Is South Africa ready for the 'Internet of Things'?

The Internet of Things (IOT) or Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been likened to the industrial revolution, possibly changing history.

Recent statistics reveal increasing interaction between human and technological communication, with over 20 billion devices expected to be connected by 2020.
