INTERNET OF THINGS WITH EVA KAILI: A EUROPEAN INTERNET OF THINGS


A European Internet of Things

Eva Kaili, Member of the European Parliament, Chair of STOA, the European Parliament’s Science and Technology Options Assessment body talks about misinformation, misperception, our right to choose and jobs as well as education and 5G networks.

Helga Benedictus Oorschot

I believe the future of education is a networked future. People can use the Internet to create and share knowledge and develop new ways of teaching and learning that captivate and stimulate students’ imagination at any time, anywhere, using any device. What do you all think?

The Industrial Internet will foster industry and government collaboration on global architecture standards that address cybersecurity concerns.  We are starting to see this happen now with the collaboration between the Industrial Internet Consortium and Industrie 4.0, with the backing of the EU.

Europe’s expertise in engineering and science should enable it to dominate the “internet of things”, according to the EU’s science and research chief. But Carlos Moedas admits the bloc’s companies were slow to grasp the rise of the app-based digital economy. “We missed it,” he says, referring to the success of Silicon Valley and companies such as Google and Facebook in developing services that have transformed the lives of European consumers. 
 

Joonas,

A bright spot for the EU is that its pool of science and technology graduates is increasing. According to Brussels data, the number rose by almost a quarter between 2008 and 2015, although women remain under-represented.

Companies on either side of the Atlantic are also seeking different things from the IoT. Twice as many European executives as Americans said using the IoT to improve the quality of existing products was a priority for them. Meanwhile, three out of four American executives want to use the IoT to cut costs and reduce waste, compared with 35% in Europe. Manufacturers in Europe are understandably proud of their global reputation for superior quality, and they expect the IoT to help them build on that legacy.

@Dorothea: do you have a link for this Expo ?

Vincent,

I found it.  Here it is: link

There is another Expo that take places in London in April 2019 (The Leading Global IoT Conference) but I am not really sure what the difference will be between the two.

@Dorothea: do you have a link for this Expo ?

Dorothea Petrescu

You know there is an IoT Tech Expo that takes place in Europe.  Next year it will be in Amsterdam on the 19-20 June and will bring together key industries for 2 days of top level content and discussion. They say this conference is not to be missed as it explores the latest innovations within the Internet of Things and covers the impact IoT has on many industries including Manufacturing, Transport, Supply Chain, Insurance, Logistics, Government, Energy and Automotive.

George,


Here is some interesting news on the Right to be Forgotten.  Thanks to a 2014 European Court of Justice ruling Europeans have a “right to delist,” meaning that individuals, corporations and even government officials could request that material be removed from Google’s search results, if deemed “inaccurate, inadequate, irrelevant or excessive,” and not related to discourse regarding the public interest. While most Americans support this so-called “right-to-be-forgotten,” the prospects of similar legislation or court decision in the U.S. are dim.

I was intrigued by the statement that in the adoption of 5G, Europe is lagging behind China and the US.  Most articles on the Web, however, seem to confirm that statement.  Here is one European point of view on the subject.

Aleksey Tyomkin

I am trying to figure out how the European legislation on Data Protection is different than the one adopted in the US.  Anyone care to comment?

George Waters

Your comments on the Right to Be Forgotten were very interesting.  I am currently researching the topic and writing a paper on it myself.

Guido Romeo

I guess one should  be very careful on predictions about the actual impact of blockchains and their disruptive power. It's a technology, not a solution. Moreover, Gartner has recently pointed out that there are very few deployments and a huge hype that will see 9 out of 10 of the present blockchain project fail in the next years.
