Tips to the Internet of things

Sooner or later all the electronics devices in the internet of things will be connected with each other, and capable of taking decisions without any human presence. The devices will be able for example to read your vital signs and if justifiable launch an alert to the hospital or contact the person which you have chosen in case of emergency.

In business companies will be able to improve their operational efficiency, devices will be able to better read symptoms and act adequately. Cars will be driving alone, for example: if you have a trucking company you will be able to program the route in the truck and the truck will arrive at the programmed destiny, while you be able to watch every movement, signal during the delivery route. 

One of my fears in the internet of things world is that maybe it will drive us to a dystopian future like 1984, but let's have hope in humanity and in the great leaders that we have. 

Now if you want to read more about the internet of things world, I advice you to read the articles that Mckinsey has been writing:
