To describe 2015 as a watershed year for Digi International is almost selling it short. A fire wiped out much of its Thai-based production capacity, the company appointed a new CEO and re-structured its management team, it sold a major business unit, acquired a new company, and re-vitalised its finances.
What is normal?
It’s important to remember there is no silver bullet in security, and there is no evidence at all that tools such as ML and AI can solve the problem. ML is good at finding similarities between things (such as spam emails), but it is not so good at locating anomalies.
When did we first start connecting things?
A long time ago. Our ancestors were stringing together beads and shells around the time that language was invented.
A recurring claim at security conferences is that “security is a big data / machine learning (ML) / artificial intelligence (AI) problem”. This is unfortunately wildly optimistic, and wrong in general. While certain security problems can be addressed by ML/AI algorithms, in general the problem of detecting a malicious actor amidst the vast trove of information collected by most [...]
Microsoft’s new Azure IoT Hub is reportedly designed to provide an easy, secure way to connect, provision and manage billions of IoT devices sending and receiving trillions of messages per month.
Inmarsat has joined the LoRa Alliance, dedicated to developing a global standard for the Internet of Things (IoT).
Active Assisted Living
Elderly people represent an ever-growing proportion of the population. By 2025, there will be 820 million people aged 65 and older globally. The shift in demographics towards an ageing population will make it impossible to keep everyone who needs care in hospital.

Recognising the endless possibilities the Internet of Things (IoT) can bring to our economy, a consortium of London universities, NGOs and government agencies have pooled their resources into a £24 million IoT research hub in the capital, fortifying London as a global IoT hub.
Connected safety and security systems and devices with remote monitoring capabilities are expanding their share of the global smart home market. A survey in the UK in July 2015 identified security as the second most important of five key drivers for the connected home, after smart energy. The BI Intelligence research company estimates that by 2019 home security systems will account for 38% [...]
Cisco has moved to snap up privately-held Jasper Technologies with a planned acquisition for US$1.4 billion. Frost & Sullivan believes this to be as much as 20 times the company’s annual revenue in 2015, says Frost & Sullivan’s Sheridan Nye.
