You would be forgiven for not truly considering how interconnected many of the things we use today are. From an end-user standpoint, things such as appliances, televisions, and mobile phones just work. Have you ever thought about what truly is inside the technology? What sensors are there? Just how many devices collect information on your usage habits so that they can better refine the product? All questions aside, the Internet of Things encompasses this process and it deeply ties into technological advances and the security issues that are the converse of those advances.
What is the Internet of Things?
In short, the Internet of Things is the name given to the now billions of devices that can connect to the internet and collect and share data. Even devices that are not particularly advanced such as a digital toaster with wifi capabilities all of a sudden has the ability to transmit data. If for some reason, the toaster manufacturer wanted to know your bread eating habits and how you like your bread toasted, they could potentially collect that data.
When we discuss connectivity, smartphones come to mind, televisions come to mind, tablets and other popular devices are things we consider when we think about technological advances in connectivity in the past two decades. However, there are many smaller “conveniences” that we have enjoyed such as smart lightbulbs that can be considered as part of the Internet of Things.
Truthfully, the true value of the term Internet of Things lies in these small, innocuous devices. When we look at a person, do we see a human being or do we see a collection of trillions of cells and biological components that make up a person? Of course, we see the person!
What we are witnessing with the IoT is a new body being born. All of these small devices with limited functionality on their own do not amount to munch, but their sum total is what is dubbed the IoT.
