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.

Hans-Jürgen & Stefan: Will the Internet of Things & Services Address Real World Challenges?

Will the Internet of Things & Services Address Real World Challenges?: "The term Internet of Things introduced earlier distinguishes between the past generation of the internet — the internet of people — and a new level of ubiquity and interconnection, which will allow direct linking and communication between “things” (devices, products, sensors, apps, etc.) without human intervention.

Roberto Baldwin: Wireless Sensor Tags Help You Keep Track of Your Stuff

Wireless Sensor Tags Help You Keep Track of Your Stuff: "Stuff goes missing. Maybe you misplaced something, or maybe one of the uninvited guests at your last shindig is “borrowing” it. Regardless, now you need it, and you can’t find it. But what if you could tag your possessions and keep tabs on them, like a researcher tracking so many wildebeests in the Serengeti?"

Mike McConnell:The Rise of the Internet of Things

The Internet has long been described as a network of networks. The IOT can be described as a network of networks and things. Of course we humans are intertwined with both. Where will all this lead? Who really knows? Perhaps one day we’ll have one or more sensors in our bodies monitoring and reporting on each of us. We then become a part of the IOT. To a certain extent, science fiction is becoming reality. Pretty cool to think about. Read more about Mike McConnell:The Rise of the Internet of Things

John Soldatos: OpenIoT Newsletter

OpenIoT middleware will provide a first-of-a-kind implementation of an open-source middleware infrastructure for IoT applications and services. The realization of the OpenIoT middleware requires the development and integration of a flexible context recognition framework that is able to capture the context of users (e.g. location, activity, plans, intents), an interoperable data model to represent context information, a scalable data processing infrastructure to query and aggregate context information and to integrate context into services.

Nora O' Murchú: Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V: An exhibition of work by Anthony Antonellis

The immateriality and indistinct physical location of net art challenges the traditional modes of viewing and contextual experience that exists for art-viewing audiences. In this exhibition, the curator challenges these issues by translating the experience and conceptual understanding of Antonellis's work into a unique immersive site-specific installation. The collaborative exchange between curator and artist is a fundamental part of this exhibition. Read more about Nora O' Murchú: Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V: An exhibition of work by Anthony Antonellis



Paul Dourish: Where The Action Is: The Foundations of Embodied Interaction (2001)

"These two areas of research -- tangible and social computing -- have been conducted largely as independent research programs. However, I believe that they have a common foundation, and that that foundation is the notion of "embodiment." By embodiment, I don't mean simply physical reality, but rather, the way that physical and social phenomena unfold in real time and real space as a part of the world in which we are situated, right alongside and around us."

Sun Yunchuan: Workshop on Identification, Information and Knowledge on the Internet of Things, Wuxi, China

How to share the knowledge among smart things? How to ensure the security of the information and protect the private information? The challenges on technologies of identification, information, and knowledge systems are the primary issues for the purpose of full implementation of the Internet of Things.

RFID Journal: Once robots are integrated into the Internet of Things, they can perform tasks automatically.

The IoT is still missing the arms and legs to take action automatically. So far, screens and displays alert humans to, say, bring goods from one place to another. If RFID-enabled robots equipped with sensors could be integrated into the IoT, they could act automatically and, potentially, navigate in a smart environment faster, more safely and more accurately than humans.

Francis daCosta : Rethinking the Internet of Things

"The general concept of peer-to-peer networks is extremely attractive. It appeals to my philosophical leanings and to my sense of engineering elegance. The prospect of billions of devices seamlessly interacting with one another seems to allow the Internet of Things to escape the limitations of centralized command and control, instead taking full advantage of Metcalfe's Law to create more value through more interconnections."
