What Are Smart Devices?
Smart devices are all of the everyday objects made intelligent with advanced compute, including AI and machine learning, and networked to form the internet of things (IoT). Smart devices can operate at the edge of the network or on very small endpoints, and while they may be small, they are powerful enough to process data without having to report back into the cloud. They range from sensors to refrigerators and wearables to container transportation, capable of running autonomous workloads.
Smart devices can be combined to bring intelligence to both objects and spaces, such as smart homes and buildings, and can help automate processes and controls. They can be used in almost any industry, from smart manufacturing to healthcare, helping to improve efficiency and optimize operations.
