The Quick and Dirty Introduction to the Internet of Things

About the Book

It's what all the cool kids are playing with...

...but what exactly is the Internet of Things (IoT)?

IoT is a term for the ever-growing network of physical objects that are connected to the internet. These objects can include anything from home appliances and vehicles to wearable technology and industrial equipment.

The IoT is your smart light refrigerator. But it's also the inventory logistics system that connects your online shopping experience with the shipper who delivers your package a few hours later. And it's the sophisticated infrastructure that reduces congestion on your city's streets.

But what technologies drive it all? Should you be planning your own IoT deployment? Where should you turn for guidance with your next steps?

This book is a great place to begin!

Lloyd Kaufman is a pseudonym used by a long-time veteran of the IT and cloud computing industries.

A pseudonym? What's he trying to hide?

Nothing. It's really about focusing most of the attention on the book's primary author: GPT-3.

GPT-3 is a machine learning model developed by the private tech firm, OpenAI. It is a general-purpose model that can be used for a variety of tasks, such as natural language processing, computer vision, and machine translation.

Go on. You know you can't wait to see what an AI author can do.
