I don’t want to be accused of being a hammer but if you think about it, IoT is the tech behind digital transformation. If your definition of IoT doesn’t include data science like mine does, then the technologies at hand are IoT and analytics and AI. Industrie four-zero addresses this tech as well as the political, environmental, corporate and academic issues that pave the way.

No one company is big enough to provide an end-to-end industrial Internet of Things solution. Realizing this the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) was founded to bring together different solutions from different vendors to address different use cases. The end game however is not technology, but business – to understand what is needed to put together solutions that not only work well, but sell well.

Episode 93

Want to incorporate blockchain into IoT? Well, that’s a pretty tall order but you have two ways to go about it. Go it alone to build the world’s best IoT blockchain protocol and hope it’s adopted or join others that have similar goals to build the world’s best IoT blockchain protocol in hopes that it’s adopted.

The GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, is coming – whether we like it or not. Before you dismiss it as a European thing, take a second look, because on May 25, 2018, data privacy is going to change worldwide and forever.

What’s the legal definition of a product? Does it cover IoT and is IoT classified a product or a service? Given our laws were never designed for the types of products being sold today, it’s not surprising that there are different interpretations of our current laws and regulations when it comes to IoT.
