He further added that most of the people are depending on technology which has resulted in the decline of patience levels in humans. Keeping that in view, IoT is responsible for changing the world. He indicated that the number of humans connected to the Intenet would exceed the number of things that are connected to it. He advised the youth to have cognitive flexibility so that they can adopt new technologies.

Ramakrishna, MD of Efftronics mentioned that the world and job opportunities are being disrupted as billions of things are connected to the Internet.
