4. Kirk Borne’s tweet on smart farming

Kirk Borne, principle data scientist at Booz Allen Hamilton, an information technology company, shared an article on smart farming, which is driven by IoT technology. The technologies available for present-day farmers under smart farming include sensor, communication systems, telematics, positioning, hardware and software systems, and data analytics solutions.

The IoT technologies involved in smart farming add value in all areas from growing crops to forestry by observing, diagnosing, deciding and implementing the required treatment for the crops.

IoT can also revolutionise farming through precision farming, which makes farming more efficient by giving accurate treatment to crops and cattle. Further, the technology can benefit the environment by making efficient use of water.

5. Tamara McCleary’s tweet on considerations for IoT deployments

Tamara McCleary, CEO of Thulium, a social media marketing and advertising company, shared an article on key factors to be considered for large scale IoT deployments. The article detailed that all possible alternatives should be considered, while planning an IoT project.

There are five pillars to consider for any IoT project including devices, connectivity, device management, data processing, and application. Any large scale IoT deployment must have a device with different technologies serving various purposes and providing connectivity regardless of environment constraints, the article added.

Selection of robust and flexible device management protocol that is regulated by open standards is the best option for IoT industry to build a comprehensive view with available data. A platform to control devices needs to be versatile enough to solve problems with different solutions, the article added.
