Some of the topics that we cover in our chat with Maciej Kranz include:

  • History of the term “Internet of Things” (IoT).
  • Considering IoT as “everything connecting to everything”.
  • Why the main role of IoT today is about generating the data that creates business opportunities.
  • Common misconception that IoT is happening primarily in the consumer space.
  • The IoT as a foundation for a true revolution that will include AI, augmented reality and bioengineering.
  • The challenge faced when attempting to create “smart cities” and how we can make smart cities work.
  • Barcelona as an example of a smart city and some of the benefits that have flowed to the people of Barcelona.
  • How IoT can reduce the 2% of GDP worth of wasted resources spent by people stuck in traffic jams or looking for parking.
  • Why known vulnerabilities are the biggest risk to the IoT industry.
  • IoT and the blockchain - both helping to provide a holistic view of the supply chain and providing visibility and trust with respect to the the source of the products that we use.
