IoT as a Key Enabler to Singapore’s Smart Nation Vision

Low Teck Seng

Singapore has set its ambitions high to be the world’s first Smart Nation. IoT plays a critical role in helping us realise this vision. IoT is not just about being connected to multiple devices – it is about designing connected systems to deliver real value to individuals and organisations in a secure and equitable manner. IoT is a key enabler in improving our lives, helping to deliver more responsive public services, efficient work processes and better living experiences.

The Internet of Nothing and The Internet of Things

Nahum Gershon
