The future of consumer electronics:The Internet of Everything, or IoE, is the internet of things (IoT), an interconnected network of devices, sensors, and other devices that are designed to perform complex functions.
Most importantly, the IoT network provides an infrastructure for the delivery of data and information.
In a nutshell, IoEs have become the future backbone of our society and economy.
In fact, a recent study estimated that over 70 percent of the global internet traffic is connected to IoT devices.
Today, more than a billion people around the world rely on IoT devices for the way they access and communicate with their families and businesses.
For example, a smart TV remote can deliver news, weather, and weather alerts, as well as other information.
A smart refrigerator can help you cook dinner or store groceries.
An IoT-enabled smartphone or tablet can tell you how much time has passed, or whether your home is in the best shape possible.
IoT is transforming the way we communicate with each other, and it’s a vital component in the rise and dominance of artificial intelligence.
