Reno-based programs aim to boost local workforce for booming Internet of Things, blockchain industries
RENO, Nev. – Unless you reside under a disconnected rock, you’re likely attuned to the Internet of Things (IoT) – you know, the billions of physical devices around the world that are connected to the internet, collecting and sharing data.
And these devices are doing so – connecting, collecting, sharing – at a rapid rate for consumers and businesses alike. According to global research and advisory firm Gartner, about 8.4 billion IoT devices, from smart luggage to smart jet engines, were in use in 2017. By 2020, the number of devices is projected to jump to a whopping 20.4 billion.
