Thanks to Web Summit for inviting the IoT Consortium to lead a discussion on the future of connected devices this week in Lisbon. Thrilled that Cecilia Sevillano of Swiss Re and Jim Hunter of Delos were able to join me.

A few trends to look forward to in 2019 and beyond:

    1. a greater focus on humanity / the “people” behind the things
    2. more health/wellness platforms and services
    3. a greater focus on seniors/aging populations
    4. the emergence of neighborhood networks
    5. multi-factor authentication methods to combat security/privacy risks
    6. more discussion – and alignment – around data
