Google appoints ex-Samsung man to head its IoT biz



Agency Reuters reports that Alphabet Inc’s Google had, earlier this month, hired Injong Rhee, who recently resigned as Samsung Electronics Co’s Chief Technology Officer, to lead its Internet of Things (IoT) business.

Rhee himself said in a LinkedIn post  on Monday that he would serve as entrepreneur-in-residence under Diane Greene, chief executive of the Cloud computing group, which sells software and hardware to other businesses.

Rhee said he aims to harmonise Alphabet’s various projects related to the Internet of Things, or IoT, a term that encompasses any device that accesses data online. Self-driving cars, home appliances with virtual assistants and the latest weather sensors on farms fall under the emerging category of technology.
