2018 will be the biggest IoT year yet according to IBM's predictions! "I had the chance to speak to Bret Greenstein, VP of IBM's Watson IoT Consumer Business, who highlighted four key trends. Interestingly three of those trends were around convergence with other distinct yet highly correlated technologies." The first convergence he spoke about was with artificial intelligence, which he thinks will make IoT more productive. He also thinks that more CPU power will be sent to front-facing elements. Lastly, he said that Blockchain will add an important layer of security to IoT.
