Want to incorporate blockchain into IoT? Well, that’s a pretty tall order but you have two ways to go about it.

Episode 92

Blockchain. One of the few technologies more hyped than IoT. Put them together and it’s a hypefest. But is it warranted?

There’s no denying it, robots are cool, even more cool when you call them cyber-physical systems, which is what they are, but they’re also IoT systems. And applying the thinking of IoT to robots makes them even cooler and more valuable because instead of being discrete systems, they can be integrated as a component of an IoT environment, working together with other components, to deliver outcomes.
