Although some IoT systems are built for simple event control where a sensor signal triggers a corresponding reaction, many events are far more complex, requiring applications to interpret the event using analytical techniques to initiate proper actions. Artificial intelligence of things (AIoT) applies intelligence to the edge and gives devices the ability to understand the data, observe the environment around them, and decide what to do best with minimum human intervention. With the power of AI, AIoT devices are not just messengers feeding information to control centers. They have evolved into intelligent machines capable of performing self-driven analytics and acting independently. A smart environment uses technologies such as wearable devices, IoT, and mobile internet to dynamically access information, connect people, materials and institutions, and then actively manages and responds to the ecosystem's needs in an intelligent manner.
