IoT can be used to address many issues / problems what we face today, and one of the major ones faced around the world is water conservation. President and Chief Strategy Officer of Samsung Electronics Young Sohn believes that the industry can use the Internet of Things (IOT) in addressing these major challenges faced by the world today.
“As an industry we must join together to use the power of the IOT to overcome the challenges posed by issues such as demographic aging of the population, water shortages, increased traffic congestion, pollution and major health problem,” the president said Sohn. “We need to create a powerful open platform that will utilize the information generated by the IOT to develop new insights and new approaches to meet the challenges we face as a society.”
Samsung Artik is an open platform that includes hardware, software, development board, driver, set of tools, advanced security features and connectivity to build cloud-connected device IOT quickly.
