2. Internet of Everything Use Cases
In this episode, the second of our 3-part miniseries introducing Internet of Everything principles, we dive into examples of sensors and devices at work. There are quite a few compelling IoE initiatives across industries that we cover. For this episode, we focused on healthcare devices and consumer “life & home” sectors, where some great innovation is occurring.
We understand that this episode is relatively long, so we created a list of topics discussed and times associated with them. In parenthesis, there will be a “$” followed by the ticker symbol of the company discussed. We encourage you to listen to the entire episode, but if you have limited time or are simply not interested in some of the examples, feel free to skip around.
