    IoT platform provider Jasper raises $50M

It is, essentially, a network of devices that are connected via sensors to maximize the potential of each object. The space has two sides: those that manufacturer the devices themselves, and the companies that provide the platform that will actually facilitate the connecting of those devices.

    The company can collect a huge amount of data, although CEO Elon Musk says: “Tesla data logging is only turned on with explicit written permission from customers, but after Top Gear BS, we always keep it on for media.”
