The Internet of Things (“IoT”) is a world where everyday objects collect large amounts of data stored on cloud platforms and communicated to other parties and devices. Matters relating to IoT are wide ranging and may relate to artificial intelligence systems, automobiles, eHealth and telemedicine, energy, and mobile technologies, among other things. This wide range of industry sectors demonstrates the need for attorneys like the team at Haug Partners who have a strong understanding of the technologies at issue in conjunction with technical backgrounds.
Haug Partners’ IoT team understands both the business opportunities and legal challenges that arise in a world where the Internet is becoming increasingly interconnected into everyday objects and how IoT is enhancing the way in which those objects can transfer data over a network without the traditional need of transferring that data from person-to-person or person-to-computer.
