IoT: Ontological and Anthropological Perspective
The Internet of Things is a vision. It is being build 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. Council is a think tank that advises corporations, public organizations, individuals and institutions on how to manage and facilitate the changes that the Internet of Things will bring. The purpose of Council is to forecast what will happen when smart objects surround us in smart homes, offces, streets, and cities. Forecast... and build.
