Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies emerge as the preferred choice for IoT environment monitoring

In February 2023, Transforma Insights published a report, ‘Environment Monitoring: 80.5 million connected devices by 2032, generating USD677 million revenue’, which primarily focused on how the Internet of Things (IoT) is being used for a wide range of environment monitoring including industrial air, water and noise pollution, nuclear radiation, odour detection, river water pollution and dust monitoring. In this blog post, we examine the reasons behind IoT's application for environmental monitoring, the major technologies involved, governmental initiatives and related business models.

The EU’s AI Act is ambitious and laudable, but encounters with the real world will be challenging

Work is underway in the European Commission to develop regulations for Artificial Intelligence (AI). To help build a resilient ‘Europe for the Digital Decade’, the European Commission asserts that people and businesses should be able to enjoy the benefits of AI while feeling safe and protected. The European AI Strategy intends to make the EU a world-class hub for AI and ensure that AI is human-centric and trustworthy. The aim is that such an objective translates into a European approach to excellence and trust through concrete rules and actions. In this blog we outline some key aspects of the emerging legislation (that is still subject to refinement) together with some of the potential implications of the approach being taken.
