Hype Hop Radio - What is IoT?

[00:01] This is Hype Hop Radio. Welcome to your Tech Minute. I am Barbara Bickham. If you go to my website, www.barbarabickham.com, and join our discord group then you will be able to ask any question and it will appear on a future Tech Minute.

[00:33] Now we are discussing the Internet of things. The Internet of things is about connected objects, which could be phones, printers, hardware, or software. It's connected objects to the Internet.

[00:54] There may be as many as 40 to 80 billion connected objects by 2020. There will be 10 connected objects for every man, woman and child on the planets and people can be treated as things through the power of smart devices. People will not only consume data, but they will contribute data to the IoT through their phones and tablets as human sensors.

[01:25] iamwired.com is the source of all this wonderful information. So this is a little bit about the Internet of things and it combined with AR, VR, Ai and the Blockchain, and now we have the full stack of advanced tech.

[01:46] So I want to thank you so much for listening today. I am Barbara Bickham, and this has been your Tech Minute on Hype Hop Radio.
