The Internet of Things
In a time when self-lacing shoes can tell your watch what your blood pressure is, and when countries look over and monitor their citizens 24/7 rating them for bad behavior, the Internet of Things (IOT) has become an integral part of our daily life where almost everything is connected. Smart devices, integrated drawing platforms and shared spaces are just a small sample of how the IOT has transformed our life and our built environment today.
With an estimated world population of 7.5 billion in 2020, and an estimated ‘connected things’ by then to be at 50 billion, each person would on average have at least 3 connected things.
When anything can be connected and everything is synced, are we all approaching singularity where individuality, identity and privacy is foregone for technology and convenience? How is the IOT affecting your life and your work and is it an indispensable tool along your productivity line? Every coin has 2 sides.
