Article 1

The Nuclear Option

Stuart Sharrock

I used to be a nuclear physicist; still am presumably. I don’t know how you can stop being a nuclear physicist. Certainly you can stop being a practising nuclear physicist, as I did nearly half a century ago, but you can’t escape from the approach to problems and the outlook on life that a scientific training implants. Nuclear physics in particular instils an analytical methodology tempered by the realisation that the world of quantum mechanics is counterintuitive – you shouldn’t assume anything in a probabilistic world where entities can be in multiple places simultaneously.

 


Article 2

Key Considerations in the Development of an IoT Architectural Framework

Oleg Logvinov

The ongoing convergence of operations technology (OT) and information technology (IT) is playing a key role in driving IoT adoption across a wide range of industries. Information technology has been applied in operations increasingly over the past thirty years. It has been applied in operational equipment, and in more recent years information technology has been used to integrate operational departments such as manufacturing, order entry, accounts receivable and payable, general ledger, purchasing, warehousing, transportation and human resources. Still, that process faces its own issues, as the analyst firm Gartner claims, "The relationship between IT and OT groups needs to be managed better, but more importantly, the nature of the OT systems is changing, so that the underlying technology – such as platforms, software, security and communications – is becoming more like IT systems."

 


Article 3

Connected versus Intelligent Devices in the IoT – and in Saunas

Aapo Markkanen

One of the most profound questions affecting the Internet of Things at the moment is where the smarts in smart systems will reside. The first phase of the IoT – an extension from its terminological precursor, M2M – has been based on the premise that the device itself is rudimentary and any intelligence in it comes from the cloud level. Moreover, in many cases “intelligence” has not been a priority to begin with, and the application has been developed to deliver only remote control or servicing initiated by a human operator, without any real need to capture and process data.

 


Article 4

IoT: Future-proofing Device Communications

Scott Lofgren

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a real game-changer and has the potential to transform and improve our lives, bringing with it the combination of connected devices and intelligent data. The industry is already making strides towards increased interconnectivity with research and analysis firm, IDC, estimating that IoT spending will grow to $8.9 trillion by 2020. IDC also expects the installed base of the IoT to grow to 212 billion "things" globally by the end of 2020, which will include 30.1 billion installed "connected (autonomous) things" driven by smart systems that will be installed and collect data across both consumer and enterprise applications.
