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.

Jerome Nadel: Internet of Things Hype Needs a Healthy Dose of Design Thinking

Source: "When the talk of the Internet of Things (IoT) began getting serious attention last decade it was based on the realization that processing, storage, bandwidth and connectivity were becoming so small and cheap that almost anything could be a connected device. Putting functionality in appliances to enable machine-based transactions to occur suddenly seemed possible and the potential applications of connected devices were endless.

Center for Data Innovation: on IoT: Reduce barriers to data sharing

Daniel Castro & Jordan Misra November 2013: The “Internet of Things” refers to the concept that the Internet is no longer just a global network for people to communicate with one another using computers, but it is also a platform for devices to communicate electronically with the world around them. The result is a world that is alive with information as data flows from one device to another and is shared and reused for a multitude of purposes. Harnessing the potential of all of this data Read more about Center for Data Innovation: on IoT: Reduce barriers to data sharing



Emma Greedec: Will the 'Internet of Things' Actually Be a Thing in 2014?

Source: "This cup is not part of the Internet of things, but it's sure cool enough to be.  The so-called "Internet of things" has gotten a lot of hype lately. The idea is pretty simple, albeit logistically complex: Companies can put chips in inanimate objects—cars, thermostats, refrigerators, lightbulbs—that allow those objects to be connected to the Internet and controlled remotely.  Our colleagues over at Quartz have a long list of arguments for why 2014 Read more about Emma Greedec: Will the 'Internet of Things' Actually Be a Thing in 2014?



Ben van Lier: Cyberspace, cybernetics and cyber-physical systems

Source: "The term cybernetics, introduced in the middle of the last century by Norbert Wiener, still forms the basis for attributing significance to developments arising from new technology. The term cyberspace was introduced in the 1980s, and now mankind stands at the cusp of the development and design of cyber-physical systems. The influence on our daily lives and work of cybernetics as a science thus continues to increase. Read more about Ben van Lier: Cyberspace, cybernetics and cyber-physical systems

Christopher Mims: How the “internet of things” will replace the web

Source: „We’ve already written about why 2014 is really, finally the year that the “internet of things”—that effort to remotely control every object on earth—becomes visible in our everyday lives. But most of us don’t recognize just how far the internet of things will go, from souped-up gadgets that track our every move to a world that predicts our actions and emotions. In this way, the internet of things will become more central to society than the internet as we know it today. The web will survive
