Internet of Things (IoT), also called SMART technology has taken the tech world by storm the last couple of years. Internet-connected devices are being used in innovative ways to improve quality of life for all people. IoT potentially offers a revolutionary, fully accessible and “smart” world by improving interaction between objects, their environment and people. While the main focus of IoT is to make the world smarter, it can only be achieved if the right information is accessible at the right time, through technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Assistive Technology (AT). The core principles of these futuristic technologies are buried in the history of UX throughout the 20th century and by going back to the basics, we can create a “smarter” new world.
