The Internet of Things is transforming the way we do business and the way we live our lives. But this IoT transformation is an evolution, represented by three distinct phases: connecting the unconnected, creating smart and connected things, and building a software-defined autonomous world. With an estimated 85% of devices still unconnected, we have a tremendous opportunity to accelerate major technology breakthroughs and innovations that accelerate this evolution across the phases in a variety of market segments.
Abstract: Coming Soon
As autonomous cars prepare to hit the roads, a tidal wave of data will come with them. Today, the average person generates around 650 megabits of data per day. By 2020, an autonomous vehicle will produce approximately 4 terabytes of data per day. Autonomous vehicles will need to navigate new environments, continuously update high-precision maps, anticipate what other cars around them will do and learn from the collective knowledge of other autonomous vehicles, which will be stored in the cloud.
Semiconductor devices have achieved tremendous performance as an individual component such as the memory, logic and analog, making it possible to have information storages more than an entire library, mathematical calculations much faster than a team of geniuses and pixel resolutions exceeding human vision.
