Connecting devices to the internet helps solve the problem of turning on your lights without ever leaving your chair, but a 1980s device called The Clapper did the same thing. To really bring connected devices into the future people are using them to build services. That’s fun, but it gets even better when you add machine learning to the data those devices collect.
That’s what ThingWorx did when it signed a partnership with Jeff Hawkin’s hot data startup Numenta. Hawkins who was the creator of the Palm Pilot, has tried to build out a series of algorithms that look at data in the manner a human mind does to make predictions. But it can process a lot more data than a human.
In this week’s podcast Russ Fadel, CEO of ThingWorx, talks about the partnership and how predictive intelligence plus connected sensors are changing farming and improving medical care.
Host: Stacey Higginbotham
Guest: Russ Fadel, CEO of ThingWorx
- How farmers are using the internet of things to improve their crops.
- Adding more intelligence to connected devices means they can tell you what to do (and eventually those sensors may tell a robot what to do).
- Does a secure internet of things mean a closed system?
