Empathy in the Internet of Things

  1. 1. Empathy in the Internet of Things Paul Coulton
  2. 2. if you see somebody begging under a bridge you might feel sorry for them or toss them a coin, but that’s not empathy, it’s sympathy or pity. Empathy is when you have a conversation with them, try to understand how they feel about life, what it’s like sleeping outside on a cold winter’s night – try to make a real human connection and see their individuality : George Orwell
