IoT Issues, Challenges & Opportunities of a More Connected World: Privacy, Security, Interoperability

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an idea that has been around for a long time but is now starting to come to fruition. The idea is that anything and everything can have a sensor and can provide information to a remote collector somewhere else on The Internet. Our cars, our homes, farm animals, farmer’s fields, light bulbs, roads—just about anything—can be fitted with a data collection device and the information used to make smarter decisions, driving improvements in almost anything from business profitability to consumer value to public safety. The need to collect and analyze the huge amount of data collected is driving advances in Big Data computing. Such data collection, while creating many market opportunities and benefits from improved services, also raises significant privacy, security and interoperability concerns.
