The Internet of Things
Over the past century, we have seen the emergence of a kind of global data field. The planet itself—natural systems, human systems, physical objects—have always generated an enormous amount of data, but until recent decades, we weren't able to hear it, to see it, to capture it. Now we can because all of these things have been instrumented with microchips, UPC codes and other technologies. And they're all interconnected, so now we can actually have access to the data. In effect, the planet has grown a central nervous system and is developing intelligence. It's becoming a much smarter planet. Watch the video:
