Plugging into the Internet of Things

Dr. Scott Elrod  Wed, May 21, 2014

The mash-up of sensors, big data, and the Internet promises to bring radical new efficiency to cities, companies, and individuals. It’s not about the future; it’s here now, driving relatively simple, familiar products (like GM’s OnStar and the Nest thermostat) and complex, hidden systems (like the web-connected buildings on Microsoft’s campus, or a GE jet engine in flight). Some say this is a trillion-dollar opportunity. Who will the players be, and which applications show the most promise?
