In today’s information age, where we handle and share thousands of data in our daily lives, new technologies and analytical methods are emerging to help manage and understand them, transforming them into useful and valuable information.
These are the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Two very important elements individually, but which gain greater strength when combined, giving rise to the Artificial Intelligence of Things or Artificial Intelligence of Things.
In the following, we will delve into its definition and purpose and the advantages of its use and applications.
What is AIoT?
AIoT or Artificial Intelligence of Things, is the union of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT). This technology combines the interconnectivity of devices to the Internet for data collection, with the endowment of machines with learning, reasoning and planning typical of Artificial Intelligence.
In other words, AIoT makes it possible to collect and analyze data to make sense of it, and thus perform more precise and efficient operations that can be improved autonomously thanks to the learning and adaptation capacity applied to machines and information systems.
Objective of Artificial Intelligence of Things
The main objective of this technology is to maximize the benefits of IoT by relying on Artificial Intelligence.
IoT devices generate huge amounts of data, so applying Artificial Intelligence to them makes it possible to get the most out of them and make sense of all this information. This enables systems to self-correct, adapt and continuously improve.
This results in intelligent solutions for cities, industry, the health and transportation sectors, among others. It should also be noted that other advantages of AIoT are the ease of use, privacy and security it offers.
Advantages and benefits of AIoT
The use of AIoT brings many more advantages and benefits than just passively employing assets connected to the Internet of Things. Applying Artificial Intelligence is the spark that gives life to autonomous and differentiating processes:
- Increased operational efficiency. AI-integrated IoT devices can analyze data to reveal patterns and insights and adjust system operations to be more efficient.
- Real-time adjustment capability. Data can be generated and analyzed to identify points of failure, allowing the system to make adjustments as needed.
- Data analysis performed by AI. Employees do not have to spend as much time monitoring IoT devices, saving money and time.
- Scalability. The number of devices connected to an IoT system can be increased to optimize existing processes or introduce new functions.
Although not yet a well-known term, AIoT is already present in many areas around us, both in business and in our personal lives.
Smart Buildings take great advantage of this technology. In recent years, sensors connected to IoT are already being used to manage lighting, supplies, air conditioning, access, among others. In combination with AI algorithms, energy management and efficiency plans can be established, creating more comfortable and safer environments for humans as well as sustainable ones.
As in smart buildings, we can elevate this technology to a much broader control, cities. In a Smart City, it is possible to centrally control areas and services of the city such as traffic, transport, charging points, waste management, lighting, parking areas or environmental quality, among many others.
The sensors, placed in each area or service, send data through IoT, which are collected and processed with Artificial Intelligence, establishing patterns and trends that, after analysis, allow predicting and/or anticipating future flows and demands, allowing cities to be more efficient and reduce environmental impact.
In the industrial sector, the possibilities are much broader. Some of the benefits of implementing an AIoT system include: greater efficiency, higher productivity, resource savings and even reduction of CO2 emissions. Moreover, this technology does not discriminate against any sector and can be used by all types of companies, from SMEs to multinational industries.
IoT systems interconnected in real time generate large amounts of data, which can be processed and analyzed by AI algorithms, converting them into valuable information, allowing managers and middle management to make better decisions based on more accurate data.
