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.

Adrian Bridgwater: The Internet will get worse, before it gets better

Source: „The web is in a state of flux; competing cloud standards combined with the growth of the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) and the continual proliferation of devices, applications and operating systems are creating a muddled maelstrom of disorientation. For technology to proliferate and grow as naturally as we have seen inside the ‘non-industrial Internet’, we need simplicity of application access, common user interface experiences and (arguably most of all) a base layer architecture for our IT where interconnectivity
