A very interesting new startup called Teraki is looking to address the problem of data overload by managing the amount of information that sensors transmit. “If we don’t put any intelligence at the source of the information, it is going to collapse everything,” said Edouard Rozan, the company’s co-founder, in his interview with Michael Kogan.
