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.

Internet of Things Week in Rotterdam!

After all; to which question was/is the IoT an answer at first? The most elementary description of the IoT is that it connects the physical world to the virtual/digital world. More articulated descriptions exist, but they vary in detail, not in their essence. Nevertheless: by connecting both worlds we have facilitated a possible way of communication; next – or better first - we need to determine why, when and for whom. .
