Internet of Things (IoT) Fundamentals

Overview

Internet of Things (IoT) is an advanced automation and analytics system which exploits networking, sensing, big data, and artificial intelligence technology to deliver complete systems for a product or service. These systems allow greater transparency, control, and performance when applied to any industry or system. It is hard to imagine life without your smartphone. The explosion of embedded and connected smart devices, systems and technologies in our lives has created an opportunity to connect every ‘thing’ to the internet. The resultant data collection and connectivity has created efficiencies and solutions previously dreamt up only in science fiction stories. This is disrupting and transforming every industry around the world. IoT is an extensive field where anyone from electronics, computer science or mechanical domain can find an opportunity. As this industry grows, more software engineers, more data scientists; and more product managers will be required. The right time to be IoT-ready is now. This course will show you the scope of the IoT, and reveal underlying principles and architecture of its networks, devices, programming, data, and security. You will learn how an idea can become a viable, workable IoT product and be able to generate your own IoT ideas and design and/or support their development.
