Jon Fingas: Malaysia will use RFID stickers to track vehicles

If you're planning to drive in Malaysia in the next few years, don't expect to maintain a lot of privacy. The country plans to implement RFID-equipped road tax stickers that will help authorities track all vehicles, whether they're local or foreign. It'll start with a pilot program at a border checkpoint this October, but it should expand to cover the whole of Malaysia by 2018. And don't think of trying to take the sticker off -- it'll shatter and transmit a warning if you try to tamper with it.

Alain Louchez:The Road to Internet of Things Innovation

An article by Alain Louchez, Managing Director of the Georgia Tech Center for the Development and Application of Internet of Things Technologies (CDAIT).

A recent book (¡Crear o morir! 1, i.e., “create or die”) by Andrés Oppenheimer, the acclaimed Argentine journalist residing in the United States who reports with stylish and incisive prose in various media including bestsellers on Latin America’s challenges and potential, offers a very useful departing point for a current reflection on Internet of Things (IoT) innovation.

Internet of Things: Trend or Fad

Is the blurring of commercial and residential design an accident? That stark clean line, that mindfully day-lit expanse, that blend of stone, wood, glass, and metal that we've found new ways to warm and add drama to and engage with, directly or as a backdrop. Commercial design and architecture have taught residential spaces ways to eliminate the obvious to make room for the meaningful, like light, like flow of space, like physical and suggested linkages between in- and outdoors.

Adrian Bridgwater: The (Internet Of Things) Doctor Will See You Now -- And Anytime

The healthcare business is in an upheaval of sorts. The disorder is driven by the arrival of the Internet itself, the ‘wearable’ Internet of Things (IoT) and the wider freedom and accessibility of information. In some instances we can see individuals using ‘devices’ from fitness & blood pressure monitors to blood analysis kits and onwards to start taking their healthcare into their own hands. But extensive and extended medical self-diagnosis is of course not necessarily a good idea.

Chris Levanes: Internet of Things: the ticking bomb

The spectrum of security risks and conceivable attack vectors affecting loT devices is diverse, with varying degrees of probability and concerns.  Focusing exclusively upon home-use scenarios, it is unlikely that hackers will want to attack and gain access to a smart TV or automation lighting control without purpose.  However, a number of other scenarios are likely to raise real caution.

Robert J. Samuelson: The 'Internet of Things': Are we ready?

WASHINGTON -- Are we ready for the "Internet of Things"? Probably not. The phrase -- coined in 1999 by researcher Kevin Ashton while working for Procter & Gamble -- refers to things (cars, homes, factories, hospitals) whose performance is monitored and guided by digital networks. We already have one wildly successful example: GPS navigation that directs us to unfamiliar destinations. But countless other possibilities have excited futurists and tech companies.

Ariel Bogle: Cyborgs, third ears and body hacking: How the future of technology is inside us

Science fiction is full of stories in which the machines take over and humans are left subservient to their own creations, but according to some artists and experimenters, that need not be our future.

The work of Neil Harbisson, an Irish-born human cyborg, and Stelarc, an Australian performance artist, suggest that if we unite our bodies with technology, we can drastically extend our abilities and perception, and maybe even stay one step ahead of the robots.

Announcing: The University of Isfahan is organizing the International Symposium on Internet of Things to be held on May 16-18, 2016 in Isfahan, Iran.

The University of Isfahan is organizing the International Symposium on Internet of Things to be held on May 16-18, 2016 in Isfahan, Iran. The University of Isfahan, as one of the top ranked universities in the Middle East with its strong research culture will host researchers, scientists, engineers, and practitioners in the field of IoT, to exchange their latest research results and findings. It is anticipated that the meeting will gather many people from all around the world.

The important date of the conference are:

W. David Stephenson: Share It (Data) and They Will Come

Cities are rapidly becoming the very visible and innovative laboratories for IoT innovation, which is logical, because they’ve been in the forefront of open data — as I saw first-hand when I was consulting for Vivek Kundra when he opened up vast amounts of real-time data as CTO for the District of Columbia as part of its Apps for Democracy initiative in 2008 that was part of the larger democratizing data movement.

Stephanie Neil: The Center for Trends and Technology to Address Critical Issues

As technology evolves, so must manufacturing processes. But it’s not easy to keep up with the ever-changing technology landscape that includes the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), cloud computing, and cybersecurity tools. Moreover, there are regulations to adhere to, like the Food and Drug Administration’s Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), which has pharmaceutical companies scrambling to meet serialization deadlines. As a result, companies are often playing catch-up with internal operations while trying to maintain a competitive position in the global marketplace.

Aaron Hand: Internet of Things Is Shaping the Sensor Market

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is nothing without sensors to measure pressures, positions, temperatures and other important production parameters. So it’s understandable that as IIoT and consumer IoT applications grow, the sensor market is taking off as well. And continued innovation in sensor technologies is only helping to fuel the expansion of IoT capabilities that much further.

Mazlan Abbas: Internet of Things (IoT) - We Are at the Tip of An Iceberg

You are likely benefitting from The Internet of Things (IoT) today, whether or not you’re familiar with the term. If your phone automatically connects to your car radio, or if you have a smartwatch counting your steps, congratulations! You have adopted one small piece of a very large IoT pie, even if you haven't adopted the name yet.
