DIGC202- Everything is connected

In the last DIGC202 class of the semester, we looked into the concept of IOT (short for internet of things). In all honesty, I had literally no idea what this meant. After an hour of research, I finally began to understand what it was.

The internet of things is the term used for the idea that any device could be connected to the internet and to other devices. Gartner, an analyst firm, has predicted that there will be more than 26 billion connected devices by the year 2020. One criticism that has been raised about IOT technology is security. Joseph Steinberg, a cybersecurity expert and current CEO of SecureMySocial, believes that devices are already beginning to track what we do! The internet is a frightening enough place already as it is, so lord only knows what it’ll be like by 2020!
