IoTMeetupGuildford#1: SOCIOTAL EU - Rob Van Kranenburg (Resonance Design)

  1. 1. What  does  a  ‘Smart  UK’  a  ‘Smart  Europe  or  world’  looks  like,  and   what  can  you  do  to  help  that  happen?  
  2. 2. The Internet of Things, ecology of barcodes, qr codes, rfid, active sensors, ipv6 logical extension of the computer to the environment, the environment as interface (ubicomp, pervasive computing, Mark Weiser 1991) seamless flow between the ² BAN (body area network) : ambient hearing aides, t-shirts (ehealth) ² LAN (local area nework) : smart meter, home interface (convenience services) ² WAN (wide area network) : the car (eCall) ² VWAN (very wide area network) : the ‘smart’ or ‘wise’ city (e- gov services) council
  3. 3. 1914.  2014.  What  a  difference  a  century  makes:  This  year  in  March,  German   Chancellor  Angela  Merkel  opened  CeBIT  with  its  partner  country  UK.  The  BriMsh   Prime  Minister  David  Cameron  keynoted:  “ Take  BriMsh  ingenuity  in  soRware,  services  and  design,  add  German  excellence  in   engineering  and  industrial  manufacturing  and  together  we  can  lead  in  this  new   revoluMon.”  The  revoluMon  he  is  talking  about  is  the  Internet  of  Things  (IoT)  –  an   area  in  which  both  countries  see  huge  potenMals.         The  UK  government  will  spend  an  extra  £45m  on  developing  IoT  technology:    "I   see  the  internet  of  things  as  a  huge  transformaMve  development  –  a  way  of   boosMng  producMvity,  of  keeping  us  healthier,  making  transport  more  efficient,   reducing  energy  needs,  tackling  climate  change."   With  Germany’s  long-­‐standing  manufacturing  tradiMon,  Industry  4.0  is  also  one  of   the  projects  for  the  future  under  the  German  government’s  High-­‐Tech  Strategy.         council
  4. 4. We  can  call  this  progress  indeed.  But  for  Europe  to  become  leading  in  IoT,  a  lot   more  is  needed.  This  work  needs  to  be  done  primarily  by  the  engineering  /   technological  communiMes,  whether  it  is  in  research,  large  industry  or  SME.  They   have  to  become  more  poliMcal.  I  do  not  make  this  statement  out  of  the  blue  –   this  has  been  done  before.  I  think  of  Robert  Bosch:  It  is  exactly  because  of  the   strong  focus  on  society  and  ethics  that  he  was  able  to  lay  the  foundaMons  for   what  is  currently  one  of  the  largest  privately  held  company  on  earth.       The  kind  of  world  that  I  want  and  that  is  within  reach  for  the  Internet  of  Things   provides  generic  infrastructures  that  are  open  for  even  smallest  communiMes  to   the  scale  of  1  to  build  applicaMons,  services  and  personalized  hardware  on  and   from.     council
  5. 5. The  crucial  next  step  is  building  a  EU  pladorm  that  aligns  the  technological   realiMes  of  today  with  the  decision  making  systems  that  are  complexity  friendly.   And  this  is  a  job  for  engineers  and    makers,  the  Internet  of  Things  community   that  is  a  radically  new  intelligence  that  resembles  that  of  the  old  guilds  but  is  a   highly  connected  dynamic  amalgam  of  large  industry,  individual  Mnkerers,  30.000   makers  involved  in  IoT  Meetups,  loosely  organized  hacker  networks  all   demanding  more  common  sense,  accountability  and  real  Mme  data  streams   informing  decision-­‐making  whether  it  is  about  health,  home,  mobility,  city  or   global  issues  like  Climate  Change.   council
  6. 6. VIC  Studio  PowerPoint  template   Keep  content  off  the  lower  porMon  of   the  screen  if  possible,  as  the  display  goes   all  the  way  to  the  floor  
  7. 7. Pessimism  of  the  intelligence,   opMmism  of  the  will  –  Gramsci   What  does  a  smart  Guildford  look  like?   Which  direcMon  is  it  going?  Who  is  co-­‐ creaMng?
