Technology is one of those inventions by scientists that evolve every hour. Just a few decades back, computers required air conditioning and were kept in special environment to function flawlessly. Today, the machines and devices are developed keeping the harshest conditions in mind; they are durable and can withstand extreme conditions such as dust, temperature, and even water. Even further, a lot of research is going on to develop a cyborg with all possible efficiencies.

Internet of Things, or better known as IoT, has revolutionized the way communication happens between humans and machines. Furthermore, the invention of Machine Learning (ML) has induced Artificial Intelligence in devices making them think like humans. The next generation IoT devices and machines would have intelligence, empathy, and even decision-making capacity; a future cyborg is just knocking the doors and is about to enter the human world.

With advancement come threats and risks, and IoT is riskier. Each machine or device with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) capacity would develop its own brain, which, in turn, will help them taking decisions on their own. A lot of Hollywood movies have been centered on machines’ evil intelligence and their quest to conquer the entire human race. And, this is not fiction!
