Con­nec­tiv­ity a global chal­lenge

Mercury (Hobart) - - BUSINESS -

THERE will be 50 bil­lion de­vices con­nected to the in­ter­net glob­ally by 2030 — more than 10 for ev­ery per­son, ac­cord­ing to Mi­crosoft chief Satya Nadella.

And there will be 175 zettabytes — or bil­lion ter­abytes — of data col­lected by 2025.

“The real ques­tion for us is, how do we in­crease the tech in­ten­sity in­side our or­gan­i­sa­tions us­ing this par­a­digm?” Mr Nadella said in Sydney yes­ter­day.

He said Mi­crosoft wanted to democra­tise ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence and al­low peo­ple to build on oth­ers’ work.
