Infographic of the Week – IoT – The Next Big Thing…or Just a Fantasy

The Internet of Things (IoT) is hailed as the next big thing as Billions of connected devices share the data with each other and open new realms of possibility in bringing us all closer together…or will it?  I can’t help but think of a future that includes a SkyNet and that machines will dominate our very existence when I think of just how much we rely on the technology around us to do every day things.

This week’s Infographic comes to you from Cognizant and is directly related to their recent White Paper titled Reaping the Benefits of the Internet of Things.  With $14.4 Trillion at stake (yes that is the 12 zero number) I wonder if there is any stopping this juggernaught and if it really be the great new beginning for humanity?  I am all for tech…don’t get me wrong but this just seems all a little too good to be true…at least when looking at it without consequences…but then again…I have read a bit too much Science Fiction in my day so this could be a little paranoia or is it???
