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.

......."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."

Sandy Klausner: Introduction to Cubicon

Sandy Klausner: "There is a general belief that the Internet of Things (IoT) will shape a newer "information society" and "knowledge economy." However, there are fundamental technological barriers that are attenuating the transition from the present "Internet of PCs" towards an "Internet of Things" (IoT) in which 50 to 100 billion devices might be connected to the Internet by 2020. The primary reason the 'thing' ecosystem will remain largely unrealized is the lack of an intelligent network infrastructure to support it. Read more about Sandy Klausner: Introduction to Cubicon
