The Internet of Things is becoming a reality. Factories are being outfitted with sensors, temperature monitors, and other data gathering devices. In agriculture, farms are becoming more efficient thanks to soil monitoring devices and automated pesticide regulation. In our homes, refrigerators, alarm clocks, and mirrors are becoming “smart”.
Steve Busby joins the show today to talk about the big picture: how the Internet of things works, from data ingestion to processing to feedback. Steve works at Microsoft in the Azure IoT division, and he discusses the problems which companies are having and the solutions that are available today–and where we are going in the future.
