Internet of Things explained: What is it, and can it really change the world?

Internet of Things explained: What is it, and can it really change the world? | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

The Internet of Things (IoT, for short) is a phrase for when everyday objects are connected to the internet and participating together on a system, though it also means the convergence of conventional connected devices and smart appliances‏.

 

The goal is to have people seamlessly retrieve knowledge and function on a day-to-day basis without having to sit down at a computer or talk to another human. It's like ubiquitous computing, but it goes beyond Google Glass and extends to every home, car, business, building and system in the world.

Big Bang Disruption: The Internet of Things Takes Off Gradually and then Suddenly

Big Bang Disruption: The Internet of Things Takes Off Gradually and then Suddenly | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

One of the main drivers of Big Bang Disruptors is the constantly improving price and performance of information technologies.  For years, computer processors, memory, and communications capacity have experienced regular, even predictable, growth that is nearly exponential.  Everything gets twice as fast and half as expensive every few years.

The People vs. System Conundrum

The People vs. System Conundrum | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

The People vs. System Conundrum I’ve seen recently that some folks have difficulty reconciling Deming’s 95% rule: "Dr. Deming taught me that 95% of the performance of an organization is attributable t.o the individual" with Jerry Weinberg’s Second Law of Consulting:“No matter how it looks at first, it’s always a people problem.”

Nice resolution from Bob Marshall -It is always a people problem (as per Weinberg), but the solution is not to try to change the people (that’s a pointless red herring). Rather, the solution is to change the system (as per Deming).

Future of Work: 3 Big Predictions

Future of Work: 3 Big Predictions | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

Computing pioneer Alan Kay had some advice in the 1980s that Steve Jobs clearly took to heart: "People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware." Enough said, right? Kay's prescience came to mind again when Google recently announced it was buying Nest, maker of the smart home thermostat, for $3.2 billion.

That's not pocket change, and it's prompted the digerati to proclaim once again that hardware is the new software. And they're absolutely right. The Internet of Things has gone mainstream. Here are three predictions on what it will do to the way you work:

Rise of the 'Thingernet'

Until now, the conversation around the Internet of Things, a neologism that imagines a future dominated by machine-to-machine communications, has been a low murmur--at least outside of tech circles. But with Google's acquisition of Nest (and its $13 billion buyout of Motorola before that), that buzzing has been amplified into a full-blown chorus. We're no longer talking about automatic syncing between a smartphone and a computer or the on/off switch on a Bluetooth device. It's becoming increasingly obvious that the Internet of Things (or, "Thingernet," as The Economist calls it) is rapidly changing the way we, as humans, interact. Just as important, the Internet of Things is fundamentally reshaping how we work.

Beyond Big Data: Identifying Important Information for Real World Challenges

Beyond Big Data: Identifying Important Information for Real World Challenges | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

Much of human inquiry today is focused on collecting massive quantities of data about complex systems, with the underlying assumption that more data leads to more insight into how to solve the challenges facing humanity. However, the questions we wish to address require identifying the impact of interventions on the behavior of a system, and to do this we must know which pieces of information are important and how they fit together. Here we describe why complex systems require different methods than simple systems and provide an overview of the corresponding paradigm shift in physics. We then connect the core ideas of the paradigm shift to information theory and describe how a parallel shift could take place in the study of complex biological and social systems. Finally, we provide a general framework for characterizing the importance of information. Framing scientific inquiry as an effort to objectively determine what is important and unimportant rather than collecting as much information as possible is a means for advancing our understanding and addressing many practical biological and social challenges.

Understanding Complexity - IT's not that simple!

Understanding Complexity - IT's not that simple! | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

People like to say, “keep it simple, stupid.” It's a down-home remedy for our overly complex, technology infused modern life. Like much good advice, it is often given, but rarely followed. The problem is that simplicity is not so simple. We live in a complex universe where much that happens is beyond our control. Merely wishing things to be simpler does not make it so. In fact, making facile assumptions often leads to disaster ...
