Bernard Marr in Forbes –
Individually, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are powerful technologies. When you combine AI and IoT, you get AIoT—the artificial intelligence of things. You can think of internet of things devices as the digital nervous system while artificial intelligence is the brain of a system.
When Artificial Intelligence is added to the Internet of Things it means that those devices can analyze data and make decisions and act on that data without involvement by humans.
