How IoT Can Make Your Home and City Smarter
Today, it’s hard to say which ambition came first: smart cities/homes or the Internet of Things (IoT). In short, both suggest a vision of ubiquitous computing, first propelled by Mike Koniavsky. “Ubicomp” is the practice of incorporating information processing and network communication into everyday human environments for better communication and services. The term ‘IoT’ is, instead, attributed to Kevin Ashton, whose desire was to teach computers to ‘sense things’ and communicate them back in the 1990s. This Internet-based connectedness of daily-life objects is the reality of modern tech design and the premise of building a smart home or city that integrates physical, digital and human systems. This article explores how IoT can leverage the smartness of your home or city and considers the delicate repercussions this development has on our lives as users and citizens.
