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.

Peter Friess (DG Connect): European Research Cluster on the Internet of Things, October Newsletter

Source: “IoT is no longer science- fiction but around the corner, promising to bring smart devices everywhere, from the fridge to the car, from the home to the hospital to the city. Connected devices will be powered by intelligence (embedded or in the network) to deliver new services and applications. These applications will offer significant beneits like helping users save energy, reduce traffic jams, increase comfort, and get better healthcare and increased independence.“ Read more about Peter Friess (DG Connect): European Research Cluster on the Internet of Things, October Newsletter



Giulio Coraggio: Top 5 Internet of Things takeaways from the Web Summit


Source: “ I attended this week the Web Summit in Dublin focusing in particular to the section dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT) from which I was able to gain very interesting insights on legal issues . And here is my top 5 chart of the most relevant legal topics:
1. Interoperability and interaction of Internet of Things devices
2. Is there a right of privacy?
3. Drones as data gathers
4. Smart city and smart home devices might make us more efficient
5. People need to know what happens to their data

Tyler Waldman: Why the ‘internet of things’ took center stage at Exelon’s exec panel

Source: "Today, with a flick of a few fingers on your iPhone, you can adjust your thermostat, order lunch or even turn on your car. While some raise privacy and other concerns, this is all quickly becoming accepted — and for industry leaders, the question is quickly becoming how to adjust and take advantage of these advances to improve services to consumers. In a panel at Exelon’s third Innovation Expo, held at M&T Bank Stadium Tuesday, Exelon CEO Chris Crane, General Electric Energy


Paul Rubens : How to Develop Applications for the Internet of Thing

Startups offering data ingestion platforms take much of the hard work out of developing for the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things is exploding, and it's not hard to explain why it's happening now. The sensors, networking chips and other technology required to connect to the Internet devices ranging from light bulbs to smartwatches to industrial equipment


Janice Tai: Secrets of a smart city

With a population that is the world's oldest, Japan is tapping its expertise in robots to provide nursing and social care. At the Japan Robot Week 2014 exhibition in Tokyo two weeks ago, more than 140 firms showed off their latest creations, many of which were designed to facilitate care for the elderly or infirm. "The ageing society is a big issue for this country as in the future there may be too few


Gary Sharma: Weekend Read: The Imminent Decentralized Computing Revolution

Power concentrated in the hands of a few has always been at risk of corruption, greed and chaos.
Decentralization transfers that power from individuals and corporations to technology and immutable math, leading to reduced overheads, improved security, more resiliency and higher efficiency.
There are three technologies that will form the foundation of the decentralized computing stack — mesh networks (decentralized networking), block chain (decentralized transactions) and autonomous agents (decentralized decision making).”


Jason Dorrieron: The Internet of Things Should ‘Rattle the Imagination’

Source: “We’ve often written about the “Internet of Things.” This is the idea that as chips get smaller, more energy efficient, and more connected, we’ll embed them in everything around us to enliven inanimate objects and get them to do our bidding. This enormous new digital network will mirror the internet in the material world. It will be a massive grid of interconnected nodes collecting information, executing commands, and just generally chattering away to each other day and night. When you first see the potential of an idea like that, it might be mindblowing.


Stacey Higginbotham: The internet of things needs developers. So what do developers need?

Source: “The internet of things doesn’t need proprietary software and M2M platforms, it needs developers. The key isn’t the things, but the data these things generate and the applications that will be built on top of them.
When it comes to the enterprise there’s a lot of interest in the internet of things, but also a lot of confusion as today’s tech giants struggle to take advantage of this shift. Most see it as a systems integration opportunity rife with service revenue and magic boxes


Orion Jones: The Internet of Things Will Make You Poor, Surveilled, and Alone

Source: “Futurists who believe endlessly in the miracle of technology are seizing on the approaching Internet of Things as the next harbinger of leisure, independence, and fun in the sun. But a more measured approach forecasts a very different future, argues Sue Halpern, who reviews three books on the subject at the New York Review of Books.  The glaring security lapses that have accompanied financial data stored by corporations will be expanded upon when everything is connected to the Internet, including your washing
