Internet of things (IoT):


Internet of things (IoT):
There is no single universal definition for IoT(Internet of Things). It generally refers to scenarios where network connectivity and computing capability extends to objects, sensors and everyday items not normally considered computers, allowing these devices to generate exchange and consume data with minimal human intervention. Internet of Things paradigm enables the objects, also called things, for sensing, which subsequently interoperate and communicates with other objects for data exchange through an existing physical network infrastructure. It promotes a seamless amalgamation between the smart devices, and the physical world to ensure full automation that eventually improves human life. Architecture is generally divided into three layers, Perception layer, Network layer, and Service/Application layer. 


 
The concept of combining computers, sensors, and networks to monitor and control devices has existed for decades. The recent confluence of several technology market trends, however, is bringing the Internet of Things closer to widespread reality. These include Ubiquitous Connectivity, Widespread Adoption of IP-based Networking, Computing Economics, Miniaturization, Advances in Data Analytics, and the Rise of Cloud Computing.

IoT implementations use different technical communications models, each with its own characteristics. Four common communications models described by the Internet Architecture Board include: Device-to-Device, Device-to-Cloud, Device-to-Gateway, and Back-End Data-Sharing. These models highlight the flexibility in the ways that IoT devices can connect and provide value to the user
The bottom line is a big motivation for starting, investing in, and operating any business. End-to-end solution providers operating in vertical industries and delivering services using cloud analytics will be the most successful at monetizing a large portion of the value in IoT

IoT can be divided into three primary categories based on usage.

  1. ·         Consumer IoT    : Connected devices such as Smart watches, cars, phones, laptops, homes and appliances and entertainment systems
  2. ·         Commercial IoT : Like Inventory controls, device trackers, and connected medical devices
  3. ·         Industrial IoT      : Things such as electric meters, waste water system, flow gauges, manufacturing robots, and other industrial type devices.


Factors driving adoption of intelligent actions in IoT
  1. ·         Lower machine prices
  2. ·         Improved machine functionality
  3. ·         Real time monitoring
  4. ·         Faster and more efficient logistics and supply chain
  5. ·         Customer experience optimization
  6. IoT retail benefits reported by early adopters

In its 2016 Internet of Things report, Verizon showed various use cases in retail IoT. Retailers are also positive about many aspects of Internet of Things deployments, Verizon found. Source: (http://www.verizonenterprise.com/verizon-insights-lab/state-of-the-market-internet-of-things/2016/)
  1. ·         77 percent of retailers see that IoT changes customer experience 

Security; privacy; interoperability and standards; legal, regulatory, and rights; and emerging economies and development are the five key IoT issue areas examined to explore some of the most pressing challenges and questions related to the technology.

What is Cloud Services and Cloud Computing?

A cloud service is any service made available to users on demand via the Internet from a cloud computing provider's servers as opposed to being provided from a company's own on-premises servers. Cloud services are designed to provide easy, scalable access to applications, resources and services, and are fully managed by a cloud services provider.
On the other hand, Cloud computing is a type of computing that relies on shared computing resources rather than having local servers or personal devices to handle applications. In its most simple description, cloud computing is taking services ("cloud services") and moving them outside an organization's firewall. Applications, storage and other services are accessed via the Web. The services are delivered and used over the Internet and are paid for by the cloud customer on and as-needed or pay-per-use business model.

Cloud computing can be divided into several sub-categories depending on the physical lo…

Addiction

When it comes to addictions and the problem that come with them, it is difficult to draw a line on the genesis of the whole vicious matter especially when the victim is going through a destructive phase of the addiction cycle.While there are many forms of addictions, there are those that have defiantly been with the human race for the longest time such as drug and sexual types of addictions and the paper focuses on such types. Addictions in their nature affect the deepest parts of a human being such as the physical and psychological and since they have the potential of chaining the addicted person in ways that are uncontrollable and unhealthy, the need to come up with relatively correct information about their nature becomes imperative.
What is the exact nature of addictions, are they behavioral or genetic? There are divergent schools of thought concerning its nature and while one faction such as the doctors propose that they are caused by genetic and environmental factors, others i…
