Question Description

between 15 and 20 pages (assuming 250 words per page)

The first part of the deliverable will be an in-depth coverage in the form of a portfolio of all aspects of your emerging technology.

Your portfolio needs to contain, at least, all of these points:

  • a description of your information technology, in both technical and non-technical (e.g. Dilbert's Boss/elderly relatives) terms
  • why you think the world needs your information technology - in other words, "what business/personal/environmental/health/financial, etc. problem are you trying to solve?"
  • what sorts of users you envision having
  • what (if any) current information technology it disrupts, and how (this could include inefficient methods currently in use to solve the problem you've posed)
  • how you would integrate your information technology into existing technology systems
  • your information technology's effects in each (and all) of the following areas:
    • economic/business
    • social/interpersonal
    • cultural
    • environmental (include animal testing stance, if applicable)
    • ethical (include intellectual property considerations overall)
    • (if relevant) political/geopolitical
  • a marketing plan, including social media presence. If you are considering crowdfunding (Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, Quirky, etc. this is where you would address that)

Creativity in the deliverable is a requirement, so include things like images (Photoshopped is fine), staged press releases, and fake breaking news clips, for instance. Pseudonyms are fine for this deliverable.

Also, because this is a new technology, you will need to go through the motions of filling out a pretend patent application, without actually submitting said patent application (or paying any money to the government or, worse, lawyers). It is perfectly fine to make up data for your patent application. The USPTO has patent applications, but good luck figuring out that system - you are free to improvise your own patent application (see the sample project for patent ideas - and feel free to copy that one's patent documentation entirely)

If you will be implanting/ingesting/injecting the technology you will need to go through the motions of getting FDA approval, as well (don't submit anything to the actual FDA - this is pretend). Again, make this up, based on things you can find on the Internet (the FDA site is a good start)

Pretend this portfolio will be shown to venture capitalists or angel investors. You need to convince them your information technology is worth investing in. Completeness in terms of addressing the issues mentioned above is the primary goal; creativity in doing so helps communicate your points better. Show your professor (and the class) that you've learned something during the term.

Because this project incorporates non-text elements, it's hard to give an exact page or word count. If it were to be completely text based, you would be expected to turn in between 15 and 20 pages (assuming 250 words per page). Don't stress about word counts or page counts, though - use the amount of space you need to address all the points. If you're proud of what you're turning in chances are you're doing the right thing.

If you can find sources to back up what you're saying, give those credit, using a consistent and complete style. As part of the creativity aspect of the project feel free to make up sources and cite them, too And also.make PPT Presentation.

Internet of Things


Internet of Things

The world has over the past decades been increasingly embracing technology. The Pew
Research Center reports that 24% of teenagers in the United States are constantly online. 88% of
this demographic has access to cell phones(Lenhart, 2016). In 2015, an estimated 68% of US
adults had a smartphone. In 2013, the figure was 35%, the statistics are indicative of the growth of
technology device ownership in the US and globally(Anderson, 2016). The usage of smartphones
indicates only one area of modern life where technology has become essential. As the world
becomes increasingly globalized, the need for new technologies has risen. These technologies aim
to fill the gap between the needs of the modern man that the currently available technologies
cannot match. These are referred to as emerging technologies. Some of these technologies are still
in the concept stage, while other are ready for mass roll out. The paper, therefore, will delve into
the topic of emerging technologies and choose one for minute evaluation. The paper will,
therefore, discuss the Internet of Things (IoT) as one of these new technologies.
Internet of Things (IoT)
The Internet of Things is an emerging technology in the area of information technology. IoT draws
its foundational concepts from the Internet. The Internet is the worldwide system that connects
multiple computer systems(Mattern & Floerkemeier, 2016).



The IoT makes use of this conception of connecting “things” that are not computers. The Internet
of Things, therefore, refers to the platform or system that allows for the interconnection of devices.
These devices e.g. electronics are embedded with computer chips that allow them to receive and
interpret instructions from a central entity.The IoT can work where things are connected with
sensors, electronics, and software; this allows the platform to sense devices and control them. The
devices can communicate over an existing network infrastructure. The device can, therefore,
receive commands and similarly communicate them(Vermesan & Friess, 2013).



Why use IoT?
The essence of the IoT is, therefore, to connect devices to a single platform. This would, in theory,
allow for automation of tasks thus increasing efficiency and reducing wastage. E.g. In a house
where devices are connected through the IoT, the alarm clock would trigger the coffee maker to
brew coffee. The door would automatically open for family members. The lights would turn on
when a vehicle approaches. The fridge would send a text to inform the owner that a given food is
about to expire. These products would be connected to a single platform; they would be equipped
with the necessary sensors and software to allow them to communicate and exchange
information(Santucci, 2016).
The use of IoT is simply to create efficiency by allowing devices to communicate. The result
would be reduced human input in a number of industries. Research has noted that IoT can be rolled
out in a large number of industries e.g. Media, Infrastructure Management, Manufacturing, Energy
management, healthcare, home automation, Transportation and Consumer application. ABI
Research estimates that at least 30 billion devices will be interconnected through the IoT platform



by 2020(ABI Research, 2013). The IoT bridges the gap between human capabilities and human
needs. The platform allows devices to proactively pre-empt a need and thus take active steps to
assuage that need.
IoT can add value to the whole spectrum of the average human life. This includes; business,
environment, health, financial and personal.
IoT can support urban traffic management by allowing vehicles to communicate with a central
entity. This entity could then be capable of analyzing the information it receives with regard to
traffic patterns. As such, it can regulate the flow of traffic to ensure that traffic flow is optimized.
IoT can also improve healthcare delivery globally. The advent of wearable devices has allowed
manufacturers to create add-on applications that allow the user to effectively monitor their health.
Where such devices note a change in the normal rhythm of the body, they can inform the wearer. In
some devices, they can detect potential fatal heart attacks and call 911. In manufacturing, IoT can
be used to control the flow of inventory. Computer systems can detect the usage of inputs and
where inputs are depleted, automatically order for more with minimal human involvement. The
result is a streamlined work environment where efficiency isencouraged(Thompson & Mattalo,
Problem solved by the Internet of Things.
The IoT solves the problem of inefficiency in the different industries it is utilized. The internet of
things provides the efficiency of machines to humans by allowing sharing of information across
multiple devices thus ensuring that these devices utilize finite resources optimally. In
manufacturing, sensors across the production line allow managers to consistently have
information with regard to production. They can, therefore, ...
