The IoT Factory is pleased to be associated with the Open Data Institute (ODI).
Like the ODI The IoT Factory believes that access to open data is a real benefit to everyone. The ability to bring together multiple data sets and provide meaningful insight into society is a central tenant of what The IoT Factory believes.
The view of many IoT practitioners and analysts is that there will be 20 Billion devices connected by 2020. The IoT Factory believes that this capability or as we call it, Hyper Granular Sensing will give us the unprecedented ability to create useful and meaningful data sets for everyone to use.
We focus on sector themes to bring open data’s benefits to specific areas of society and industry across the Data Spectrum
These sectors are:
Agriculture and nutrition
