Security is a major concern with those who are watching the development of the Internet of Things. You can read plenty about how security problems are going to be the death of the connected world. After all, no one wants to drive a connected car, only to have a hacker take control.
Yes, security is a concern, but I think there is another factor that could greatly hinder the growth of the Internet of Things, and that is the lack of standardization and ability to communicate across platforms.
You are cordially invited to consider presenting your work at or simply attending the upcoming 4th IEEE/TRB International Conference on Connected Vehicles and Expo (ICCVE 2015) in Shenzhen, China (http://www.iccve.org). As one of the four “tier-1” cities of China, Shenzhen is the largest electronics industry base in China and probably also in the world, and is adjacent to Hong Kong and Macau. Previous ICCVE conferences were held in Beijing (December 2012), Las Vegas (December 2013) and Vienna (November 2014).
Much has been written around a number of related themes such as the Internet of Things, Smart Industry/Industry 4.0, Smart Energy, Smart Cities, Smart Health Care, Smart Homes, Smart Transport, Big Data, Cloud and Anything as a Service. But there is more than technology that meets the eye.

The Internet of things is set to worm its way into many areas of our lives, but as our cars and domestic appliances become connected how can we be certain that they’re secure? We’ve already seen issues with cars being hacked and do you really want to be installing security software on your fridge?
The new 5G innovation centre (5GIC) is the world’s largest academic research complex dedicated to the next generation of mobile and wireless connectivity, but it has been stressed this work is not simply an upgrade of 4G technology.

Hortonworks CEO Rob Bearden says connected devices are driving demand for Hadoop.
For years, the open source Hadoop project for managing huge amounts of data has been in the spotlight, but it hasn’t necessarily lived up to its hype. Now it might have finally found its killer app in the Internet of things.
When will we stop blaming the victim and tell device manufacturers to step up on security?
Those connected thermostats and lightbulbs the tech world is so excited about? Well, the Federal Bureau of Investigation isn’t so sure about them. In a public service announcement issued last week the nation’s law enforcement agency warned that connected devices pose a risk because they open up new avenues of attack. The PSA mentions everything from lightbulbs and wearables to network connected printers (!) and fuel monitoring systems.

I can't stress enough how much the oil market has improved over the last few years.
No, don't quote the current Baker Hughes rig number, and don't check the current oil price — both are at multi-year lows, I know.
But the truth is that amid that massive drop, the oil industry has made some major gains. The very technology has recently changed in a big way.
And just as I know we're in a low-price glut, I also know this is only the beginning of the growth we'll be seeing in the industry.
