Many people believe that the lowly light bulb might be how the IoT makes it’s way into your home. Even at the light bulb level, security is going to be critical.
This infographic, courtesy of Jabil, gives an good overview of what will be connected to the internet by 2020 (even garbage bins!).
At The ConFab, IBM’s Gary Patton spoke about the future of scaling and concluded that it we will continue scaling with new technology innovation, but we have to figure out how to drive the cost out.
At The ConFab, IBM’s Gary Patton gave us three reasons to be very positive about the future of the semiconductor industry: an explosion of applications, the rise of big data and the need to analyze all that data.
