Une nouvelle étude de la Commission recense les grands pôles européens des TIC
Vous souhaitez savoir quelles sont les régions les plus dynamiques dans le domaine des technologies de l'information et de la communication (TIC)? Pointez donc votre curseur sur Munich, Londres ou Paris dans le nouvel atlas de l'UE des pôles des TIC, ou sur l'une des villes plus petites qui y sont également répertoriées, comme Darmstadt. Cet atlas permet de voir dans quelles régions de l'Union européenne les technologies numériques prospèrent et examine les facteurs qui y contribuent.
En Europe, la majeure partie de l'activité dans le domaine des TIC se concentre dans 34 régions réparties dans 12 pays (énumérées dans l’annexe). Parmi les clés de la réussite figurent l'accès aux meilleures universités et aux grands centres de recherche, ainsi que les possibilités de financement telles que le capital-risque.
Mme Neelie Kroes (@NeelieKroesEU) a déclaré à ce propos: «Cela prouve que pour réussir dans le secteur du numérique, il faut être prêt à investir, être ouvert à l’innovation et savoir planifier. Pour être un leader mondial dans le domaine de la technologie, l'Europe doit aujourd'hui renforcer ces valeurs.»

This can only mean one thing: We’re living in the Internet of Things.
With anything and everything — including trees, insects, pill bottles, and sinks — going online, Cisco projects the Internet of Things to be a $14 trillion revenue opportunity.Helping people remember their daily medicine with light-up bottle caps and preventing illegal logging and monitoring traffic in real-time are worthwhile goals. But they are point solutions. They don’t resonate in our lives in ways that make it impossible to imagine how we lived without them.
In order for the Internet of Things to truly work, context about ourselves (think interests, location, intent) is required. Here are some reasons why the Internet of Things will only come to fruition in identity is incorporated into the user experience.
A wristband that measures your steps and heart rate is a helpful fitness tool. However, if that’s all it does, then it is nothing more than a tool, no matter how many other devices it can connect to. But what about a wristband that knows the wearer’s identity, understands his fitness routines, and tells the treadmill to speed up or slow down based on the wearer’s heart rate and exercise goals?
This sort of personalized connectedness delivers true value and breeds customer loyalty by tapping into each user’s unique situation and background. And it all starts with a deep understanding of of users’ identities.
In the Internet of Things, devices need to participate in a constant conversation with one another, their owners’ social feeds, and outside field of interest. Any device which relies on a one-time data dump will quickly become irrelevant. Connected devices need to be able not only to verify identity but also be flexible enough to grow and adapt as new channels and data points emerge.
The Internet of Things should model the kind of tailored, identity-driven recommendations today’s consumer is accustomed to receiving from leading brands like Amazon, Netflix and Spotify. To compare and contrast, let’s say you have a refrigerator that reorders eggs when you run out. Such a feature would be helpful, but likely would not deliver enough value to gain widespread adoption. However, if your refrigerator automatically shops for a recipe you just pinned, and recommends three new options for dinner based on what you have in the house and your dinner party, that’s extraordinary.
Experts believe the Internet of Things and wearables will have a widespread effect on the way we live our everyday lives by 2025. (Wearable and embedded computing is the next revolution in digital technology.
