The Internet of Things (IoT) is a vision. It is being built today. The stakeholders are known, the debate has yet to start. In hundreds of years our real needs have not changed. We want to be loved, feel safe, have fun, be relevant in work and friendship, be able to support our families and somehow play a role - however small - in the larger scheme of things. So what will really happen when things, homes and cities become smart? The result will probably be an tsunami of what at first looks like very small steps, small changes. The purpose of Council is to follow and  forecast what will happen when smart objects surround us in smart homes, offices, streets, and cities.

Copenhagen Cleantech Cluster: DANISH SMART CITIES: SUSTAINABLE LIVING IN AN URBAN WORLD

......."Lastly, a city is not smart when it does not include all its stakeholders in the decision and planning process leading to new development. Public authorities, private companies, knowledge institutions and the city’s inhabitants all possess valuable knowledge and information about the city. A city which does not make use of the vast amount of valuable data is made up of a number of disconnected ‘silos of knowledge’, which do not learn from and inspire one another."
