Today’s internet is based on client devices such as PCs or smartphones talking to centralized servers to get their data. If an EU-funded project called Pursuit takes flight, the future could be a whole lot more distributed.
Ahead of our Mobilize event Oct. 16 and 17, we asked experts how 50 billion connected devices and 6 billion people change their industry. In this essay PARC’s Mike Kuniavsky tackles the topic of programming.
When you add thousands of devices to a network it’s going to be impossible to program in the same way we program computers today. IBM is working on Node-RED a tool to help “wire” the internet of things.
With the sixth year of Mobilize, we decided to shake up the show by focusing on the mobile revolutions that’s happening outside of handsets. We also decided to ditch the Launchpad in exchange for a hardware product showcase.
Stop thinking about a command and control user interface for the internet of things. Instead Mike Kuniavsky of PARC explains how programming for the internet of things should be more probabilistic.
The long-promised Nebula One cloud system — with its controller appliance — is now available. That piece of hardware could distinguish Nebula from the rest of the OpenStack cloud crowd.
Avatar isn’t just a James Cameron movie, it’s aslo a key component in Mike Kuniavsky vision of the internet of things. To find out more, check out our video.
The internet of things will change the world, but first we have to decide what it is. Last night at a GigaOM meetup several industry speakers made a start.
The internet of things is hot, and the more people get together to share ideas, the better the end result for the ecosystem. So we’re hosting a meetup in our San Francisco offices on Feb. 26.
Web-enabling all manner of non-computery things — parking meters, pill bottles, umbrellas — means that people can be reminded to do something: feed the meter, take the meds, grab the bumbershoot. But designing the alerts — in addition to the devices themselves — is a key consideration.
