What is the Internet of Things? Simply put, IoT is a series of devices connected to one another via the Internet — and these devices can talk to you, via the information you enter or sensors that you wear and operate. And most of it is automated, meaning these interactions can happen without you even having to do anything.
These internet-connected machines are expected to number 200 billion by 2020, according to research firm IDC Corp. At that rate, automated machine-to-machine transactions will outnumber human-to-computer transactions.
So what does this mean for the public sector? And what programs are agencies and organizations developing to make use of this new technology?
