Some automakers tease concept cars with autonomous-driving modes, lounge-style interiors, and augmented-reality windshields and windows, while others tout automatic cruise control, lane-keep systems, and automated parking features as technologies that are the gateway to autonomous driving. But the...
According to McKinsey, there are six reasons we may be underhyping the Internet of Things. Rather than focusing on verticals and industries (the typical way that potential economic value is computed), McKinsey takes a deeper look at the changes taking place in nine different physical “settings” where the Internet of Things will be deployed — home, retail, office, factories, work sites (mining, oil and gas, construction), vehicles, human (health and wellness), outside (logistics and navigation) and cities. Of that $11 trillion in economic value, four of the nine settings top out at more than $1 trillion in projected economic value — factories ($3.7 trillion), cities ($1.7 trillion), health and fitness ($1.6 trillion) and retail ($1.2 trillion). [...] instead of focusing on, say, the automotive industry, McKinsey spreads the benefits of the Internet of Things for automobiles over two settings — “vehicles” and “cities.” If you think the Internet of Things is just about smart homes and fitness devices, think again — McKinsey says the B2B market opportunity could be more than two times the size of the B2C opportunity. According to McKinsey, about 40 percent of the total economic value of the Internet of Things is driven by the ability of all physical devices to talk to each other via computers — what McKinsey refers to as “interoperability.” At same time, isn’t there something bleak about a future in which sensors are hooked up to every object, every setting is predictable and optimized, and pure data guide every decision rather than the human heart?
McKinsey is at the top of the traditional data-gathering game in the traditional business world. Here, they tell us the data suggests the Internet of Things industry insiders are actually being *conservative* when it comes to their products, despite what appears to be hype. #Hypesters Will we move from IoT to implanted technologies as readily as we moved from glasses to contacts to Lasik? #NeoAnthropoGenicPsychology #NAGPsych
Massachusetts Institute of Technology's artificial intelligence program has a machine called the ConceptNet. Researchers from the University of Illinois put it to the test and found its IQ is the same as a 4-year-old's.
Sean Thoennes's insight:
How will it feel? Erikson's initiative vs. guilt? Does its IQ correspond to a 4-year-old's EQ?
