Five facts about the Internet of Things

View Transcriptarrow
because of the Internet of Things more
0:07
electronic devices are being connected
0:09
to the Internet and they're talking to
0:10
each other behind your back
0:12
welcome to watchmojo.com and how it's
0:17
becoming a major part of our lives in
0:19
ways you probably didn't know live in
0:22
the now number five the Internet of
0:25
Things is already in effect the Internet
0:28
of Things is an emerging technology
0:30
where machines are embedded with sensors
0:32
that allow them to relay data to each
0:34
other with little to no human
0:35
involvement basically it means all sorts
0:38
of everyday items are connected to the
0:40
Internet which could potentially
0:41
transform the way we live one of the
0:44
earliest examples of this concept
0:45
actually goes back to the early 1970s
0:47
when the first ATMs went online some
0:50
items you may already own which
0:52
incorporate the Internet of Things
0:53
include the Apple watch fitbit's and
0:55
smart home appliances like refrigerators
0:57
many other items are in the midst of
1:00
getting the Internet of Things treatment
1:01
like cars and streets which could work
1:04
together to facilitate the flow of
1:05
rush-hour traffic number four big
1:08
businesses are already investing
1:10
billions into the concept in 2008 there
1:13
were officially more devices connected
1:15
to the Internet than there were human
1:17
beings and by 2020 that number is
1:20
expected to go up to 50 billion
1:21
according to Cisco tech companies see a
1:24
promising future in the Internet of
1:25
Things claiming that it will make
1:27
businesses more efficient in a recent
1:29
report GE predicted that the IOT will
1:31
add as much as fifteen trillion dollars
1:34
to the global GDP in the next twenty
1:36
years and according to projections by
1:38
Business Insider these products will
1:40
outperform the tablet PC and phone
1:42
market combined for the time being
1:45
the largest market will be smart home
1:46
technology such as thermostats made by
1:49
nest a company Google bought for 3.2
1:51
billion dollars according to bi
1:54
intelligence the IOT market is estimated
1:56
to be worth four hundred ninety billion
1:58
dollars by 2019 but this remains
2:01
speculative it is possible that
2:03
consumers will by and large failed to
2:05
see any value in having all their
2:07
possessions networked and those
2:08
projections will prove grossly overblown
2:10
it's got a computer chip in it
2:12
everything does
2:13
number three the internet-of-things
2:15
could save lives while the IOT will no
2:19
doubt make tech giant's much richer it
2:21
might also benefit the rest of us IOT
2:23
technology could completely
2:24
revolutionize patient care as well as
2:26
improve communication between doctors
2:28
and their patients for example at the
2:31
University of Tokyo researchers have
2:32
created an electricity conducting ink
2:35
that can be printed onto clothing and
2:36
used to measure heart rate or muscle
2:38
contractions so people can easily
2:40
monitor their own vital signs IOT
2:43
technology can also help in emergency
2:45
situations if someone has a heart attack
2:47
or stroke relevant data from the
2:48
patient's medical history can be sent to
2:50
the doctor before the ambulance takes
2:52
the patient to the hospital giving
2:53
physicians a few more crucial minutes to
2:56
figure out the best treatment possible
2:57
number two Wi-Fi developments will make
3:01
the Internet of Things work better
3:02
scientists and engineers from the
3:04
University of Washington have invented a
3:06
new Wi-Fi system that transmits Wi-Fi
3:08
using ten thousand times less power than
3:11
current gen routers this could allow for
3:13
very low powered sensors to be placed in
3:15
just about anything
3:16
another system power over Wi-Fi or Poe
3:19
Wi-Fi for short allows enabled devices
3:21
to convert Wi-Fi signal itself into DC
3:24
current yes soon new devices could be
3:27
powered by Wi-Fi if engineers could
3:29
bring these or other technologies
3:31
together devices and appliances could be
3:33
interconnected and continue to run on an
3:35
energy loop powered by that same Wi-Fi
3:37
and this will only make the Internet of
3:39
Things more efficient accessible and
3:41
convenient for us
3:48
number one the internet-of-things could
3:51
come with security problems we're
3:53
sweeping every wirelessly accessible
3:54
camera on the planet cell phones laptops
3:58
if it's connected to a satellite its
4:00
eyes and ears for us though the IOT
4:03
looks like it offers countless benefits
4:04
there are also some potential security
4:07
issues for one it gives companies more
4:09
opportunities to invade our privacy for
4:12
example the Indian firms silver push has
4:14
technology that can track you across
4:15
multiple platforms and devices by
4:17
embedding tiny sounds into websites or
4:20
television programs that while inaudible
4:23
to us can be detected by our devices and
4:25
that data can be fed back to silver bush
4:28
that can't be true honey if it were I'd
4:31
be terrified according to a study by
4:33
hewlett-packard 70% of IOT enabled
4:36
devices can potentially be hacked kind
4:39
of makes you wary of products like
4:40
Logitech Smart remotes or the Amazon -
4:43
button doesn't it the fear as unlikely
4:46
as it may seem to some is that we
4:48
inadvertently end up in a surveillance
4:50
state where companies watch over us like
4:52
Big Brother so what do you think will
4:55
the Internet of Things improve our lives
4:57
or lead to a bleak dystopian future
5:01
Oh for more interconnected top tens and
5:07
invasive top 5s published every day be
5:09
sure to subscribe to watchmojo.com well
5:12
look at the wonders of the computer age
5:15
now wonders Lisa or blunders I think
5:19
that was implied by what I said
Is your kettle watching you? The internet of things.
