Michael Mandel, PPI’s Chief Economic Strategist, will be speaking at the Internet of Everything Summit in Rome on July 3, 2014, at 9:25 AM. He will be addressing the question, “Can the Internet of Everything Bring Back the High-Growth Economy?”
The description of the event is as follows:
People, things, processes and data used to function in a separate and independent manner, but the next step in the evolution of the Internet is to bring them together in the Internet of Everything (IoE). This will be done by combining the machine-to-machine (M2M) and people-to-machine (P2M) connections of the Internet of Things with the people-to-people (P2P) connections of the Web and mobile telephony in such a way that people and things can collaborate by exchanging the data and information made available by integrated and shared processes.
The IoE is based on a new technological infrastructure that combines networks of sensors for personal use and/or incorporated in other objects, products and things with wireless connectivity in such a way that they become intelligent sources of new data and information, and are made available for the development of a new ecosystem of systems and services. This will transform the competitive dynamics between the various economic and industrial sectors and what has been called the Industrial Internet, and see the emergence of new players.
If you think of what opportunities can be generated by IoE united with technologies for the advanced analysis of big data in terms of value, economic growth potential and new employment (aspects that a study by the Progressive Policy Institute has already described as having taken place in the United States), it is not difficult to imagine the changes facing individuals, companies, and public organisations.
