IoT or the Internet of Things is from the same technology pool that powers AI, ML, and any other sort of automation. However, IoT has a broader market since the world is gearing up for the future every day. Internet of Things refers to anything that uses the internet. But was not suppose to in the simplest of scenarios. For example, your refrigerator that can order milk once it senses you are running out of the same is using IoT behind the scenes. Similarly, most air conditioners today can detect the location of a person in a room. The machine automatically concentrates on cooling the occupied area more.
