Listen to Pierre Bourque’s interview from Blockchain Radio with Dilip Sarangan, IoT Global Research Director at Frost & Sullivan, as he explores the impact of the coronavirus on the Chinese economy and the “holy grail” of IoT opportunity in the long term. According to Dilip, IoT can help by providing an early warning system to curb the spread of infectious diseases. Having scanners available to any passenger that comes from domestic and international airports is very important as it can detect whether passengers have elevated temperatures or symptoms. Over the last few years, there has been a huge push to migrate the data analytics capabilities of IoT from the cloud to the edge (on these devices themselves). This real-time information and intelligence can detect very quickly the infected people in order to quarantine and avoid spreading the coronavirus.
