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

PCMag.com Covers Techonomy’s Focus on IoT

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

Clinton, Trump, and the World’s Choices

The world is at a turning point and we have to choose. It is astonishing and daunting how fully Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump symbolize the choice the world faces. Watching their debate last week underscored for me not just how different the two of them are, but how different are the possible futures that confront the world.   More

Reflections from Ross: On Techonomy 2016 (of course)

We’re 6 weeks out from our annual Techonomy conference. It starts the day after the election, so we’ll talk intensely about what the outcome means for business, the tech industry, and tech as a tool. Much content this year relates to the continuing march of the Internet of Things. And we'll tackle longer-term questions like whether, once AI intersects with the IoT, this ultimately leads to a sentient cyber ecosystem that intuits and responds to our every move. We'll also talk about cities, shipping, and social media. It's the conference for people who want to understand tech deeply so they can be more effective.   More

Connected Vehicles Make Cities Smarter

With the vast majority of the human population soon in cities, we know we have to leverage information technology to enhance city services, increase safety and improve quality of life. It turns out that the cheapest solution to acquire massive amounts of actionable urban data as well as expand urban wireless coverage may be to rapidly connect as many vehicles moving around the city as possible. An effort to do that in Porto, Portugal is well underway.   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

Why Verizon is Betting on The Internet of Things

In a comprehensive new report released Tuesday, Verizon outlines why this Internet of Things (IoT) transition is critical to business. The company has products, a platform, and enormous enthusiasm for this transformation.   More

Post-CES, Four Questions about the Internet of Things

Connected refrigerators, bras that monitor your heart rate, and, of course, autonomous vehicles were the kinds of things CES attendees focused on this year. It now seems inevitable that more or less everything will eventually be connected, and that raises new security, business, and technical questions for manufacturers, network providers, marketers, and consumers– the IoT ecosystem. What a few days scrambling around Las Vegas got me thinking.   More

The Internet of CES Things

CES was a gigantic, if predictable, letdown when it comes to "consumer electronics." Everything seemed incremental. People ask each other "What's the most interesting thing you've seen?" My answer was an announcement not a device--Amazon's deal with Ford to put its Echo "Alexa" technology inside of cars. It was the Internet of Things that loomed large in the background--not to make connected toasters but to transform society with connected efficiency.   More

Techonomy’s Top Articles for 2015

At Techonomy we put on conferences and publish articles and videos. Our most popular articles this year tackled the conceptual problem with the Apple Watch, the Human side of the Internet of Things, how consumer genomics empowers consumers, tech and artificial intelligence progress in Ethiopia, and the need for the biotech industry to step up its game in communicating to the general public. It's a good flavor of the range of issues and topics that fascinate and motivate us. Keep with us in 2016 for much much more!   More

How Good Guys Can Win the Cyberwars

When it comes to the cyberwars, are good guys or bad guys winning? I moderated a panel at Techonomy 2015 that explored this question. The answer isn’t a simple yes or no – and in light of the recent events in Paris, the question of our security feels even more critical. The industrialization of cybercrime is upon us. Today’s criminals are networked and well equipped. All organizations must prepare themselves for a series of battles.   More
