Sophie Curtis: „Joshua Windmiller, CEO of Electrozyme, is an internationally-recognized expert in printed biosensor technology. Electrozyme has developed a printed electrochemical sensor platform that enables the analysis of the chemical constituents of a wearer’s perspiration in a real-time, non-invasive fashion. We had a quick Q&A with Joshua about the opportunities and challenges of implementing Internet of Things (IoT) technologies.

Cerf spoke in a conversation with Startup Grind's Brian Park Monday night at Google's D.C. headquarters. Cerf gets his title for co-inventing a lot of the basic structure of the Internet, especially the protocols that make email possible. Now he is focused on all kinds of big projects that Google is working on and the future of the Internet itself.

Speaking on CBS' "60 Minutes," Corney implied that a number of countries are trying to break into US networks frequently, but the Chinese are at the top of the list. When asked what a typical day looked like for law enforcement concerned with cybercrime, Corney likened the problem to an "evil layer cake," — the top layer full of nation state actors, organized

But it is still an immature and technology-driven field, and there are many barriers to creating compelling consumer products. This book explains in simple terms what the challenges are and explores practical solutions for solving them. Drawing on the best of current design practice and academic research, Designing Connected Products provides an introduction to the technology of IoT and practical guidance on designing for diverse devices

But what do some of the world's experts think? A Pew Research survey conducted back in May questioned 1,600 experts on what the Internet of Things will look like in 2025.The results ranged from fascinating to terrifying. Here are some the wildest predictions from the survey:
- a realization that a local version of IoT is entirely feasible and doable in terms of conceptual architecture, designing the semantic layer that identitfes building blocks on a high abstract level so that objects, actions and infrastructure can be described in the same way and usecases can be build in a unified way.

While they were effective in notifying the whole neighbourhood about what was going on inside your house, you were probably the last to know if you were anywhere out of earshot of that deafening alarm. Today, you can monitor everything in your home from afar, via a simple app on your smartphone. SmartThings is an app that offers security and peace of mind by connecting your physical home environment to the internet, allowing you to monitor, control, and automate everything from anywhere.

According to Gartner, there will be nearly 26 billion IoT devices by 2020. As more things connect to the Internet, states are starting to tap the IoT to provide resources to their citizens. For example, the North Carolina Innovation Center — or iCenter, for short — plans to implement sensors in museums and aquariums throughout the state.

To do that will be a simple matter in the future. A Nike executive will simply pull up a list of sensors operated by a private weather station, selecting the ones from which she would like to buy data.
With a click, the executive will pay individual sensors – perhaps thermostats mounted in a Central Park pathway particularly favoured by joggers – for their data, using bitcoin. The weather sensors will be just one part of a future market
