Speech Title: How Will the Internet of Things (IoT) Impact E-commerce Business?
Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects, using integrated sensors and other devices, collects and transmits data. The collected data is then analyzed to optimize products, services, and procedures. The IoT has become an integral part of our daily lives through applications such as public safety, intelligent tracking in transportation, industrial wireless automation, personal health monitoring, health care for the aged community, E-Commerce, and E-Business. IoT is expected to have a huge impact on e-commerce businesses. Experts estimate that as of now, there are 23 billion connected devices, and by 2020 it would reach 30 billion devices. As more sensors get connected and gain smart features, more data will be gathered to enhance the consumer experience. This talk aims to introduce the foundations of IoT and its impact on E-Commerce Business.
