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.

Tobias Kowatsch: Economics Workshop at IoT Week in Venice

The international Internet of Things Community will get together at the IoT week 2012 in Venice (Italy) from 18-22 June 2012.

New creative models to experience the City

Ars Electronica Export invites to take part in the OPEN CALL - Projects for Zaragoza City (Call closes: June 15th, 2012) Three projects will be selected (the People's Choice Award and the two Jury Awards). Each awarded work will receive EUR 2000 ?, and a wide diffusion and visibility. Subsequently, one of the awarded projects will be chosen to be produced between 2012 and 2013 as one of the first works shown at the Etopia_Center of Art and Technology in Zaragoza (opening scheduled for beginning of 2013).

Andrew Black: A practical Internet of Things

In the Internet of Things, physical objects will gather data and pass it into information networks and will consume data from those same networks. That mass of new information and its automated creation and consumption will change everything. Andrew Back looks at the practical aspects of this change and shows how you can build a point of the future with an Arduino-compatible Nanode and the Cosm web service.

Tobias Kowatsch: Invitation to participate in a Survey on Internet of Things Services

The IoT-i project released a short survey to identify critical privacy factors of Internet of Things (IoT) services. We need your help to identify critical privacy factors of Internet of Things (IoT) services. IoT services are sensor-based applications that use identification technologies such as radio frequency or global satellite communication.

Prepublication: Robotics meets Internet of Things (soon to be CFP)

A new paradigm is slowly but surely emerging which will impose to revisit our concepts (e.g. from privacy to privacies, from human freedom to ethics in the knowledge sphere, from homogeneous information systems to heterogeneous mediators like (ro)bots, from data subject to the empowered citizen, etc. The pattern is on the side of decentralised, embedded, smart and connected machines/objects.

Christopher Mims: "the "Internet of Things" evolving into a responsive global nervous system"

Christopher Mims 05/13/2012: "Joi Ito's Near-Perfect Explanation of the Next 100 Years: "One hundred years from now, the role of science and technology will be about becoming part of nature rather than trying to control it." Steelcase asked 100 thinkers to describe their wish for the next 100 years, and MIT Media Lab director Joichi Ito hit it out of the park with his 150-word bon mot: Read more about Christopher Mims: "the "Internet of Things" evolving into a responsive global nervous system"



Tu Le: The Rise of the Machines – The Machine-to-Machine Evolution

On Skynet: "Some call it the "Internet of Things" others call it "Machine-to-Machine" and some simply call it the convergence of smart enabled devices with the Internet—whatever you call it—we are at a new inflection point of connected devices. Based on Analysys Mason forecasts, within the next few years, literally billions of Internet-enabled microprocessors will provide digital intelligence and connectivity Read more about Tu Le: The Rise of the Machines – The Machine-to-Machine Evolution



PhD Research Position: Privacy in the Internet of Things (deadline May 20 2912)

Radboud University, SIDN - the company behind .nl, Tilburg University and TNO collaborate in developing better solutions for managing online privacy and electronic identities. To this end they have established a new expertise centre, the 'Privacy & Identity Lab' (PI.lab), in which they will combine their current research and start up new research. This joint collaboration is unique because it involves integrated research into the technical, legal and socio-economic aspects of privacy and identity.

Submission deadline of IoT 2012 extended to May 15, 2012.

The IoT connects a vast number of heterogeneous smart objects that cooperate to support manifold applications. This requires efficient use of scarce resource in order to adapt to a dynamically changing environment. Users, applications, and devices compete for resources such as processing time, memory, communication bandwidth, and sensors/actuators. Access among them will need to be constantly and dynamically negotiated. Read more about Submission deadline of IoT 2012 extended to May 15, 2012.



François Carrez: CFP - Self-IoT: International Workshop on Self-aware Internet of Things, in conjunction with ICAC 2012

Spectacular advances in technology have introduced increasingly complex and large scale computer and communication systems. 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.
