For the report, Intel Security and Atlantic Council's Cyber Statecraft Initiative gathered government, medical and security specialists to create guides for trust and innovation for connected medical devices. Connected medical devices help patients and their caregivers better monitor their health.
"In the meantime, I would like to invite you all to participate to our IoT Developer Survey. We want to understand better the current technology trends, how mature the industry is, and how the current industry players are perceived. Of course, at Eclipse we are building an open source community for IoT developers, so we are also looking forward to learn more on how mature the industry is with regard to using and contributing to open source IoT projects.
Now that the Internet-of-Things is a reality worldwide (notably the IoT was the main attraction at CES 2015), we will be looking especially at how to bring IoT into large-scale adoption and widespread use. IoT Week 2015 will contribute to understanding of the future of the Internet-of-Things in the large-scale considering the technological and research dimensions but also innovation, user acceptance, security and privacy, business models, etc. IoT Week 2015 will pave the way for the future European Internet of Things Large Scale Pilots (LSP) envisioned
Extending Seamlessly to the Internet of Things (esIoT) is an international workshop focused on the integration aspects of the Internet of Things (IoT). The emerging machine-to-machine (M2M) systems should provide transparent access to information and services through a seamless integration into the Internet. On the one hand, the so-called Web of Things aims for direct Web connectivity by pushing its technology down to devices. On the other hand,

Autonomic computing has been proposed as a grand challenge that will allow the systems self-manage this complexity, using high-level objectives and policies defined by humans. Internet of things (IoT) as well as big data technologies will exponentially increase the scale and the complexity of existing computing and communication systems; the autonomy is thus an imperative property for real-time IoT systems.
However, there is still a lack of research on how to adapt and tailor existing research on autonomic computing to the specific characteristics of IoT, and the big data it generates,

And that’s on top of your smartphone, smart watch, tablet and laptop. But the essence of marketing is not to invent for invention’s sake, it is to create products and services that meet people’s needs.

The smartphone revolutionized personal computing, creating a computer that most of us have within arm’s reach 24 hours a day. The Internet of Things promises to revolutionize computing again, by connecting and collecting data from everything we live in, drive in, eat in, sleep in and work in. In just a year or two, the number of IoT devices will outnumber the number of PCs, smartphones and laptops globally.

How many of us, when we were growing up, had to install updates on our light bulbs? Or reboot the TV? Or add security updates to a refrigerator? We are entering a new period where the things around us are going to be connected to the Great Cloud in the Sky.
That's great, in some ways. That's not so great, in many other ways.

The chancellor pledged £40m for the internet of things, which allows devices to be controlled by a smartphone or tablet, alongside a £600m investment in freeing up spectrum to be used for wireless broadband and £7.4m to provide wi-fi access for libraries in England. The £40m will be used for business incubators – spaces dedicated to supporting startups –

Indeed, the Internet of things has featured on lists of game-changing technologies for years, and is arguably one of the most hyped tech innovations around. With sensors getting cheaper by the day, more and more physical objects are becoming part of a network of things changing the way we live and work. For businesses of the future, this should lead to a huge cut in costs since these new tools help us see exactly what is going on where.

Converting existing cities into smarter cities and building new smart cities seem to be given the top-most priority in the political agenda. Plans are being developed to use technologies that can take the existing cities to the next level and make them self-sufficient, comfortable and efficient. But efficiency alone is not adequate for the city to be ‘smart’. The city has to be safe for the citizens to feel protected and for the overall well-being. In order to ensure safety in a smart city set up, IP based video surveillance is a must.

But what this definition does not tell us is how the IoT will revolutionise customer experience. With the global market predicted to be worth £4.2 trillion by 2020, for the past few years at Outbox Group, we have been telling businesses why they should have a vested interest in the potential of IoT in improving customer experience.”
