New Research from Newark Reveals Strong Adoption of Artificial Intelligence within the Internet of Things Ecosystem

March 24, 2020 Perry Cohen

Newark published new research on the Internet of Things (IoT) which confirms strong adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) within IoT devices. The company’s research showed that 49% of respondents already use AI in their IoT applications, with Machine Learning (ML) the most used technology (28%), followed by cloud-based AI (19%).

In opposition, there were still 51% of respondents that have not adopted or implemented AI technology into IoT applications.

The research survey, which is Newark’s second-such report, highlighted security as being the biggest concern for those implementing IoT.

Other statistics that came from the survey are listed:

  • 70% of respondents prefer to own the data collected by an edge device as opposed to it being owned by the IoT solution provider.  
  • 46% of engineers prefer to design a complete edge-to-cloud and security solution themselves
  • 54% of respondents are adopting off-the-shelf hardware

(All statistics have come directly from Newark)

The survey ran from Sept. – Dec. 2019, compiling responses from 2,015 participants. Those who participated came from 67 countries in Europe, North America, and Asia. 59% of respondents were engineers who were working on IoT solutions.
