PravoIKT addresses new, disruptive technological developments such as Internet of Things and Cloud Computing. The primary goal of the initiative is to raise awareness about benefits and importance the Internet of Things and other disruptive technological phenomenons may bring as well as to help avoiding possible pitfalls. The idea is to create momentum for bottom-up approach to much needed legislative changes by providing constructive, useful insight and expertise.

As companies try to determine how the Internet of Things and M2M can work for them, they are often in need of guidance on how to choose and implement the right solutions. This need for education has led one advisory services firm, INEX Advisors to offer a new Internet of Things Education/Training and Commercialization Program

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

For networking professionals, the next wave of challenges comes from...

In our new book, “Big Bang Disruption,” we describe the radical ways technological innovations are now entering the market, often appearing as better and cheaper alternatives to existing goods, right from the start.

It's all those devices that are collecting huge amounts of data on you and the people around you and then sending it into the cloud. That includes many of those toys that are on your Christmas list this year, such as Fitbit, Jawbone, Google Glass and smart..

Sure they were, especially in industrial applications, where the term SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) sums up what all of this is really about—information flow and control. This comes from the 1960s, when computing was much more standalone—i.e. precious little in the way of interconnected networks...

Winner of SmartCamp’s Moscow regional finals, STEK combines IT, sensors, and smart electricity meters to create a new, more energy-efficient way of controlling underground oil pumps.

With over 30 billion IP-connected devices and sensors projected to be in operation by 2020, according to ABI Research, the tech world is positioning the Internet of Things to be one of the biggest drivers of innovation since the steam engine. But much like the evolution of the internet....
Thingful is a discoverability engine for The Public Internet of Things, providing a geographical index of where things are, who owns them, and how and why they are used.
Today, millions of people and organisations around the world already have and use connected 'things', ranging from energy monitors, weather stations and pollution sensors
As product designers dream up ways to exploit the inherent connectivity that will be offered in intelligent products, we expect the variety of devices offered to explode.
Gartner added the Internet of Things will facilitate new business models based on real-time data and could be particularly popular in the health and fitness industry as well as the medical and banking sector

The 4.1 update focuses primarily on usability concerns. Up to now, Bluetooth has existed somewhat in its own realm and never needed to work with other protocols.
