1) IoT In Cinema — IoT, Movies, and Lessons Learned From Fiction

Movies often explore how fictional technology might be used and especially how we might manage to muck it up. While often only used to further the plot, technology shown in films can help us learn real-world lessons about developing for the Internet of Things. Let’s explore some of IoT examples in cinema and see if we can’t shake out fact from fiction.

Full disclosure: spoilers ahead…

5) Data — The Modern World’s Most Precious Resource

The Economist ran a story last week “The world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data,” calling for new regulatory measures for the Internet giants. While it’s true that Google, Facebook, and Amazon control most of the Internet’s data, ride-sharing companies such as Uber and Lyft also yield tremendous power as we anticipate the advent of self-driving cars. News this week from Didi and Uber perfectly illustrates why folk at The Economist were so concerned…
