The Internet of Things will make substantial inroads into many aspects of everyday life in the next decade, according to predictions by more than 1,600 experts cited in a report about the future of the Internet by the Pew Research Center.

 
According to futurist Paul Saffo, managing director of Discern Analytics, most of these devices will be communicating on our behalf, interacting with the physical and virtual worlds more than interacting with us.
 
“The devices are going to disappear into what we wear and/or carry. For example, the glasses interface will shrink to near-invisibility in conventional glasses. The devices will also become robustly inter-networked. … “The biggest shift is a strong move away from a single do-everything device to multiple devices with overlapping functions and, above all, an inter-relationship with our other devices.”
 
“These experts say the next digital revolution is the expanding and often-invisible spread of the Internet of Things,” noted Janna Anderson, director of the Imagining the Internet Center and a co-author of the report.
 
“They expect positive change that will impact health, transportation, shopping, industrial production and the environment. But they also warn about the privacy implications of this new data-saturated world and about the complexities involved in making networked devices work together.”

The bad one is of course privacy - this issue is very serious. For both, bad and good the main obstacle remains: how to integrate and analyse these data Reply
