The Internet of Things (IoT) will find its way into the way we work. As sensors and other connected devices invade our homes and places of work, we will expect an increase in new emergent ways to harness all this data to our advantage. Having intelligent context engines will be the glue that brings disparate data streams together. As we learn how we can use this data it will change the way we work and interact with our systems, effectively changing the User Experience (UX) status quo. This paper will explore the opportunities that IoT brings by collecting user data to help determine its context and offer a more compelling User Experience.
