Kate Bevan: The Internet of Things makes strange — and worrying — connections

Being inclined to sloth, especially at weekends, I love being able to turn on my kettle via an app from the comfort of my bed or the sofa and have it keep the water at the perfect temperature until I am ready to get up and walk to the kitchen to make coffee.

Smart kettles, fridges that keep tabs on when the milk is going off, tweeting catflaps, connected keyless locks that let your cleaner in but keep your mother-in-law out — the internet of things (IoT) is, as they say, most definitely a thing.

Andrés Oppenheimer: The future of our jobs

The headlines from last week’s World Economic Forum meeting attended by 40 heads of government in Davos, Switzerland, focused on Islamic State terrorism, collapsing oil prices and Europe’s refugee crisis. But what I found most interesting — and under-reported — was the group’s forecast that robots will kill more than five million jobs over the next five years.

Europe's most liveable city? The secret of Odense's post-industrial revolution

Denmark’s third-largest city has transformed its prospects by making itself a desirable place to live and invest. At the heart of this change is an extraordinary commitment to getting the whole city cycling

...

“More and more investors are coming here, because they believe in the way we’ve transformed this old, industrial city into a new city,” he says. “We know we need to live from private businesses, so we need to have good conditions for that. But we care about the whole life of people. It’s all these many things together.”

Ben O'Brien: The Future of Wearables Depends on an Entirely New Business Model

In the near future, your gym will give you compression gear to wear during your workout. The gear will be filled with tiny, invisible generators that spring to life with the energy from your movement, your body heat and the WIFI signals in the room. The generators will then power little sensors seamlessly integrated into your clothing, which measure everything your body does: Kinematics, range of motion, heart rate, sweat, reps, blood sugar, body fat and so on.

Dan Byles: The Internet of Things, disruption…and you

SMART CITIES and the Internet of Things (IoT) are up there near the top of the hype cycle. You don't have to be in the technology sector to know that anyone who reads fairly widely can't miss it. But I still come across people in the energy and utility sectors, construction and engineering, and even some apparently cutting edge renewable and clean tech companies, who don't really grasp what all the fuss is about.

This is a mistake. Whatever sector you are in, and particularly those of us concerned about sustainability, you need to get this.
