The number of individual sensors could top one trillion as of 2020 according to estimates from several companies and industry groups. As the number of installed, object-level sensors increase, vast quantities of new data are sent, stored and must be analyzed to build predictive models and prevent break down on equipment; this is accomplished by developing and training predictive algorithms in the form of neural networks and implementing those algorithms within the appropriate technology-based solution frameworks.
