What we know about IoT Security?

IoT Security

What is Internet of Things (IoT)?

We read a lot about IoT, but not clear what exactly it means, although we know about its definition so here we explain in simple terms. IoT is basically connecting of computing devices, mechanical, digital machines, objects, and people with one another. Ex: wirelessly connecting devices such as smart speakers i.e. our very own Amazon Alexa or Google Home, smart TVs, Apple Watch, internet-connected baby monitors, video doorbells, and even toys, CCTV camera’s controlled by smartphones.

What is IoT Security?

The technology that is concerned with safeguarding the connected devices and networks in the internet of things (IoT).

What is the difference between IoT and AI?

 IoT is a concept based on the idea of everyday physical objects with the ability to communicate directly over the InternetArtificial Intelligence (AI), on the other hand, is an area of computer science to create machines to do intelligent things the way humans do, or possibly even better.

How to safeguard our IoT from the breachers or attackers?

There are sensor-based things have minimal computing resources, and the opportunities for antivirus, encryption and other forms of protection within things are more restricted.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) to combat with COVID19

Artificial Intelligence

AI technology to be applied during this epidemic time of COVID19 as it can be most effective by the brainstorming of IT leaders and Medical Superintendents.

Question which arises here is how?

As per a recent press release published by Gartner which was closely monitored by our DocTooLss technical content team where it said that  “CIOs and CDOs in governmental and healthcare organizations, should leverage AI in five core areas to improve decision making during the coronavirus pandemic, according to Gartner, Inc.

The five areas where the AI will combat with COVID19 are:

  • Early Detection and Epidemic Analysis
  • Containment    
  • Triage and Diagnosis
  • Healthcare Operations
  • Vaccine Research & Development (R&D)

Some pointers which we think we should know about:

Early Detection and Epidemic Analysis: AI technique is all about to understand, analyse, and predict where the virus is spreading or slowing down.

If by AI automatic tracking of citizens who are the carriers of this pandemic COVID19 can be tracked down via their mobile phone locations and public facial recognition and backtracking the movement of people to identify the source of the virus. Ex: India which has recently made it compulsory for its citizens to download Aarogya Setuapplication on their mobiles.

Containment  : With the news breaking in to apply Lockdowns around the world, with one message being spread as an anthem i.e. stay-at-home, be safe.

So here AI could act as behaviour analytics in reading the dynamics of human behaviour.

Law enforcement can predict where and when people may not adhere to stay-at-home orders or social distancing through predictive enforcement and dispatch enforcement units accordingly.” as quoted by Gartner .

Triage and Diagnosis: AI-enabled self-triage has helped patients including virtual health assistants, in identifying people if they possibly are infected and if they infected then what can be the next steps for its treatment.

Healthcare Operations: AI plays an important role in distributing evenly the healthcare operations and hospital resources by making the availability of qualified medical staff, materials and equipment as allocated by their healthcare CIOs and CDOs.

Vaccine Research & Development (R&D): AI graphs and Natural-Language Processing (NLP) which is used to identify findings, procedures, medications, allergies and participants. The test on humans such as the plasma therapy which is still not a treatment but going on trials on the patients of COVID19.

Healthcare CIOs and CDOs should explore every avenue of AI to fight COVID-19 using an ongoing and systematic process of AI application identification and prioritization as quoted by Gartner .
