What to expect when everything’s connected
A future of ubiquitous computing — in traditional devices but also in everyday appliances and home goods — is near. Ahead of our Mobilize even next week we asked 10 thought leaders what this means for us.
We expect the Internet to grow from having 2.4 billion people, each with one to three devices online, today to hosting 5 billion people and
50 billion devices by 2020. How will our interactions, data, design and homes change when this happens? How do we need to change our networks, our thinking on security and our regulations? These are some of the questions we asked 10 thought leaders ahead of our Mobilize event on Oct. 16 and 17th.
We published the essays over the previous two weeks, but we also wanted to pull them into one place so people can reference them in their larger context and think about how ubiquitous computing will change our world. Pick your favorites, or read them all.
