The information technology revolution has significantly changed the way in which people interact with the world. Among other things, it has allowed us to access information about almost anything instantaneously and has given us the ability to easily purchase goods without leaving our homes. The Internet of Things is the next step of this revolution and will further transform the world by allowing us to connect our many "things" to the Internet.
