Connected Cities Demand a Great User Experience

The capabilities of the Internet of Things are uniting city planners and technology experts everywhere to transform metropolises into smart, connected cities. Smart cities are popping up in Europe and around the world. What we need are systems of experience that represent the people, processes, and technology, giving cities necessary long-term sustainability. How will the IoT help to build cities of the future?   More

Wired Wineries: IoT Fine-Tunes Ancient Processes

Making wine has become as much science as art, and tech is playing an increasing role. Hahn Family Wines in California partners with Verizon to deploy sensors throughout their vineyards. The sensors collect data that is analyzed and used to increase output and improve flavor.   More

Railways on Track for Digital Transformation

The internet of things (IoT) is beginning to transform railroads, despite the industry's longstanding conservatism. The amount of data trains generate is measured in “brontobytes” (millions of times more than a petabyte). It's full steam ahead on all fronts for analytics and increased efficiency. It will all make a real–if hard to notice–difference in our economy.   More

The Fin-ternet of Things: Connecting Everything Means Rethinking Money

The coming world of the Internet of Everything means driverless cars making per-minute toll payments, lightbulbs that pick an energy vendor, IP royalties paid by devices themselves in real time, and investment decisions made by robo-advisors. This more efficient world will mean changes for banks, investment, and the way all of us live.   More

Hello Barbie Hijacked, as Techonomy 2016 Foreshadowed

At Techonomy 2016, panelists revealed shocking security risks associated with embedding the internet in children’s toys. The fear that these devices could be compromised appears to have been warranted. Over the past year, hackers have found a way to turn "Hello Barbie" into a listening device, and have held data ransom. Germany has even banned certain connected toys in their country.   More

How The Internet of Things Will Fight Climate Change

The Internet of Things may shift how our energy system works as much as the steam engine reconfigured Western economies at the start of the industrial revolution. As the world focuses on its climate crisis, we must become more energy-efficient, produce less carbon dioxide, and power more things with electricity from wind and solar. IoT can make it possible.   More

Our Weird Possible Data-Centric Futures: Listen as We Plan Techonomy 2016

Listen in to Techonomy's program planners as they discuss some big issues we're building sessions around for the Techonomy 2016 conference, November 9-11 in California. This year we’ve honed in on the reality that the world is entering a completely new era, as data-gathering of all sorts accumulates across global society. How will society determine who gets to control and utilize data about people? How much will people get access to data about themselves and their communities? What relative powers over data will companies, governments, and individuals have?   More

Smart Neighborhood Data Can Help Small Business

As cities turn themselves into smart cities, a critical component is small business. GoDaddy joined with the Social Computing group at the MIT Media Lab to install sensors in Boston’s Downtown Crossing neighborhood to collect data and use it to help small businesses. Info about pedestrian and vehicle movement, air quality and noise will be combined with retail information in hopes of helping them compete and thrive. I'll talk about this at Techonomy NYC.   More

Reflections from Ross: On Drones and CubeSats

Oceans cover about 71 percent of the earth’s surface. We think of everything as constantly connected, yet in a world where we are drowning in oceans of data the ocean itself is a data dead zone. But there’s a transformation underway. CubeSats and drones are changing not just the way we get access to information about what’s happening on the surface of our planet—from cities to forests to the middle of nowhere—but the frequency at which we get that information.   More

Can We Stop Cybercrime in Healthcare?

New digital health technologies offer seemingly boundless promise to extend and improve our lives. Yet they also expose us to a growing array of security risks that require urgent attention from companies, consumers, and regulators everywhere. Data theft is one of the biggest risks. As data bursts from the seams of healthcare IT systems and consumer health apps, cybercriminals are having a field day.   More

Ross’s Reflections: This Year for Techonomy

Techonomy Program Director Simone Ross spends this time of year combing through articles, videos, arranging meetings, and generally keeping her antennae tuned for new ideas that will feed into our conferences. This year our New York event May 26 is a major focus. As at our November 9-11 annual event in Half Moon Bay, California, the Internet of Things and its many ramifications will be a major topic, along with the many other ways digital connected tech is transforming everything.   More

The Internet of Things: Citizen Friend or Foe?

Two hundred forty years ago, our founding fathers could never have imagined the revolutionary tech we’d have today to engage with our government programs and officials. On this Presidents' Day 2016, the citizen-engagement landscape includes developments that range from e-voting to online petitioning, which are making it easier than ever for everyday people to interact with their city, state, and national governments. Today, the Internet of Things is emerging as another way for citizens to talk with their governments.   More

How the Internet of Things Will Make Products Better and More Personal

As consumers, we expect the world to shape itself around us. Consumer power has been growing for the past several years, and with it, an expectation of products and services that not only meet our particular tastes but also our particular needs over time. But engaging the customer isn’t always straightforward. Even if you’re listening to customers, what if they don’t (or can’t) articulate what they want? What if they have needs they aren’t even aware of yet?   More

Preparing Ourselves for a Fully-Automated Future

As technology forges ahead, more of our world is becoming automated, increasingly resembling the futuristic settings that were once only the domain of science fiction. This means a significant change in the way tomorrow’s innovators will design new products: it won’t just be a matter of human users interacting with objects, but also of objects interacting with their users. Moreover, many people have anxieties about robots and other “smart” objects—usually that they’ll gain sentience, turn evil, and try to exterminate the human race.   More

Reflections from Ross on Techonomy Policy 2015

“What is it we want to borrow from the tech world? The tech itself? Or a fundamentally different way of approaching problems?” Jennifer Pahlka, founder of Code for America, asked in a presentation last week in San Francisco. Her question mirrored one that came up at a number of sessions at our recent Techonomy Policy in Washington, D.C. Techonomy Policy was created to probe ideas at the confluence of tech and policy. We were well aware that there are many events and demands for people’s time in the Beltway, but we wanted to bring something a little different and a little more broad in its approach. The feedback we've gotten from participants suggests we succeeded. People told us it felt like a different kind of conversation for Washington.   More
