What are your thoughts about AR, VR and Internet of Things (IoT)?
IoT, AR and VR play very big role especially now during COVID-19.
To begin with, IoT is a network of connected devices that can communicate with each other, exchange data and provide automation of tasks. We can use IoT to sense (collect data through sensors) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to make sense out of this data. The new name of this convergence is the AI of Things (AIOT). Needless to say, to achieve the full potential of IoT and AI a combination with other emerging technologies may be required in certain cases, like edge computing, digital twin, augmented/virtual reality (AR, VR), and drones.
We can all agree that there are three main themes (needs) until we find the new vaccine for covid-19. These themes are:
Work from home (or do everything from a safe place)
IoT and AI can serve all these three needs very well.
What do you think will be the future of Mobile technology?
The $188 billion mobile app industry is constantly changing. Now, people want more than standalone apps with singular experiences. The overall trend that’s most important to note here is that apps are clearly becoming more integrated with our daily lives than ever before. So, whenever you get hung up in the development details, there is one thing to keep in mind as your “big picture” guiding force.
