The buzz: The Internet of Who (Whom)? The Internet was created in 1969 to facilitate the free flow of information. The IoT inherited this spirit. Fast forward to 2016. With cameras and emerging connected devices collecting and reporting data about our lives, it seems we’re designing the IoT to quantify and see ourselves clearly, like a virtual mirror. It’s time to take a step back and examine what this all means and whom it benefits now and in the future. What to call it? The “IoT of the Self”. Are you ready or do you need to run for cover?
The experts speak. Gray Scott, Futurist: “Technological advances could allow us to see more clearly into our own lives” (Kevin Kelly). David Jonker, SAP: “… if hundreds of millions of people do that, you have a big cloud of data about people's behavior that can be crawled through by pattern recognition algorithms” (John Battelle, The Human Face of Big Data).
