IoT and IT Solutions
The future in the making
IoT and AI... Understand Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence, these are two terms you probably have heard about in recent years. But do you really know what they mean?
Imagine a world where all objects are able to exchange information and communicate with each other, collect data and take smart decisions. Objects that are also able to communicate and interact with their users using the Internet but also other communication networks less known to the public but as effective. It's the world of the Internet of Things and AI.
Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 14.2 billion connected things will be in use by the end of this year, and that the total will reach 25 billion by 2021, producing immense volume of data... As much to tell you that we are witnessing a real digital revolution that will radically change our lifestyles.
There is no IoT without AI, and vice versa. They work hand in hand, to illustrate, let's take an example in the field of intelligent housing, also known as Smart Home. Imagine that your refrigerator becomes intelligent. A refrigerator that can tell you in real time what kind of food is inside of it and is able to order for you when you need to restock.
The refrigerator is an example. But the number of objects that can be connected and intelligent today is unlimited. The potential of the Internet of Things and AI for all of us, but also for businesses, industries and governments is immense.
At VIRENXIA, innovation is in our DNA, it is a natural step for us to integrate IoT and AI at the foundation of every single one of our solutions: to collect data, bring automation, spur continuous improvement, increase profitability, preserve natural resources and much more.
For the time being, and for the general public, IoT and AI are still about gadgetisation and provide quite a low value to its users. Particularly interesting fields of application are energy management in buildings, manufacturing, agriculture, security, transport or healthcare.
