IEEE Article Highlights the AREA’s IoT/AI/AR Convergence Research Project
Many experts believe that the convergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Augmented Reality (AR) will have a lasting, positive impact on process-driven industries, such as manufacturing, oil and gas, mining, and energy. Key benefits will include improvements in efficiency and reduced downtime.
To explore the opportunities and challenges of convergence, the AREA conducted a member-funded research project on the subject. Now, the IEEE has published an article on the AREA research authored by AREA Executive Director Mark Sage and Saverio Romeo, Associate Lecturer at Birkbeck College who conducted the research project about these emerging technologies and their impact on innovation and policy.
The article discusses potential benefits of convergence, a proposed architecture, and the key barriers to its implementation. Read the article here and learn more by watching an AREA webinar on the subject here.
