What is Your Interest in the IoT?
InfoQ's research widget has been deprecated. It should continue to work however, and we hope to relaunch it at some point in the future.
According to a recent study by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PDF) the Internet of Things (IoT) will represent a “multi-trillion dollar industry in the near future.” Considering the current hype associated with this new trend and industry, InfoQ wants to evaluate the real adoption of IoT as seen by the software practitioners of our community. For our research we propose the following question:
What is your interest in the IoT?
- I'm thinking about an IoT hobby project
- I'm working on an IoT hobby project or have already done one or more
- I'm involved in an IoT project at my company
- I'm thinking about joining or creating a start-up for IoT
- Purely academic interest - I'm not expecting to use IoT for anything
- I'm not interested
involved in an IoT project at my company
Searching for potential IoT business collaborators or co-founders.
I'm new to this site. However, since the question was asked, I thought that I would say what I think. I'm a passionate entrepreneur interested in the Internet of Things and help organize a couple local IoT Meetup groups. I'm interested in home automation and how it can enable seniors to live at home longer. Also interested in learning more about the community and what other problems people are working on solving. I hope to hear from some of you.
