A recent survey on Twitter produced the following results:
It seems Samsung is perceived as a more important IoT player than Microsoft. Also, one third of the respondents believe that Microsoft will abandon the IoT arena. However, when Apple launched the iPad, Microsoft tried to come on the market with a similar product. After a quick failure, the company from Redmond understood its mistakes, took its time and brought Surface to the market.
The question is why Samsung is so strong and why it is perceived as so strong. After all, the Korean giant is best known as a mass producer, not a as a pioneer. IoT is a technology based on diversity. This contrasts with mass production.
My guess is that Microsoft is seen as an underdog. This could be a mistake from Samsung. The West coast IT company is known to make mistakes, but also recognized as a street fighter. And street fighters are good at wining matches.

Thumbs up, guys!
#IoT devices are like #Grothendieck’s work: they are associated with high value data, only we don’t know yet how important is the data. The problem of #BigData and all the data generated by autonomous devices connected to the internet of objects is the absence of standardization. IoT is a source of digital information organized in analog way: infinite or unspecified possibilities waiting to be identified and exploited to some extent.

This small guy can crawl under cars, climb steps, and hide in the bushes. Sounds scary ? It is no longer science-fiction. The video in the article is even more impressive.
The wheel is a revolutionary invention — as they say — but going back to basics sometimes opens new pathways. Robots that traverse terrain on legs are on the rise, most notably the Boston Dynamics Big Dog series of robots — and [Ghost Robotics]’ Minitaur quadruped aims to keep pace. One of [Ghost Robotics] founders, […]

By Nadia Sotnikova As someone working at an indie publishing agency, reading about robots that write news articles is terrifying and exciting at the same time. I am not a writer; I am a marketer, so the prospect of another major shakedown of the publishing industry makes me hope if not for a better […]
