Recently IBM Watson announced a collaboration with Garmin Health, Guardhat, Mitsufuji, and SmartCone to improve worker safety in hazardous environments using Internet of Things (IoT) technology alongside IBM’s existing the Maximo Enterprise Asset Management Platform. These ideas could change IoT forever.
This week, we give thanks to IBM Watson for advancing the field of IoT. This company alongside Garmin Health, Guardhat, Mitsufuji, and SmartCone and have made a goal of improving the health and safety of workers in hazardous industries! The creative use and development of this AI enhanced technology will do wonders for all Internet of Things users and developers.
A Detailed Look
The new partnership of brands looks to use data from the workspace to monitor potential hazards. These hazards include heat, heights, and gas levels. Using Internet of Things technology, IBM is looking to improve the ability to tell whether workers are exposed to more risks than necessary.
Each of these companies understands that there are always risks involved when pushing the limits of technology. There is still the chance that these monitoring devices could collect data that could impact the privacy and dignity. Afterthought, IBM said that so long as they focused on health and safety most would agree that the benefits and lives saved outweigh the potential downsides.
Impacts on All of IoT
The creation of this idea and its acceptance among all the collaborating companies opens real doors for IoT developers to do more with AI. The internet of things is already doing so much good in the world, but these new technological advances will drive both Bursys and IBM to offer better tools that promote even more money and life-saving opportunities.
New applications and new custom software creations will allow for companies who once thought automation would only take away jobs to see that it can be used to help save the lives of workers rather than take their livelihood away. With this, Bursys’s products are often known for their ability to enhance a person’s work life rather than eliminate it. In summary, it’s all about focusing on improving output over minimizing costs.
As the months go by, we’re lucky to be seeing the real implications of AI in the business world. These new developments from IBM Watson, Garmin Health, Guardhat, Mitsufuji, and SmartCone serve as proof of concept that smart technology can help any industry. Further, that collaboration can result in more than a marketing campaign; they can create real life, life-saving technology for use in the most dangerous fields.
AI should help improve life and business. This is just one example of how AI-powered technology didn’t reduce or eliminate jobs. Instead, it was the cause of life-saving developments. Bursys is proud to be working in the Internet of Things field with IBM Watson.
We’re excited to see where they take this new technology. Alongside them, Bursys and the rest of the IoT field will continue to work to create new ideas for technology that could save lives, money, and businesses.
