I have observed that there are relatively few places you can get a layman’s explanation of the Internet of Things. Is it because this emerging role of the Internet is more interesting to ‘things’ than people? No way. Things may very well take the spotlight in a fully networked world, but people reap all the benefits. It is the job of businesses looking to leverage emerging technologies to learn more about the Internet of things and its potential effects on organizations, consumers, and society.
The below two videos highlight the Internet of Things and explain the relevance to our society and the IT community.
The first video features yours truly, and is a layman’s approach to making sense of the Internet of Things, its genesis, phases, and its possibilities.
The second video from 2010 is a more sophisticated production that explores the evolution of the Internet of Things and its meaning in our world.
