The 1960s were about peace, love, and drugs. I believe the next decade will be about virtual reality, implants, and transhumanism.
Even though I was born after the 1960s, I've always been fascinated with that era. Some people credit Ken Kesey’s cross country bus trip as helping to spawn a generation of hippies. My Immortality Bus trip — a cross-country bus journey to spread the word about my Transhumanist Party campaign for the 2016 U.S. presidency, along with the need for a pro-science and longevity culture — aims to stir up the national consciousness as well.
Security is a major concern with those who are watching the development of the Internet of Things. You can read plenty about how security problems are going to be the death of the connected world. After all, no one wants to drive a connected car, only to have a hacker take control.
Yes, security is a concern, but I think there is another factor that could greatly hinder the growth of the Internet of Things, and that is the lack of standardization and ability to communicate across platforms.
You are cordially invited to consider presenting your work at or simply attending the upcoming 4th IEEE/TRB International Conference on Connected Vehicles and Expo (ICCVE 2015) in Shenzhen, China (http://www.iccve.org). As one of the four “tier-1” cities of China, Shenzhen is the largest electronics industry base in China and probably also in the world, and is adjacent to Hong Kong and Macau. Previous ICCVE conferences were held in Beijing (December 2012), Las Vegas (December 2013) and Vienna (November 2014).
Much has been written around a number of related themes such as the Internet of Things, Smart Industry/Industry 4.0, Smart Energy, Smart Cities, Smart Health Care, Smart Homes, Smart Transport, Big Data, Cloud and Anything as a Service. But there is more than technology that meets the eye.
Join us, get inspired, debate, discuss with some specialist speakers covering multiple angles from this Future Internet, our future.
The Internet of things is set to worm its way into many areas of our lives, but as our cars and domestic appliances become connected how can we be certain that they’re secure? We’ve already seen issues with cars being hacked and do you really want to be installing security software on your fridge?
What is the future of machines? Does this question intrigues as much as it intrigues me? Well, it is all about observation and not just the prediction, if we closely observe how technology is progressing and how innovations and technological advancements are made in varied sectors, it becomes more obvious as to which way we are heading onto. Internet of things has lately started to pickup at faster pace, we are progressing from era of smart mobile phones to smart solar lamps, street lights, wearables and several home appliances where machine to machine communication is being implemented.
The new 5G innovation centre (5GIC) is the world’s largest academic research complex dedicated to the next generation of mobile and wireless connectivity, but it has been stressed this work is not simply an upgrade of 4G technology.
The building, which was officially opened by the Duke of Kent on Tuesday (September 15), will house more than 170 researchers and has been funded by £70m of investment, with £12m from the Higher Education Funding Council for England.
In an interview with The Indian Express in New Delhi, President of BlackBerry Technology Solutions, Sandeep Chennakeshu, hints at BlackBerry’s next major play in the Internet of Things market, a 200 mm weatherproof high-value asset tracking box with an IP67 certification and a five-year battery life.
Now that the world around us has very much adjusted to the idea of connecting together with all devices and objects through a common cloud, we can expect to see the marvellous results of the Internet of Things technology in the near future.

Hortonworks CEO Rob Bearden says connected devices are driving demand for Hadoop.
For years, the open source Hadoop project for managing huge amounts of data has been in the spotlight, but it hasn’t necessarily lived up to its hype. Now it might have finally found its killer app in the Internet of things.
Everyone around us is gradually getting hold of the idea behind the Internet of Things technology. It is not the first time that we are hearing about the IoT technology and it is also definitely not the last time when we will come face to face with it. From what we have seen and heard so far, the Internet of Things technology is here to stay and it will benefit mankind in a way that no other technological or social reform has done so far.
