Litigation Next: EDiscovery and the Industrial Internet of Things

March 15, 2018

The term Industrial Internet of Things—also known as the Industrial Internet or IIoT—represents a distinct and powerful subset of the more commonly known Internet of Things or IoT. Most simply understood, the Industrial Internet brings IoT technologies to high-infrastructure investment industries like manufacturing, power, transportation and even water. In operation, however, the Industrial Internet will transform a wide variety of industries and ultimately drive the next Industrial Revolution. Specifically, the Industrial Internet leverages technologies like machine learning, big data/data analytics, and sensor-driven, machine-to-machine communication to extract data from virtually every kind of industrial machinery.
