About Talk

With IoT growing at a tremendous pace, it may soon be indispensable as the internet itself, spreading its wings to almost every domain. The internet of things (IoT) is a computing concept that describes the idea of everyday physical objects being connected to the internet and being able to identify themselves to other devices. Through sensors and pervasive connectivity, we expose ourselves to wide range of ideas that can make our day to day activities much easier…if we let them. Experts predict that by 2025, there will be as many as 75 billion connected IoT devices. Privacy is the biggest area of concern in this IoT Era.
