THE INTERNET OF THINGS (IoT) is quietly and surely continuing its progress to worldwide dominance, whether through consumer items like smart fridges and fitness trackers, or through tiny sensors added to objects used to monitor anything from the likelihood of an earthquake to stock inventory.
Here at The INQUIRER, we think that IoT is going to prove a game changer in the way we live and work, and we've teamed up with Intel, a key player in the IoT space, to explore every nook and cranny of the technology.
We hosted an online chat on Thursday 26 June with experts from Intel and The INQUIRER, to answer any burning questions you might have about IoT or just muse over any thoughts you wanted to share. You can catch up on all the comments and questions below.
This might cover anything from how IoT can be used to keep you healthy, build better offices or speed up journey times, or just to discuss the rumoured iWatch or whether to splash out £1,000 on Google Glass.
We also shared the results of our IoT research, based on the opinions and responses of INQUIRER readers, so you can find out what everyone is doing in this area, and how far behind or ahead your firm is by catching up on all the posts below.
