5G is a new beginning and partly a turning point, but certainly nothing less than a revolution

The 2019 International CES show started today in Las Vegas, and it will end on Friday, 11 January. CES is the world`s gathering place for those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years.

This is the global stage where next generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace, and its owned by Consumer Technology Association (CTA). This gathering attracts the worlds business leaders and pioneering thinkers.

I have been following Apple for decades and I expect them to be in Las Vegas this week. We all know that AI is the future, but how is Apple`s innovation when it comes to Smart home tech? It seems like they are falling behind in the Smart home race.

Both, Google and Amazon are now integrating Alexa and Google assistant into Smart home devices. Voice assistants are cropping up in all kinds of places at CES 2019 and what I think is a cool thing to have is both voice and touchscreen in the bathroom mirror.

This Smart Mirror allows you to access Google Assistant were you can check the weather and traffic, or stream some YouTube videos while you are fixing your hear before you are going out for your next date.

Its brilliant because you have only two hands and none of them are free. Youre fixing your hair right. So, while you`re fixing your hair, you just have to ask the mirror what time it is, what the weather is or when your next bus is coming. All this without using your hands.

Everything is connected and to do so you need 5G, which is enabling the Internet of Things (IoT). Cars, heating systems and even trash cans are becoming involved in the net. 5G is super fast and makes the IoT possible. 5G is 100x faster than 4G and 10x faster than the best home-subscriber broadband service.

You need 5G to run your new driverless car and it`s all based on a computer with GPS built-in it. 5G is nothing less than a revolution. It is in such capacities that it becomes clear why the technologies from 2G to 4G differ so radically from the fifth generation, and that is awaiting us is partly a new beginning and partly a turning point, but certainly nothing less than a revolution.

Hitachi expands globally

Internet of Things (IoT) will become the biggest business ever! You can read more about it in my article; The Internet of Things (IoT) dated September 3, 2014. Many companies will try to position them self in the new market. Hitachi is one of them.

Hitachi, Ltd is a diversified company. Information and Telecommunication System segment offers system integration services and automated teller machines. Electricity System segment offers power generation systems. Social and Industrial System segment offers industrial machinery.

Electronic Device and System segment offers liquid crystal displays. Construction segment offers hydraulic shovels and wheel loaders. High Functional Material segment offers electric wires and cables. Automotive System segment offers engine management and in-car information systems.

Hitachi

 

Japan`s $100 billion conglomerate see big opportunity in IoT and expect to earn billions in this business by 2020. Their goal is to enter this business by combining the technology capabilities of their subsidiary Hitachi Data Systems and data from millions of sensors that they already have installed in industrial equipment over the years.

Hitachi is not only trying to focus on industrial solutions but do what others are doing right now; focusing on smart cities and driverless cars. Connected healthcare systems is also a market they want to penetrate.

CEO Hiroaki Nakanishi said Hitachi need to change their business model rapidly.

Hitachi will move from a storage hardware company to a social innovation company. They will offer more IoT solutions and Nakanishi said; «We now need to commercialize these solutions to increase our revenue.»

Hitachi have what it takes to take a big stake in this market, but they need to change to a pure IoT company and try to use the sensor data they have today in their new components that they want to sell in the new market.

CEO Hiroaki Nakanishi is best known as a turnaround business leader, and Hitachi is now looking to pursue global expansion aggressively. Focusing only on becoming Japan`s No. 1 is not enough. Through acquisitions, they want to grow and be bigger in Europe, China and the Middle East.

Hitachi see big opportunities in Europe`s railway sector, and have a track record in the U.K. This is why the company is looking for more businesses to acquire and also enter into strategic partnerships to better penetrate the European market.

They recently inked an 809 million euro deal to acquire rail assets of Finmeccanica, and moved closer to its competitors like Siemens, Alstom and Bombardier in the rail signaling segment. Hitachi hopes the acquisition will help their expansion in Australia, New Zealand, India and the Middle East.

Hitachi is down -8% YTD. Market Cap is 33,33B, and P/E is 15,12. The stock Hitachi, Ltd (OTCMKTS: HTHIY) is trading at $69,00.

The Internet of Things (IoT)

I`ve always said to myself; «you don`t need things», but new things are coming in every day, week and month, and they all end up in the basement. I can tell you a little secret; my basement is packed! What am I gonna do with all the things I have down there?

Well, I can start a museum. In six days, I will have a new phone and that is a brand new iPhone 6. But, what about iPhone 1.2.3.4. and 5? And what about all the flat TV screens I have down there? And so many laptops. Computers, harddisc`s, old PC screens and my first iPod?

IoT2

All this is a part of an evolution. The big business today is The Internet of Things (IoT) and that is a vision. Most of the people have smart phones, but now everything will be smart things. We will be surrounded with smart phones, smart cars, clothes, homes, offices, streets and cities.

What is the concept Internet of Things (IoT)?

The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing-like devices within the existing Internet infrastructure. IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine communications (M2M) and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications.

IoT can refer to a wide variety of devices such as heart monitoring implants, biochip transporters on farm animals, automobiles with built-in sensors, or field operation devices that assist fire-fighters in search and rescue. Current market examples include smart thermostat systems and washer/dryers that utilize wifi for remote monitoring.

This is big business. According to Gartner, there will be nearly 26 million devices on the Internet of Things by 2020. ABI Research estimates that more than 30 billion devices will be wireless connected to the Internet of Things (Internet of Everything) by 2020.

Per a recent survey and study done by Pew Research Internet Project, a large majority of the technology experts and engaged Internet users who responded (83 percent) agreed with the notion that the Internet/Cloud of Things and embedded and wearable computing will have widespread and beneficial effects by 2025.

It is, as such, clear that the IoT will consist of a very large number of devices being connected to the Internet.

Ambient intelligence and autonomous control are not part of the original concept of the Internet of Things. Ambient intelligence and autonomous control do not necessarily require Internet structures, either. However, there is a shift in research to integrate the concepts of the Internet of Things and autonomous control.
In the future the Internet of Things may be a non-deterministic and open network in which auto-organized or intelligent entities (Web services, SOA components), virtual objects (avatars) will be interoperable and able to act independently (pursuing their own objectives or shared ones) depending on the context, circumstances or environments.
Embedded intelligence presents an “AI-oriented” perspective of Internet of Things, which can be more clearly defined as: leveraging the capacity to collect and analyze the digital traces left by people when interacting with widely deployed smart things to discover the knowledge about human life, environment interaction, as well as social connection/behavior.

Physical objects will be connected to the internet and be able to identify themselves to other devices. The physical world is becoming one big information system. This is all great innovation with big opportunities, but it can also be a big mistake.

MIT professor Alex Pentland has written extensively about privacy, data ownership and data control. George Orwell was not creative enough when he wrote «1984».
