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.

Giulio Coraggio: Internet of Things hindered by Net Neutrality?

Source: “The decision of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to adopt the “net neutrality” principle raised concerns by European authorities that declared their intent to adopt a different solution.  And this happens in a period when the usage of bandwidth is becoming essential to ensure the growth of the Internet of Things. The position taken by the FCC is that bandwidth services will be considered “utilities” i.e. public services like water and gas

Internet of Things: How the next stage of the internet’s evolution will connect humans and machines

Source: "TEN years from now, while looking for a new restaurant, you’ll search Google and find a nearby prospect. You’ll peruse the menu and once intrigued, pick a dish, say, “smell,” and a special device will emit the odour of that dish. Then, via another device, you taste a sample. Satisfied, you say, “Reservation for two, tonight, 7:30.” Congratulations, you just made a dinner reservation in 2025. The “Internet of Things” refers to the next stage of the Internet’s evolution.

Movement in the Making : The Emergence of the Maker Movement

Source: “The maker movement is made up of some 135 million adults in the U.S., however, it’s more than just a U.S. movement. Maker faires that celebrate the movement have popped up in Japan, Italy, Norway, and Chile. Makers use their skills to craft items such as clothing, baked goods, jewelry, and art; contributing $29 billion to the U.S. economy annually.
From 3D printers to laser cutters—makers employ various tools to create their goods. Many gather at makerspaces where they share these resources. Makerspaces are havens for techies, artists, and entrepreneurs.

At its Convergence 2015 conference in Atlanta, Microsoft unveiled the Azure IoT Suite, a cloud service which will enable billing, monitoring, analytics, and predictive maintenance in IoT deployments. The preview version will be available later this year, but it will first launch Azure Stream Analytics -- a standalone service that helps companies process IoT data in real time -- in April. Stream can also be integrated into the Azure IoT Suite.

IoTDay 2015: Taking a chance, betting on our own strength.

In the philosophy of Aristotle there are three domains of knowledge with three corresponding states of knowing; TheoriaTechné and Praxis. Theoria with its domain of knowledge epistéme, is for the Greek gods, mortals can never reach this state of knowing. But they can strive for it. In Theoria and epistéme we recognize our concepts theory and epistemology. In Techné with its domain of knowledge poèsis we find technology and poetry. The original meaning of the word 'technology' was concerned with know-how or method. Only with the Great Exhibition of 1851 it becomes attached to machines. It is therefore all the more interesting that the domain of knowledge that belonged to Praxis: phronesis has dropped out completely

Abdur Rahim: Self-IoT 2015 Call for Papers (Apr 13 2015)

Source: "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. 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,
