  5. 5. What is IoT? • The term IoT was first mentioned by Kevin Ashton, cofounder of AutoID,  in a presentation to P&G in 1999.  ! ! “Today computers -- and, therefore, the Internet -- are almost wholly dependent on human beings for information. Nearly all of the roughly 50 petabytes (a petabyte is 1,024terabytes) of data available on the Internet were first captured and created by human beings by typing, pressing a record button, taking a digital picture or scanning a bar code.   The problem is, people have limited time, attention and accuracy -- all of which means they are not very good at capturing data about things in the real world. If we had computers that knew everything there was to know about things -- using data they gathered without any help from us -- we would be able to track and count everything and greatly reduce waste, loss and cost. We would know when things needed replacing, repairing or recalling and whether they were ” fresh or past their best.
  6. 6. What is IoT? IoT is all about connecting the physical world to the virtual world. In other words, interacting with the physical world using technology.
  7. 7. Where is it applied? • Home • Business • Quantified self • Cars • Transportation • Aviation • Hospitals • Agriculture • Defense • Government • Any place you need to connect the physical world 
 to the virtual world ! The possibilities are limitless!
