R(IoT): A rundown on the Internet of Things on Nov 26, 2014

 

In a recent report published by Freelancer.com, it was discovered that there is a rise in data and engineering jobs as the Internet of Things (IoT) takes off.

“Things”, in IoT, refers to different internet-enabled devices, such as biochip transponders for pets and farm animals, pacemaker monitoring implants, self-driving automobiles, field operation devices similar to drones used for fire-fighting, or unmanned aircraft for surveying wildlife reserves. Current examples include smart home appliances such as ovens, refrigerators, and thermostats that respond to smartphone commands. The need for these devices has caused a growth in newer, better ideas for connecting more home and office devices to smartphones.

As many employers drum up IoT innovations, the demand for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math-related skills and specialties has reached new heights. Due to this development, the industry now faces a shortage of experts across the developed world and has started calling upon freelancers to cover the bases.

Inline with this, Talino Talks presents R(IoT): A Rundown on the Internet of Things — a talk on everything there is to know about the Internet of Things.
