IoE and IoT are acronyms that are familiar to me – when I use them with friends and family, they have a big question mark on their face (I learned how to read question marks on faces during my time teaching at universities in Japan.).
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or “things” embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data.
The fact is that there are lots of those networks of connected physical objects already out there
– list of countries by IoT devices online per 100 inhabitants
… and they estimate that more than 30 billion devices will be wirelessly connected to the Internet of Things by 2020!
That is why we need a digital agenda – we need to make sure that this growing number of networks are reliable and secure.
