Our assignment in Technology and User Experience class in NCI this semester is to do an individual project on a topic area for research. The topic area must be a current or emerging technology in the universe of Web Technology. We are required to report on potential development and impact in the next five years, particularly looking at its potential impact on the Marketing discipline.
I have chosen The Internet of Things(IOT).
(IOT) is a proposed development of the Internet in which everyday objects have network connectivity, allowing them to send and receive data. There is a lot of data and information out there on this subject and I am interested in this topic. A thing, in the Internet of Things, can be a person with a heart monitor implant, a farm animal with a biochip transponder, an automobile that has built-in sensors to alert the driver when tire pressure is low — or any other natural or man-made object that can be assigned an IP address and provided with the ability to transfer data over a network.
