Intel expects 50 billion connected devices to be in use globally by 2020, that breaks down to roughly six internet connected devices for each person on the planet and that’s one reason why Intel’s Managing Director of the Internet of Things Group Bridget Karlin says, ‘IoT is not just a futuristic trend, it’s here to stay.’ For Intel, IoT is about connecting devices, sharing data and enabling analytics that can help users make decisions in real time. In healthcare, Karlin said medical professionals can make patient care decisions in real time. ‘Our approach at Intel is to build security in at the silicon level and move that all the way up through the device to the software. Because, if you think about it, it’s a lot harder if you have a thermostat at home to put in a security patch as opposed to having it built in at the beginning.’ TheStreet’s Rhonda Schaffler has details from the Milken Global Conference in Los Angeles.
