  2. 2. Internet of Things: [guest blog] Luxury for the Rich or Sustainable Equity for All? @NewsNeus @RayGallon Read the full article Hyper-connected devices are expanding the ability to automatically transfer information machine-to-machine (M2M) without human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction… Is this a luxury for the rich or an opportunity to provide a standard set of resources for everyone?
  3. 3. Internet of Things: Definition In Ivy Wigmore’s words: “A thing, in the Internet of Things, can be a person with a heart monitor implant, a farm animal with a biochip transponder, an automobile that has built-in sensors to alert the driver when tire pressure is low — or any other natural or man-made object that can be assigned an IP address and provided with the ability to transfer data over a network.” @NewsNeus @RayGallon
  4. 4. It’s coming! How will you feel when the milk you bought in the super market tells your fridge it is going bad and it’s time to order more? Ref: @NewsNeus @RayGallon
  5. 5. It’s coming! • Can you imagine a road sign, on a highway, telling a tourist’s telephone what it says, in the tourist’s own language? @NewsNeus @RayGallon
  6. 6. It’s here! Do you know that in 2015 new European cars will call an ambulance in a crash before the driver can phone, or even if he can’t? To know more: @NewsNeus @RayGallon
  7. 7. Useful? How will you react if your window calls the police and your insurance company because it’s been broken, without letting you know in advance? @NewsNeus @RayGallon
  8. 8. Superfluous? • My carpet changes color according to the temperature of the under-floor heating system. • Lights in the house switch on at different intensities depending on who enters the room. • The dishwasher will start as soon as I (and my telephone) leave for the office in the morning. • An electrical generator safely and automatically shuts down when a sensor has determined that a main bearing is about to break. • The door-handle of a hospital intensive care ward refuses to open the door because it has detected a fevered hand from an unknowing visitor. • The baby bottle blocks the flow of formula because it’s too hot and it might burn the baby’s mouth. • Your bathing suit changes colour to indicate a high concentration of metallic pollutants in the lake where you are swimming. @NewsNeus @RayGallon
  9. 9. Multiple layers to think about… @NewsNeus @RayGallon
