What IoT Needs To Work? Answer is

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Digital Ritesh

Together with the expansion and the goal of a sustainable society, people need better ways to collect and distribute information over the Internet, maintaining accuracy, reliability, relevancy, and security.

Many years ago, almost every piece of digital information was typed, recorded, or in some other way created by human beings.

Humans are fundamentally limited in the rate at which they can generate information. However, computers and other devices can generate information without any human interaction, which increases the possibility to collect sufficient information to reduce unnecessary loss and costs.

However, in order to take appropriate actions based on decisions, people need to know that the information they are basing their decisions on is secure and accurate.

In order to achieve accuracy, reliability, and relevancy in the enormous amounts of generated and processed data, there is a need of transferring human intelligence and appropriate security mechanisms to the systems in use.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the word used to describe computer systems with intelligent behavior, such as representation, searching, reasoning, and learning, which are the four fundamental features of AI.

A system with AI needs an internal representation of a problem or related knowledge to be able to know when a problem arises.

After a problem has been identified the next step is to find out what to do, which is often done by using different kinds of search methods. When relevant information associated with the problem has been found, reasoning together with the knowledge is used to find a fitting solution.

Most systems with AI also have the ability to adapt and optimize if necessary, which is done by machine learning based on historical statistics for example.

The activities of Artificial Intelligence can be spread around in IoT and do not require that all the activities occur in the same place.

In IoT, the collection of all these activities is what creates AI. The flow of data in regards to sensing and processing can be presented in different ways.

The flow can be as simple as an object acquiring data through a sensor, which it then processes and finally transmits in the form of a data packet.

The simplest way of describing a data processing flow is a monitoring object collecting data which is sent to a computation device that processes and analyses the data. 

The computation device then sends the result to a terminal that executes a command based on the result or simply presents the data to for example a user.

The processing of data may not occurs only once during the data flow in IoT, the sensor itself might do some processing before the data is sent to a larger collection point which in turn sends the data to a processing point.

The use of remote processing is especially relevant when the system consists of multiple objects that together provide the data necessary to decide if a command needs to be executed or not.

Artificial intelligence is not necessarily positioned in the same platform or device since its placement will depend upon the structure of the IoT environment.

When connected to the Internet, the possibility that others can see us, hear us, and control devices are greatly expanded through the deployment of IoT.

Moreover, privacy and personal integrity concerns arise as more data is collected about our activities and personal information, in the form of locations, habits, or financial account numbers.

Additionally, many of the decisions and actions that will be taken based upon and using IoT will have real-world costs, risks, and benefits

For these reasons, ensure that security considerations are part of the design process and not something that is added late in the development of each IoT device.

When deploying things that are capable of connecting to the Internet it will be important that implementations are done correctly, otherwise, systems and their information might be exposed to attacks.
