Re: IoT and Developing Economies
Ashu001, it might be possible. However, currently it is extremely difficult to pin-point exactly the sector or industry for which an individual is working. Work in the retail, automotive or banking sector, etc., and it is difficult to state whether retail or IT is the primary job function. The bricks and mortar setups are safe at the moment.
The really poor and down-trodden consumers are the individuals that do not have access to electricity and specifically, reliable electricity. Wood is the primary source of fuel and burning wood is a serious risk to health. If IoT can provide individuals with clean and reliable electricity at grid parity then, it is good. If the economics of clean/renewable energy works out on this level, the economies of scale will enable benefits to the wider world and maybe, in 100 years the world will be powered by renewables.
