The Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are evolving towards the next generation of Tactile IoT/IIoT, which will bring together hyperconnectivity, edge computing, Distributed Ledger Technologies(DLTs) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Future IoT applications will apply AI methods, such as machine learning (ML) and neural networks(NNs), to optimize the processing of information, as well as to integrate robotic devices, drones, autonomous vehicles, augmented and virtual reality(AR/VR), and digital assistants. These applications will engender new products, services and experiences that will offer many benefits to businesses, consumers and industries. A more human-centred perspective will allow us to maximise the effects of the next generation of IoT/IIoT technologies and applications as we move towards the integration of intelligent objects With social capabilities that need to address the interactions between autonomous systems and humans in a seamless way.
