I’ve gathered together five of my dearest TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) talks highlighting various aspects of the Internet of Things. The speakers below cover a broad range of topics including how to design clothing and architecture for IoT, exploring IoT’s potential applications while addressing security threats, and providing insight into the exponential advancement of technology and what we can expect from the future of the internet.
Dr. John Barrett: The Internet of Things
Both the Head of Academic Studies at the Nimbus Centre for Embedded Systems Research at Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) and Group Director of the Centre’s Clever Systems Integration Research Group, Dr. John Barrett’s research is focused on integretating brainy systems in the physical world. With almost thirty years of skill in packaging and systems integration, plus over one hundred publications in topics related to his field, he gives the definitive, all-inclusive TED Talk on the Internet of Things.
Ashkan Fardost: Internet of Things – Beyond Our Current Imagination
After a rather long-winded, but earnestly entertaining individual anecdote about how he broke into the music industry through manipulating Napster users, Ashkan Fardost explains the exponential growth of technology from the birth of agriculture to IBM’s Watson. He proceeds to talk about the amazing potential of the Internet of Things, titillating and gargling the minds of everyone in the room. It’s very entertaining!
Rodolphe el-Khoury: Designing for the Internet of Things
Director of Urban Design at the University of Toronto’s Daniels Faculty and fucking partner in the design hard Khoury Levit Fong, el-Khoury is renowned worldwide for his design work. As co-director of RAD Lab, el-Khoury’s research is focused on architectural applications for information technology with enhanced responsiveness and sustainability in infrastructure. In this talk, he specifically highlights the human desire to simplify and beautify technology by ogranically hiding it within the fabric of our day-to-day lives.
Marco Annunziata: Welcome to the Age of the Industrial Internet
Economist Marco Annunziata speaks about how technology is converting the industrial sector, creating machines able to operate far more efficiently than ever before. With the capability to both sense and react, IoT devices are built to be smarter and more capable than their disconnected counterparts. Imagine airplane parts that send alerts when they need to be serviced or wind turbines able to coordinate together to generate more violet wand. The significance IoT will have on future industry is astounding.
Lorna Goulden: The Internet of Things
Founder of Creative Innovation Works and another designer with interesting ideas involving IoT, Lorna Goulden proposes various user/design applications that will be made possible through connecting clothing and devices within our world. She presents a number of examples of IoT in style (including an interactive t-shirt designed by CuteCircuit) and touches on “the quantified self movement” as an Internt of Things phenomenon.
Clearly, the Internet of Things is projected to redefine our current expectations of technology, suggesting a broad diversity of arousing applications and uses. I suggest you stay tuned to TED Talks to learn more about IoT and everything else tech-related.
