We hope you have enjoyed this look at the Internet of Things.

This week, we have looked at the context of IoT and technologies that have the same pattern but might be applied in different places, such as industrial or health settings.

Your task

Has your opinion changed about the importance of IoT? Do you think it is a gimmick or an important change in the way people adopt technology? Do you think it can really be one of the drivers of the fourth industrial revolution?
