IoT or internet of things was the main point of this week’s lecture. IoT was first coined in 1999 at MIT labs. In simple terms the Internet of things refers to all the millions of things connected to the internet and interacting with each other. The concept can be pretty well summarised by the quote Russel David: “I can’t understand why teddy bears did not have Wi-Fi before. A bear without Wi-Fi is barely alive, a semi bear”. While yes the joke is a clever use of word play with the purpose to make you crack a smile but it also reflects the key idea of IoT which is that if it can be connected to the internet then it will no matter how trivial it is.
