Trajectory from Smart Technologies to IoT Ecosystem and on to Smart Living Something few people have grasped yet is that to get from Smart Technologies to IoT and on to Smart Living (Ubiquity) is a progression, not just in sensors, networks and device thinking, but also in ecosystem and task appraisal (to discern if they are even relevant not just the form of them) thinking. As with every other revolution not only does time and people change the meaning of the revolution they also change the trajectory. At the Global 5G Test Summit at MWC17 in Barcelona the panel was asked what services will 5G bring, extendRead More →

Pervasive UX #pUX an evolutionary UX that enables (#ubiquitous) #Open #IoT #Ecosystems through Human Centered Design #HCD Talk Proposal: This talk is about the need for UX to dig deeper into its core capabilities to facilitate Smart Living and true Ubiquity in the form of Open IoT Ecosystems. While for many recent joiners to the UX profession Open IoT Ecosystems are a daunting proposition, to those with both understanding and experience of the evolution of UX they are an opportunity to return to core values and the eminence of our profession. UX and CX are the same thing, UX created CX as there was a driftRead More →

Lets not building Smart Cities, lets Live Smart instead Just as humanity is starting to deal with business processes that should never have been digitized we might also consider the huge waste in making Smart Cities when we no longer need cities. Watching humanity evolve in retrospect it is easy to spot the errors and poor judgement, but humanity is on the cusp of a revolution so profound it calls into question the structure of our societies. Why do we need Cities? Think for a moment, why do we need cities? They create centralization of people and resources however they also drive costs as often spaceRead More →

#Situational #Awareness #Shopping Consider, currently we see things we want to buy through advertising or by seeing it in films or when around other people or places. Why not; while having a coffee with a friend in their house you see a nice bowl and you say ‘buy bowl’. Your personal IoT ecosystem checks the area and finds three bowls, it asks ‘white bowl’ you say ‘Yes’ the bowl is ordered based upon your personal preference which could be Speed, Price, Colour or anything else, for this scenario it’s Speed it locates the nearest supplier and orders it for immediate delivery. You carry on chatting andRead More →

What is a Key Opinion Leader? The concept of KOL’s has been around in the pharmaceutical industry for a while and Elihu Katz in answers the question, “Who is an opinion leader?” One or more of these factors make noteworthy opinion leaders: expression of values professional competence nature of their social network Opinion leaders are individuals who obtain more media coverage than others and are especially educated on a certain issue. In the jargon of public relations, they are called thought leaders. So who are these people that can have such impact? I have peoples Twitter names below, the person responsible is @FacingChina for thisRead More →

I’m writing this from the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona as a guest of Huawei. I don’t do advertising in my writing or public speaking I provide useful and insightful information in the hope that my readers can make use of it. That aside I have discovered something astonishing about Huawei that I think people should be aware of. Huawei’s Watch 2 has made the leap to independent device and signals the death of smartphones When I first saw the specification of the Apple iWatch, I though “what a stupid idea”, “it is just an extension of the iPhone” but having bought one I have foundRead More →

Open Networking Ecosystem Protocol Patent

While everyone else has been focused on selling the dream of ubiquity Paradigm Interactions Inc. has been working on a protocol to make it a reality. In essence the protocol is about; A method of defining an organic or inorganic items right to access local networks, be found, used and to record its lifecycle to a distributed linear data system. The talk below discusses the bases of a US Patent for an Open Networking Ecosystem Protocol conceived by Karl Smith and patented by Paradigm Interactions in 2016.

Introduction The IoT is a much marketed term as the future of all things; the IoT is interconnected landscape of life experiences and transactions What is the IoT, how is it intended to work and how does that relate to how it currently works. What are the real business opportunities and how will they be measured as a success? How can your business gain an advantage or benefit? Finally, are there any risks associated with the IoT, either foreseen or not and how might they be mitigated? What is the IoT and where does it come from? The IoT is problematic as a description for UbiquityRead More →

The foundation for this thinking goes back to a notion of the ‘social life of things’. If things themselves exist and have a number of trajectories and states then those things also potentially have accessible and useful human touch points in the IoT. Much of the interactions we humans have become used to are in fact simple touch-points to hidden and complex interactions within dispersed and non-interlinked (at the core) technology systems. This simplification process of creating a directed visual presentation layer enables us to maintain a simplified mental model around our interactions. However in IoT technologies the additional integration of voice, touch and thoughtRead More →

It should be clear by now to observers of how businesses who are being successful are changing. For them IoT is not just another name for Technology or a Delivery Channel but it is a Pervasive Customer Engagement Productization. As Technologies come and go, Customers are eternal What is an IoT Product? An IoT Product is not the envelope, like a website, app or another container, but the thing that is purchased, transferred or acquired. An IoT Product is pervasive (accessible anywhere on any device, platform and mental model) and modular, designed to be portable, while maintaining all the associated complex information, languages and cultural context,Read More →

Information Systems

Products and services associated with the IoT currently operate in closed ecosystems like Home Automation, in effect, they are simply networked products with linking software. Part machine to machine (M2M) and part human to machine or machine to human (H2M setup and observation and M2H alerts). The IoT is an open ecosystem, made up of billions of product, services and people ecosystems. While many people will associate an ontology with a website, software or information system, the key factor in IoT products or services is; Information uniqueness Information parity Information exchange policies IoT products and services also require Governance frameworks Security frameworks Privacy/data storage frameworksRead More →

Ubiquity (IoT) does not exist yet There will be many people who will say it does exist and has working technologies, hardware and software. The IoT is not a closed ecosystem related to one task or feature set like Home Management, but an open ecosystem It’s very interesting to watch so much activity around selling the dream of the IoT when it does not exist yet. There are closed networks for battlefield CnC, managing device servicing and even consumer home automation. But these are all still structured around closed networks and don’t deliver the power or prosperity associated with the IoT. It would be better for businessesRead More →

Data, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence Clients don’t understand their customers, they just think they do! It’s not for the lack of trying or spending millions on developing and building huge data systems, the problems are many but can be traced back to one simple thing; “Data only describes part of the what is happening and almost nothing of the why, let alone what should be done to change the situation” Clients have been sold that data gives them the answers and that big data will close the loop for them to understand the upstream and downstream thinking of their customers, WRONG. Douglas Adams noticed the realRead More →

Thank you to everyone who attended our (Karl Smith and Thom Heslop) talk at SXSW, it’s the start of a long road into a really complex and contextual problem. But being silent in the crowd as the King walks by with no clothes on is not an option, peoples lives, futures and prosperity is at risk, not to mention the risk of multi-trillion dollar lawsuits that can follow by knowingly distracting people who are engaged in critical tasks. The IoT – Internet of Things (Ubiquity) is the next great opportunity for commerce to engage with business enterprises and customers. However, there is no unified approachRead More →

Cognition Clash in the IoT

I’m speaking at SXSW Interactive 2016 on Cognition Clash in The Internet of Things, if your in Austin, TX let me know? The IoT is the next great opportunity for business enterprises to engage with customers. However there is no unified approach to the mental load between context of use, physical interaction, mental interaction and digital interaction. This cognitive landscape is inhabited by associated experiences that gel human behavior and machine interfaces through, touch, mouse and keyboard. The usage of sight, voice and thought create new complexities and risks which have until recently been the subject of defense technologies, where clear outcomes and prescribed mental modelsRead More →
