1989 marked a year when “The World Wide Web” was launched. Then, a huge number of machines were connected.
When GPS became viable between 1994 to 2000 the creation of unfathomable data happened along with the connectivity of network devices. An era when the term “Internet of Things” was first coined by Kevin Ashton, co-founder of Auto-ID Center at MIT.
As Ashton postulates, “If we had computers that knew everything there was to know about things, using data they gathered without any help from us, we would be able to track and count everything and greatly reduce waste, loss, and cost.”
