Today there are many smart devices in the market like television sets, home lighting, air conditioners, watches and speakers. This is just the beginning of a trend that’s going to break retail and online markets. We’re at the brink of a whole new, data-driven, and highly analytical way of life that will affect every industry; right from food to electronics, manufacturing, and automobile to fashion, medicine and lifestyle.
