Internet of Things

The phenomenon of connected machines is sometimes called the Internet of Things, the Internet of Anything, the Internet of Everything, or M2M (machine to machine). But no matter what the name, the growth of technology related to objects, which never before were network- and computer-enabled, is projected to have far-reaching technological, societal, and economic impact.

The strongest examples of the impact of the Internet of Things are in the industrial sector. Embedded software, sensors, and network connectivity promises to improve the way factories, data centers, oil wells, and cities, airplanes, cars, and even homes are maintained because data can be collected continuously with alerts issues proactively to prevent failures and outages.

According to Cisco's Internet Business Solutions Group, 50 billion devices will be connected by 2020, up from 2010's 12.5 billion. By 2020, data production will be 44 times greater than it was in 2009, and by 2020, more than one-third of the data produced will live in or pass through the cloud, according to Computer Sciences Corp.

Data modeling has always had a push-me/pull-you relationship in the IT world. The idea of complete logical and physical data models, insightful definitions, coherent data flow diagrams, and other related informational caches is always desirable. However, far too often, the expectation is that these activities take virtually no time to create. When the expenditure of resources goes beyond a certain level, the activities are jettisoned or otherwise given the short shrift. Actually, getting code in place is viewed as the only evidence of true progress.

Most times, if asked, I will rattle off, without hesitation, a list of ways AI is being applied along with all the ways it can go wrong. You may also get bit of a diatribe about why speaking of AI in the royal sense (i.e., "the AI") is always a bad idea. It's practically a (bad) party trick. Yet recently, when asked to characterize the primary ethical issues in AI, I had a perfect moment of mental blankness. It was an uncomfortable and instructive moment on many fronts.

AI has become pervasive across enterprises, and the drive is now on to push this potentially powerful intelligence out to the edge and network, where it can deliver insight and operational performance in real time. These days, no discussion of edge and IoT is complete without weighing the implications of AI. "If people think AI will stop at data centers, they have an unfortunate blind spot, because AI is likely to be deployed in some form at the edge," said Kevin Brown, SVP at Schnei­der Electric. "In my opinion, it will bring with it a host of new challenges regard­ing data privacy concerns, an increasing demand for power, and an infrastructure that will be even more broadly distrib­uted. Undoubtedly, we need to get ahead of these challenges."

A first and important step in being successful at almost any job or task is understanding oneself. This is true for engineers, modelers, or even architects. Do you know how to perform your tasks? Are you faster or slower than others doing the same tasks? Do you have more or less errors in your output than others? It seems that a rising number of people are so uncomfortable with competing that they may even avoid asking these kinds of questions of themselves; but this is not about competition, it is about understanding oneself, it is about being responsible, it is about holding oneself accountable.
