“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”
The Internet of Things (IoT) is only useful when lots of data (variety and quantity) is being collected and is made available for someone or something to analyse that data and make sense out of it.
The actual use cases or problems still need to be defined by someone who has a need, and that would be us! Without a need, the effort and cost involved in collecting and storing all this data is going to be a waste.
Let’s start thinking about what problems we want solved and what we want our future to look like. We might just get what we need, rather than being given something we may not want.
“You’ve got to think about big things while you’re doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction.”
– Alvin Toffler
