M2M: Mmm, Connectivity Never Tasted So Good
March 6, 2013
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
M2M. Machines connected and talking to each other. By 2018, nearly everyone, everything, everywhere will be connected real time, affecting how we innovate, collaborate, produce, govern, and achieve sustainability. Think about coffee plants telling farmers how and when to irrigate, harvest, pack, tag, ship. Mmm. Miguel Blockstrand, Ericcson: “Unleashing the power of connectivity to all people places and things is inevitable.” Steve Hilton, Analysys Mason: “M2M is a jumble of technology thrown together like potatoes dumped in a bowl. But something very tasty is created by mashing the potatoes together with butter, milk, and salt. Or as Aristotle said almost 2400 years ago, ‘In the case of all things which have several parts and in which...the whole is something beside the parts, there is a cause.’” - Metaphysics, Book VIII, Part 6 Benjamin Wesson, SAP: “I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that.” - 2001: A Space Odyssey.
