I’ve been at IBM for over three months now. I feel like I am getting to grips with my role. I am enjoying working with, and learning from, my colleagues. And I am loving the excitement, innovation, and fast pace that comes from working at a leading technology company.
I’m also enjoying talking about my job to others. They seem fascinated by what IBM are doing, and I am peppered with questions whenever anyone brings up that standard “so what do you do?” subject:
- What is the Internet of Things?
- How does IoT work?
- How will the IoT effect me and my day-to-day life?
- What can I use IoT for?
- And (the best one yet) will robots take over the world, and will we start living in a Terminator movie?
Well the answer to the last one is a clear no, but it does lead to fun conversation. Liza Cooper has written a great blog post on the evolution and innovation in robotics, which should help put your mind at rest!
As for the rest of the questions, I recently discovered this great infographic from RS Components Ltd. It helps provide a great visualisation on the basics of IoT.
Take a look below, and let us know what you think about Internet of Things, and ways you’d like to see it used in the future.
