MIT Technology Review has a “pitch” article for a new online course which also has some good, solid overview information on the IoT marketplace:
What if every vehicle, home appliance, heating system and light switch were connected to the Internet? Today, that’s not such a stretch of the imagination.
Modern cars, for instance, already have hundreds of sensors and multiple computers connected over an internal network. And that’s just one example of the 6.4 billion connected “things” in use worldwide this year, according to research by Gartner Inc. DHL and Cisco Systems offer even higher estimates—their 2015 Trend Report sets the current number of connected devices at about 15 billion, amidst industry expectations that the tally will increase to 50 billion by 2020.
MIT Professional Education is offering this new, six-week online course beginning April 12, 2016 and we thought you might want to know about it. Here’s the link: Internet of Things: Roadmap to a Connected World.
If you take the course, let us know in the comments about your experience with it.
