The Samsung ARTIK 5 and ARTIK 10 modules are not famous, but they are about to become famous. Canonical has big plans and wants to make snappy Ubuntu Core work on these platforms.
The Internet of Things ecosystem is getting bigger every day, and everyone wants a piece of the action. Samsung is one of the biggest hardware manufacturers on the planet, so it’s only natural for them to want to get involved and get an early start with IoT devices.
For now, IoT (Internet of Things) hasn’t really kicked in. This is still early technology, and there aren’t many examples of working devices. We get a smart fridge or maybe some other smart appliance, but for the most part, IoT is not having a big impact on other lives.
