Artificial intelligence (AI), cognition, when things communicate with each other. Whatever you call it, things are getting “smarter”, and the list of things that are connected and communicating with each other is limitless, thus the new world of the Internet of Things (IoT, or as some call it, the Internet of Everything, IoE). Expect IoT to continue at a rapid, exponential rate as advances in new sensing and battery technologies emerge and their costs decrease. Clearly thing-to-thing or animal (human)-to-thing cognition is important, yet the data and information that is gained with each communication will be equally, if not more so, valuable. We truly are at the birth of IoT and future opportunities are boundless. Dr. Lowell Catlett, noted futurist with positive and upbeat predictions, will awaken our awareness to human potential in rapidly changing times and shifting terrain.
