The Digital Revolution's Impact on These 4 Growing Industries

We are currently in the midst of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), which includes the data and technology used to link people and machines globally. 4IR includes everything from artificial intelligence (AI) to 5G to smart infrastructure.

In a study by the Center for Sustainable Development, Southern Santa Caterina, Brazil, scientists took an in-depth look at how COVID-19 ushered in the 4IR faster than expected. With more people forced to work from home, businesses had to embrace technologies they'd not yet considered. Advances in healthcare saw some of the biggest changes, including telemedicine. 

How IoT Can Vastly Improve Warehouse Management

Almost no one would argue against the idea that Amazon has been the face of innovation in the supply chain and warehouse management field. From the ecommerce giant’s use of an automated robot army, like Kiva smart shelves and order-packing machines, to its intelligent and voice-enabled picking system, efficiency is the name of the game. Unfortunately, it gives the impression that many competitors, especially small-time operations, cannot hope to compete in the space.

How Mobile Technology Has Evolved Into the IoT World

Of all the major tech innovations to reshape the world over the past few decades, one of the biggest has been the rise of internet of things (IoT) devices. 

As the number of IoT devices has grown — and both consumers and businesses have adopted the tech — mobile technology has had to evolve fast to keep up.

These are the most significant changes that mobile technology designers have made to meet the needs of IoT technology in the consumer and business worlds — and how all mobile device users are likely to benefit.

High Speeds and Improved Reliability With 5G

The most significant impact of the IoT revolution has likely been on the direction of 5G, the next generation of cell network technology. 

The Evolution of PCBs and Their Future in IoT

Printed circuit boards (or PCBs) are among some of the most important types of electronic components. Circuit boards act as the foundation for most modern electronics, connecting and supporting all the different components of a device.

Internet of things (IoT) devices require PCBs to work. The unique features and designs of IoT devices, however, can sometimes require new PCBs that can meet the unusual needs of IoT tech.

As demand for consumer electronics grows, driven by new markets like the IoT market, these board innovations may become even more important.

Unique Design Requirements for IoT Devices

IoT devices have a few unique needs that may require unique PCBs as a result.

How Industry 4.0 and Automation Grew the World's Economy

The fourth industrial revolution is all about automation and the internet of things (IoT). Industry 4.0 drives innovation and introduces new ways for people to be more productive. It changes the scope of everything from the types of jobs available to how humans perform those tasks. 

The World Economic Forum found connectivity has reached a global scale. There are approximately 8.5 billion devices connected to the IOT. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the need for automation and remote work, advancing the IOT faster than expected.

Technology Trends Improving Customer Experience in 2020

As technological advancement continues to reshape the world and every industry in the business sector, entrepreneurs and leaders find themselves at a crossroads. Do you continue doing what you always did and hope that money will keep rolling in, or do you capitalize on the modern trends and pioneer the integration of technology to set the stage for growth and expansion in the future? For an experienced business leader, the decision is simple. Leveraging technology to push your company forward is one of the best ways to ensure future growth, and of course, the best way to improve customer experience across the board.

How IoT Is Improving the Health Care Industry

There was once a time when medical professionals didn't have a database of facts at their fingertips. There was no disease contact tracing or access to the latest information. Doctors and nurses had to do the best they could with the information at hand. Thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT), the landscape of health care is vastly different in the 21st century.

Trusted Computing Group accelerates cybersecurity innovation as world enters IoT era

Toronto, Canada, October 15, 2019 – Following 20 years of innovation and adoption of trusted computing standards and specifications, Trusted Computing Group is commemorating its 20th year anniversary whilst planning for the most critical time of all, the Internet of Things (IoT) era.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary at its Annual Members Meeting in Toronto, Canada, over 100 Trusted Computing Group member organizations are gathering to reflect on the critical progress TCG has made in improving secure computing across the world whilst identifying areas which need more action.

Why Smart Building Technology Is Here to Stay

For as long as anyone can remember, buildings have always been rigid, unintelligent things. Most are nothing more than a frame or structure used to provide shelter, a place of work or general space. However, as is evident from the advancement of modern technology, that’s soon to change with the next generation of structural areas.

Intelligent, more-aware buildings are being developed to offer unprecedented levels of energy and resource efficiency, organizational management, general optimization, and improved occupant health and productivity.

A one-size-fits-all approach will not be enough to secure the IoT, says TCG

San Jose, California, June 26, 2019 – Securing the Internet of Things (IoT) is something which cannot be done with a one-size-fits-all approach – and every kind of connected object must be assessed individually, the Co-chair of Trusted Computing Group’s (TCG) Embedded Systems Work Group said today.

Speaking on the second day of Embedded Technologies Expo and Conference 2019, Steve Hanna highlighted how the growing trend for greater connectivity puts everyday objects at risk of exploitation and makes mission critical systems in businesses and Governments more vulnerable to attacks.
