An article that’s worth reading.
The main point, that seems to me the original part of the speech, is the following equality:
IoT (Internet of Things)
world-size distributed robot across the Internet.
«Through the sensors, we’re giving the Internet eyes and ears. Through the actuators, we’re giving the Internet hands and feet. Through the processing — mostly in the cloud — we’re giving the Internet a brain. Together, we’re creating an Internet that senses, thinks, and acts. This is the classic definition of a robot, and I contend that we’re building a world-sized robot without even realizing it».
The Internet will be a computerized, networked, and interconnected world that we’ll live in, and made with devices often sold at a low margin by companies that simply don’t have the expertise to make them secure: computer security is becoming everything security.
Some emergent properties can eventually arise. These are unexpected behaviors that stem from interaction between the components of a complex system and their environment. In some contexts, emergent properties can be beneficial; users adapt products to support tasks that designers never intended. They can also be harmful if they undermine important safety requirements.
This is a definitely interesting topic.
