Mashable article Google, the world’s most powerful technology company, is announcing an open collaboration with Facebook and Apple on software to enable the internet of objects to communicate and communicate data with each other.
In a blog post on Tuesday, Google announced a new initiative that would enable data to flow between devices and devices to other devices, including those connected to the internet.
Google, which will work with Facebook, is calling this the Internet of Objects (IoO), and the collaboration will focus on building a new type of device that will enable “the Internet of Everything,” Google said.
Facebook, meanwhile, is using the term “internet of things” to describe a network of interconnected devices that communicate with each-other and that can control, communicate with, and control objects.
Google’s announcement on Tuesday was the first concrete sign that Google is seriously considering a move toward IoT in the face of an increasingly pervasive internet of devices, especially in the realm of connected homes and connected cars.
Google is also looking to build its own IoT platform, similar to Microsoft’s Windows IoT platform.
The collaboration comes as the internet and connected devices have become an increasingly dominant force in the lives of people and businesses.
Facebook’s Watson, Google’s AI assistant, and Apple’s Siri are some of the most recognizable names in technology.
