Shaping the Future of Technology Governance: IoT, Robotics and Smart Cities

As the internet of things blurs lines between the physical and digital world, how should individuals, organizations and governments navigate and design this brave new world of connected devices?

There are more connected devices in the world today than humans. These devices, commonly known as the internet of things (IoT), come in infinite forms, from smart building technologies, which monitor and manage energy usage, to connected vehicles, which help anticipate and avoid potential collisions. By 2020, the number of IoT devices is projected to exceed 20 billion, fuelled by continued technological advances and the plummeting costs of computing, storage and connectivity.

As IoT technologies continue to spread to all aspects of day-to-day life, and even become embedded in the human body, questions about data ownership, accuracy and privacy protection take on greater importance. Similarly, in an interconnected world where electric grids, public infrastructure, vehicles, homes and workplaces are capable of being accessed and controlled remotely, the vulnerability to cyberattacks and the potential for these security breaches to cause serious harm are unprecedented.

Our platform is shaping how connected devices transform our industries, communities and daily lives.
