Analysis based on Twitter conversations
Internet of Things, Industrial Internet of Things and the Internet of Everything IoT has been a hot topic for many years now but recently has opened up new business opportunities in many different industries. Wearable devices, energy management, logistics, self-driving technologies, predictive maintenance, self-checkout, public safety and traffic control are only a few of the many applications of this technology. The time has now come for generating all the possible business values, devices have become smaller and cheaper, and data science can help to extract valuable insights. While IoT security has been criticised over the past few years, IoT device privacy is another growing pain point. Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Chatbots and Robots Artificial intelligence has begun to offer real benefits to businesses even though very few companies have implemented it on a large scale. Deep learning part of a broader family of machine learning methods, starting from classification and detection tasks, DL methods and applications are developing rapidly in every field. Intelligent automation, cognitive systems, machine vision, social and robotics are only a few of the trending applications of artificial intelligence. Siri, Alexa and the Google assistant are just the beginning. We are moving quickly towards a new generation of domestic, human-friendly robots that will be interacting with us in increasingly more complex ways.
