In a world of 6.6 billion people, it
does seem hard to believe. The
theory of six degrees of separation
contends that, because we are all
linked by chains of acquaintance,
you are just six introductions away

But yesterday researchers
announced the theory was right -
nearly. By studying billions of
electronic messages, they worked
out that any two strangers are, on
average, distanced by precisely 6.6
degrees of separation.
Internet of Things demography
In demographics, the world population is the total
number of humans currently living. The world
population was estimated to have
reached 7,500,000,000 at 16:21(UTC) on April 24,
2017. The United Nations estimates it will further
increase to 11.2 billion in the year 2100.
7,3 B people on Earth, today
8,3 B Connected Objects, today
Even if the Internet appears ubiquitous, still the number of connected objects or devices is vastly
inferior to those which are not connected. The coming revolution will raise from the necessity of
substituting everyday objects with connected ones, making these more intelligent and aware.
Placing a smart object in a pocket, car, on a desktop or in a
customer’s home allows the building of a personal, always on,
bi-directional communication channel.
This is the opportunity provided by the INTERNET OF THINGS.
The Internet of things (IoT) is the inter-networking of
"connected devices”, vehicles, buildings, and other items
embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators,
and network connectivity, which enable these objects to
collect and exchange data.
In 2013 the Global Standards Initiative on Internet of Things (IoT-GSI) defined the IoT as "a global infrastructure for the information society,
enabling advanced services by interconnecting (physical and virtual) things based on existing and evolving interoperable information and
communication technologies" and for these purposes a "thing" is "an object of the physical world (physical things) or the information world
(virtual things), which is capable of being identified and integrated into communication networks"
