The Internet has transformed from its original form that connects computers utilized by humans to one that connects objects, sensors, and any foreseeable device in everyday life, giving rise to the “Internet of Things”. Coined by Kevin Ashton in 1999, the term “Internet of Things” (IoT) refers to this new Internet where devices generate data and communicate, interacting often without any human intervention. Industry and academia alike have exploited IoT in marketing and securing grants respectively, purporting numerous new futuristic IoT products and research as far-fetched as IoT storytelling!!! This talk aims to put some context into the different definitions of IoT, the research challenges, and hopefully make some sense out of IoT “non-sense”.
