At the end of the 14th century, a handful of Italian intellectuals banded together to help create a "rinascita" (rebirth) of learning. These Renaissance intellectuals blended literature, art and culture to help drive innovation and the first true "smart" cities were born.
Now seven centuries later, we have encountered a core set of technological game-changers.
Here's a question: What is the Internet of Things?
You've probably heard this term tossed around a lot recently, and it might seem like some airy concept, but it's actually more tangible than you'd think.
OK — the Internet of Things is technically a concept, but the reason it's tangible is because it involves everyday things in your home, like an appliance, that would connect to the Internet. And when those devices analyze data about you and your habits, they become a lot more useful. But these devices go a step further and also recognize other devices.

Streaking across the Taiwanese hinterland on its superfast bullet-train service, presented with an apparently endless vista of light industrial units, crowded freeways and shabby apartment blocks, something becomes immediately obvious to the first-time visitor: Taiwan is taking capitalism to the extreme.
Internet of Things World spoke to Gary Barnett, Chief Analyst – Software at industry analyst Ovum, to make sense of all the hype around IoT and identify some of the ways in which it really could transform the world, including health, industry and agriculture.
The Internet of Things Solutions World Congress (IOTSWC) closed its doors today on a high note after three days of strong industry engagement and top level conferences.

Industry research firm Gartner recently reported that the Internet of Things (IoT) is going to impact businesses with its exponential adoption rate reaching 26 billion devices by 2020. Gartner said “that IoT product and service suppliers will generate incremental revenue exceeding $300 billion, mostly in services, in 2020. It will result in $1.9 trillion in global economic value-add through sales into diverse end markets.” Businesses can’t afford to miss this opportunity for tremendous growth.
Fresh out of topping Gartner’s most hyped technologies list for the second year in a row, the Internet of Things (IoT) has kept its buzz going over the last couple of weeks with a series of announcements and new market analysis reports. First, here’s a sample of recent announcements:
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.
