When things get smarter, how do humans and things cooperate?

In the following years we will see an entirely new Internet emerging, as the Internet unleashes itself from the creators’ intentions and develops in transformative ways. Humans are shaping the future of this new human Internet.

IoP = IoT + the ’WOW’ factor, The Human

How will smart things change our private life, social life, experience and workflow of the job we do in the real world?

We are at the forefront of autonomous devices. Nowadays there are many “halfway house” IoT applications, which use humans for one or more parts of the entire system. Is it possible to create a mathematical model of “humanity”? Can we provide a model with enough data so it creates an algorithm that can reliably predict our decisions? What are the ethical and privacy implications?

The digital you is becoming more and more important. Organisations study your behaviour to make better decisions about you, based on better predictions on how you will behave. We can’t stop our data from flowing into predictive models. But where do we draw the line between the evolution of technology and privacy?

On December 15, 2016, The Internet of People Event will answer these questions, aiming to help you think systematically about the future from the human perspective, in other words the SMART SOCIETY,  while embracing the new technologies that combine to produce new capacities for productivity, connectivity and communication.

Don’t miss our debate about the way our increasingly digitized society develops to ensure it provides the maximum benefits for people, businesses and society.
