The implications of the big data revolution are typically associated with fields such as insurance, finance, and security. As essential as they might be for our future, they are not always understood by the average consumer. But you don’t need to look for a loan or an insurance plan to witness the massive impact that data has had on society and sometimes a simple visit to a gadget shop is enough to notice how many aspects of daily life data has revolutionized.
Taking a look at the evolution of the gadget market, it’s clear that there is an upgrade from aesthetics to function. Modern gadgets are sleeker, smaller and easier to use. From cameras and music players to vacuums and alarm clocks, today’s gadgets are one step ahead in terms of personalization because they meet their original purpose in a way that’s relevant for the user. Made to fit in the connected IoT home, modern gadgets are more and more present in daily life and, according to Cisco’s annual Visual Networking Index, machine-to-machine connections will account for more than half of the world’s connected devices by 2022.
