25 billion connected things will be used by 2021: Gartner

The number of related items used will reach 25 billion By 2021, from 14.2 billion In 2019, according to Gartner forecast on Friday.

As the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to expand, the need for a governance framework to ensure proper behavior in the creation, storage, use and deletion of IoT-related information will become increasingly important, Gartner said in his report entitled "Strategic Trends and Internet Technologies by 2023."

"IoT will continue to offer new opportunities for digital business innovation for the next decade, many of which will be allowed with new or improved technologies," said Nick Jones, Vice President of Research at Gartner.

"CIOs with innovative IoT trends have the opportunity to drive digital innovation in their business," Jones added.

Until 2023, it is expected that new special purpose brands will reduce the energy consumption required for a network of neurons (DNNs), allowing new edge architectures and integrated DNN operations to low IoT endpoints, the report said.

This will support new features such as sensor data integrity and speech recognition included in low cost devices with batteries.

"Now most IoT endpoint devices use conventional processor chips while ARM low-power architectures are particularly popular, but traditional command sets and memory architectures do not fit into all the tasks that need to perform the endpoints," he said. Jones.

"For example, DNN performance is often limited by the bandwidth of memory instead of processing power," he added.
