INTERNET OF THINGS WITH ROB VAN KRANENBURG: THE ROAD AHEAD


The road ahead

Rob van Kranenburg, Founder of IoT Council, Ecosystem Manager for EU projects TagitSmart and Next Generation Internet talks about the splinternet, protocols, security, governance, basic income, Robert Reich and millenials.

Professor Dodds

We’ve been hearing about how the Internet of Things is coming soon and will be integrated into smart cities. But in reality, it is already here, and starting to affect how we live and work in the cities. Technology professionals should be aware of the opportunities for IoT and smart city solutions.

Ruben Gansen

The IoT has a lot to offer businesses, both for tech firms looking to get in on the actions and for the numerous industries that are being transformed by the injection of smart, connected technology into manufacturing processes, supply chains, customer engagement, performance tracking and other areas. 

Maksymilian Czerniak

The IoT is going to significantly impact various industry verticals and in turn is going to change our future. And as it is going to have an impact on different verticals, there are going to be new and exciting careers in IoT. Different fields like that of healthcare, agriculture, data security, automobiles have already adopted and become an integral part of IoT will have a lot of jobs in the future.

IOT is a system of connected devices where there is a no human intervention for controlling it. The devices can be computers, electronic devices or mechanical devices controlled via electronics (cameras). These devices can communicate among themselves without human intervention.  These connected devices can provide real time analysis's for more accurate estimations. Example the heart rate monitoring devices, health bands (which provides information about your body temperature, BP, heart rate). This information guides or helps the user to take the appropriate actions.

The Internet of Everything clearly puts the emphasis on the outcomes, the many possible changes in business models, leveraging this large interconnected space. The Internet of Everything view also requires a high degree of standardization and interoperability. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Cisco is very active in standardization bodies and efforts.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Helga Breitner

IoT security is also plagued by a lack of industry-accepted standards. While many IoT security frameworks exist, there is no single agreed-upon framework. Large companies and industry organizations may have their own specific standards, while certain segments, such as industrial IoT, have proprietary, incompatible standards from industry leaders. The variety of these standards makes it difficult to not only secure systems, but also ensure interoperability between them.

Janko Kyllikki

Connecting legacy assets not inherently designed for IoT connectivity is another security challenge. Replacing legacy infrastructure with connected technology is cost-prohibitive, so many assets will be retrofitted with smart sensors. However, as legacy assets that likely have not been updated or ever had security against modern threats, the attack surface is expanded.

In response to future hacker

A number of challenges prevent the securing of IoT devices and ensuring end-to-end security in an IoT environment. Because the idea of networking appliances and other objects is relatively new, security has not always been considered top priority during a product's design phase. Additionally, because IoT is a nascent market, many product designers and manufacturers are more interested in getting their products to market quickly, rather than taking the necessary steps to build security in from the start.

A major issue cited with IoT security is the use of hardcoded or default passwords, which can lead to security breaches. Even if passwords are changed, they are often not strong enough to prevent infiltration.

The hype around the Internet of Things continues to grow, and some commentators have suggested IoT could be a boon to analytics by serving as a major source of data. But it's unclear whether today's companies are ready to take advantage of IoT's potential.

In response to Luned Birutė Mag Raith

If we had computers that knew everything there was to know about things – using data they gathered without any help from us – we would be able to track and count everything, and greatly reduce waste, loss and cost. We would know when things needed replacing, repairing or recalling, and whether they were fresh or past their best.

Luned,

Most people think about being connected in terms of computers, tablets and smartphones. IoT describes a world where just about anything can be connected and communicate in an intelligent fashion. In other words, with the internet of things, the physical world is becoming one big information system.

The Web of Things (WoT) is a computing concept that describes a future where everyday objects are fully integrated with the Web. The prerequisite for WoT is for the "things" to have embedded computer systems that enable communication with the Web. Such smart devices would then be able to communicate with each other using existing Web standards.

Francesca Di Napoli

In computing, ambient intelligence refers to electronic environments that are sensitive and responsive to the presence of people. Ambient intelligence is a vision on the future of consumer electronics, telecommunications and computing that was originally developed in the late 1990s. In an ambient intelligence world, devices work in concert to support people in carrying out their everyday life activities, tasks and rituals in an easy, natural way using information and intelligence that is hidden in the network connecting these devices (for example: The Internet of Things).

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Helga Breitner

Information security and data protection are critical to many IoT environments. Markets where personal information is scrutinized and regulated by government agencies, such as healthcare and insurance, are a couple examples. Designing in security becomes top of mind for architects building solutions for such markets.
