IoT-based “Regulation 3.0” Might Have Avoided Merrimack Valley Tragedies

Pardon me: this is a very personal post.
For about an hour Thursday night we didn’t know whether my son’s home in Lawrence was one of those blown up by the gasline explosions (fortunately, he and his dear family were never at risk — they’re living in Bolivia for two years — but the house was right […]

Previewing “The Future Is Smart”: Siemens Leads Way In IoT Transformation

Huzzah!
On August 7th, HarperCollins’ new Leadership imprint (formerly Amacom) will publish The Future Is Smart, my guide to IoT strategy for businesses and the general public.  BTW: write me if you’d like to arrange a speaking engagement/book signing event!
As part of the build-up to the release, here’s another excerpt from the book, drawn from Chapter […]

I have seen the future, and it’s written in Chalk (PTC’s Vuforia Chalk, that is!)

I just had to take time out from my live blogging of PTC’s LiveWorx ’18 to focus on one of the topics Jim Heppelmann mentioned in passing in his keynote: the new variation on the company’s Vuforia AR app: Chalk.
Significant in its own right, I suspect Chalk will have an additional, critical impact: democratizing AR.
It […]

Apple Watch 85% Accuracy in Detecting Diabetes May Be Precursor of Early Diagnoses

Permit me to (re-)introduce myself, LOL.
I haven’t posted since the end of October, because I was totally absorbed in writing The Future is Smart, my book about IoT strategy, which will be released in August by AMACOM, the publishing wing of the American Management Association. A major theme of the book is that the IoT […]

Liveblogging from Internet of Things Global Summit

Critical Infrastructure and IoT
Robert Metzger, Shareholder, Rogers Joseph O’Donnell 

a variety of constraints to direct government involvement in IoT
regulators: doesn’t trust private sector to do enough, but regulation tends to be prescriptive.
NIST can play critical role: standards and best practices, esp. on privacy and security.
Comparatively, any company knows more about potential and liabilities of IoT than […]

OtoSense: the next level in sound-based IoT

It sounds (pardon the pun) as if the IoT may really be taking off as an important diagnostic repair tool.
I wrote a while ago about the Auguscope, which represents a great way to begin an incremental approach to the IoT because it’s a hand-held device to monitor equipment’s sounds and diagnose possible problems based on abnormalities.
Now NPR […]

IoT: LiveBlogging PTC’s LiveWorx

Got here a little late for CEO Jim Heppelman’s keynote, so here goes!

Vuforia: digital twin gives you everything needed for merging digital “decorations” on the physical object
Unique perspective: AR takes digital back to the physical. Can understand & make better decisions.
Virtual reality would allow much of the same. Add in 3-D printing, etc.
“IoT is PLM.” Says […]

ThingWorx Analytics Video: microcosm of why IoT is so transformative!

I’ll speak at PTC’s LiveWorx lollapalooza later this month (ooh: act quickly and I can get you a $300 registration discount: use code EDUCATE300) on my IoT-based Circular Company meme, so I’ve been devouring everything I can about ThingWorx to prepare.

Came across a nifty 6:09 vid about one component of ThingWorx, its Analytics feature. It seems […]

In a way, this is an update of the e-book I wrote for […]
