The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing everything – from smart devices to smart infrastructure. Unfortunately, along with it comes the threat of malware and cybersecurity attacks. Because IoT devices can contain components from multiple sources, their hardware and software can include security schemes that range from very sophisticated to nonexistent. Detecting malicious circuitry – or hardware Trojans – becomes more difficult as the number of electronic components increases.

But the value it brings to the practice of medicine is disproportionately large and growing rapidly. As a result, the medical electronics industry is expected to see significant growth, propelled by the rising incidence of chronic disease coupled with greater use of medical imaging, monitoring and implantable devices – all combined with an increasingly elderly population.

While digital infrastructure might not be the cure to COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, it is undoubtedly helping the world cope in many ways. More and more, governments, enterprises, healthcare, and even the education sector are using the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) to autonomously fight the effects of the pandemic as it continues to spread globally.
Here are six ways IoT and AI are helping curb the pandemic:
