Bringing it all togetherInternet with things? Web of things?
Internet of Things● Blend of electronics, software and connectivity● Early stage: need for low-cost experimentation● Collaborative● Well-supported by open hardware and software● However, to reach its potential, it must be about much more than connectivity
Semantic challenge APIs are not enough Bad practice Good practiceInspired by W3C semantic web paper
Real IoT needsMostly still to-do:● Standards for protocols (incl. real-time)● Standard APIs● Standard Semantic Framework● Standard for Discoverability● Standards for Data Access permissioning Much less need to standardise low level hardware
