CHICAGO, IL–(Marketwired – April 13, 2016) – The Illinois Technology Association (ITA) today announced the release of a first of its kind report that catalogs and categorizes Internet of Things (IoT) companies in the Midwest. The Inventory was created by the ITA’s IoT Council to formalize and visualize IoT’s expanding presence in the Midwes
The Internet of Things (IoT) is radically redefining just what it means to be connected. As such, it will present unmissable, undreamt-of possibilities for businesses all over the world; Accenture, for example, predicts that industrial IoT alone could add $14.2 trillion (£10 trillion) to the world economy over the next 15 years.
Billboards, the oldest and least technology-driven of all advertising media, are now being given an Internet-of-things upgrade, as brands and media owners look for new ways to ensure proof of performance.

Notice of Meeting of the International Telecommunication Advisory Committee, A Notice by the State Department on 03/17/2016
This notice announces a meeting of the United States International Telecommunication Advisory Committee (ITAC) to gather participants' perspectives on the dynamic and evolving international environment around the Internet of Things (IoT) and the application of that technology in Smart Cities, including relevant technical, commercial, and economic issues.
While the Internet of Things (IoT) still flies beneath the broad public consciousness, it’s already transforming modern life. Beyond fitness trackers and predictive car maintenance, the devices around us are becoming ever more connected and “intelligent.” If you’re in construction, concrete can sense and alert to weakness. In medicine, doctors can remotely check your heart. Or if you manage an office of freelancers, workstations can recognize and adapt to an employee’s presence.
The negative attention on Nest isn’t letting up. Last week, the Alphabet-owned maker of internet-connected home gadgets got called out by customers after it said that the smart home “hub” built by Revolv, a company Nest acquired in 2014, will stop working on May 15.
The $300 hub contains multiple radios for connecting a wide range of smart home gadgets and relies on connections to the company’s servers to function properly. The impending shutdown shouldn’t have surprised anyone because Nest said at the time of the acquisition that it planned to do just that.
With the continuous cost reductions in computing power, sensors, and networking equipment it becomes tempting to record data wherever we can, upload it to centralised servers, and monetise it with fancy data mining algorithms.
Usually a Reddit post about the state of a company would have to be taken with a pinch of salt. In this case the fight at Google ngIf: ticker GOOGL -0.20% ngIf: show_card end ngIf: ticker over Nest has spilled out and is now being widely discussed. In some cases, by people close to the company. So what’s going wrong at Google, Alphabet and specifically the sub-group Nest?

Mobile operator Vodafone partnered with Philips Lighting, combining an Internet of Things (IoT) network with an LED street light system. This enables the implementation of smart street lighting systems connected wirelessly, saving energy and making maintenance more efficient.
The internet of things (IoT), an interconnected ecosystem of internet-enabled objects—devices, sensors, microprocessors, data hubs, networks, artificial intelligence software and analytics programs—is already being used across the retail industry. Whether it“s monitoring the supply chain, tracking and managing inventory, delivering personalized promotions, or enabling ecommerce from new environments, the retail IoT is ushering in an era in which “smart” things can seamlessly collect, share and analyze real-time data.
