Some time in 2008, the number of things connected to the Internet exceeded the number of people on Earth. And those aren't just computers or smartphones, but everything, including wireless sensors on cattle so that the farmer gets a message when a cow is pregnant or sick.

Why this decade will be the most innovative in history - Vivek Wadhwa @Wadhwa

Why this decade will be the most innovative in history - Vivek Wadhwa @Wadhwa | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

   A wide assortment of technologies are advancing at exponential rates and converging. They are enabling small teams to do what was once only possible for governments and large corporations. These exponential technologies will help us solve many of humanity’s grand challenges, including energy, education, water, food, and health.

   We are innovating at an unprecedented rate. In this and the next decade, we will begin to make energy and food abundant, inexpensively purify and sanitize water from any source, cure disease, and educate the world’s masses. The best part: It isn’t governments that will lead this charge; it will be the world’s entrepreneurs.
