An increasing number of networked devices are out there in the wild, ranging from security cameras to aerial drones, to small Raspberry Pi single-board computers, and many others. The total installed base of Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices worldwide is projected to reach 30.9 billion units by 2025, a sharp jump from the 13.8 billion units in 2021. These devices are becoming smaller in terms of their physical form factor — leading to a new designation I use, the Internet of Small Things (IoST).

"The goal of my research lab — the Innovatory for Cells and Neural Machines (ICAN) — is to make these on-device analytics smartsafe, and agile. Smart comes from the property that the devices not only acquire data, but also analyze the data to actuate and act on the decisions in near real time."
