Re: IBM
I think AI and IoT can go hand in hand in many senses like smart thermostats that learn what temperatures you like at what time of day.  IBM could also just be riding the wave of the Watson name.

Re: IBM
I would be curious to understand why IBM is basing this off of Watson. Isn't Watson an AI platform? Not sure what that would have to do with IoT. When I think of IoT I think of the opposite end of the specturm. IoT devices aren't really supposed to be all that smart.

If I were other companies I would be worried about IBM.  They have been running in the background for so long, but they are set to explode with IoT.  I think that Watson will change the IoT world as long as it doesn't get too smart for our own good.  "I don't think you want to change the temperature Dave."
