Every so often there comes along a fact or prediction about the future of technology that blows my mind. This infographic, published by BusinessIntelligence.com, takes us on a tour of the Internet of Things landscape, exploring its current state and its future possibilities. This fact in particular is the one that got me this week: “Our Internet of Things world is growing at a breathtaking pace — from 2 billion objects in 2006 to a projected 200 billion objects by 2020.” Not only that but by 2025, the total global worth of IoT technology could reach up to $6.2 trillion, with healthcare and manufacturing making up the bulk.
This infographic goes into a variety of different industry examples, but I’m especially happy to see that robotic machinery got a shout out. (If you missed it, check out one of my previous blog posts on the quantified cow, where I talk about robotic milking machines.)
