Being so, the IoT is a giant network of connected “things” whereby the relationship will be between people-people, people-things, and things-things, thereby providing access to information and data never seen before in history, and with use of artificial intelligence (AI), we are entering a new era, termed as Industry 4.0. This will complete change the way we live ! This is what I would call a technologicial revolution cubic (3) TM !
