The Internet of Things

Deciding my last post touched upon the “internet of things” a little too quickly, I wanted to give the idea its own proper post. This introductory video, brought to you by IBM’s “Smarter Planet” campaign, illustrates the theological framework behind it. A growing economy is often the result of higher productivity and efficiency; the application possibilities for smarter grids are endless.

Though we are already beginning to see the start of this smart revolution, the “internet of things” has yet to come into full fruition. In a few years there will be more devices connected to the internet than people. Devices will communicate more efficiently than we would ever hope, making information grids incredibly productive ecosystems of data. The information age is rapidly approaching and companies like IBM are setting up the foundation blocks.

How might your future change with a smarter grid?
