Re: IoT Companies
@freehe, it does become another complete sphere of new data - as a source at the more component level.  Put together in context with other data, it can truly become a complete picture of use, context, and results.  So it has invaluable ability to enhance the complete picture and add a new piece to the puzzle.

Re: Drones
@freehe, well there are good points.  I fully agree that it needs to contribute to the ecosystem; not disrupt or destroy.  I suppose we will have to "discover" if there are any environmental impacts or changes as a result of drone use or multiple drones being used.  Then we will know.

IoT Companies
This article brought awareness of IoT. I only thought of large companies such as Amazon, Telsa, etc. using IoT.

Now I realize that companies such as Sleep Number, and Target use IoT as welll.

Very insightful article. Thanks!

Drones
Drones underweather is a bit much. This will permanently disturb the underwater ecosytem and may affect the health and viability of underwater life.

What kind of radiation, magnetic waves, sensors, thermoenergy, etc. are emitted from drones underwater, how will this affect ecolife - short-term and long-term?

This makes me very nervous.

Amazon IoT
I think Amazon was doing IoT before there was an IoT such as the search inside feature when considering a book to purchase allowing users to view a small portion of content in a book or showing a list of recommended or similar products or products that other consumers purchased, the wish list, saving products viewed in your cart for later, etc.

Re: Amazon's dominance?
@mhhf1ve, I agree. Also speech recognition software does not take into account male and female voices, accents, speed of speaking, tones, those who speaking clearly and those who mumble, people who have speech impediments, etc.

We can see when using the automated attendant systems for major companies they fail miserably when using voice recognition.

I believe a lot of work needs to be done in the speech recognition industry.

Re: Amazon's dominance?
Google definitely has its own speech recognition technology that it build from scratch back when it experimented with Goog-411, its automated voice-based search service back before smartphones were really mainstream. Google collected a LOT of voice data when people called 1-800-GOOG-411 and used it to build a speech recognition platform.

I'm not so sure where Amazon is. I know it acquired a text-to-speech company for its Kindle book reader, but I don't know if it develops its own speech recognition tech or if it licenses it or has a bit of both going on like Apple does.

Apple uses Nuance, but I'm sure it is also devleoping its own in-house tech that could replace it. I also suspect that Nuance only powers some of Siri, and Apple does some custom stuff to make Siri its own, too.

Health and easier living
I am especially excited about the health based applications and the lawn mower!The health monitoring and rehabilitiation apps should improve the quality of life for many and the lawnmower should free people's time to do more meaningful things rather than mow the grass!

Re: Amazon's dominance?
I had always thought Google and Amazon had developed their own voice recognition technology. I do know that Apple uses Nuance, but that may just be because the company couldn't buy that technology outright...
