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
