The ""Internet of Things"" (IoT) is the next big and imminent thing as businesses start to collect data from devices ranging from mobile phones to custom devices. The independent communication between different connected devices can be used to optimise operations, reduce costs, boost productivity and more importantly, promote financial inclusion among developing countries. Within the last few years, the usage of devices has increased from millions to billions and the amount of time spent on these devices has been steadily rising. Students will learn about the functionalities of how IoT will affect the way we work, play and live.
