latency.
Artificial Intelligence of Things is where AI and the IoT meet, bringing intelligence to the edge. As AI moves closer to the edge and into devices, such as sensors, cameras and mobiles, in many cases it eliminates the need for racks of cloud-based computing and instead moves the analysis to the IoT device itself, removing any delay in the processing.
Ultimately, it’s about transforming the IoT data into useful information for an improved decision-making process, with processing done in a location where it is most needed.
