• Internet of Things Security: Should We Trust It?

    What would you do if your car suddenly started driving away without you? Seems a bit farfetched and you probably haven’t given it much thought. But if IoT companies aren’t vigilant, it could soon become a reality. What is IoT? The Internet of Things (IoT) is a technology concept whereby developers seek to expand the network of interconnected internet-enabled devices. These devices are ‘smart’ to the extent that they are able to communicate with each other. Click here for an in depth internet of things definition and the future of IoT.
  • The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the use of Internet of Things (IoT) in the manufacturing and processing industries. The IoT is big data and machine learning harnessing sensory data, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and automation technologies.
  • Technology pervades everything. We live in a world where you can catch an Uber to your AirBnB, thereupon you place an order on UberEats and watch the latest episode of Game of Thrones on HBO Now while browsing social media. And while taxis, hotels, home delivery, and shows about iron thrones are nothing new, how we are consuming these services certainly is.
  • Provided IoT devices can address its major concern, security, there’s every chance it will dominate our everyday lives. With machines taking on more responsibility, opportunities for humans may decrease. Jobs and growth is a phrase we’ve heard a lot of recently, but was that just an empty promise? In the short term, IoT devices are not yet evolved enough to replace humans when it comes to the majority of tasks. But tracking the growth of IoT technology and where it’s currently at, it may not be too long before it can do what we can.
  • Technology has come a long way since Pong dominated my afternoon timeslot and it’s about to go even further. If you’re not yet aware of the Internet of Things (IoT) revolution, it’s time to read up. IoT is obsessed with making everything ‘smart’. An Internet of Things definition would tell you the phrase is a reference to an expanding network of interconnected internet-enabled devices. Sounds a bit ambiguous, right?
  • A hackathon is a weekend where programmers, domain experts, designers and problem owners collaborate extensively to create a prototype and pitch an idea. Over the past weekend, Working Mouse and MEC Mining entered a team into the Unearthed hackathon. The event was held at River City Labs in the Fortitude Valley, Brisbane.
