The Internet of Things Council
The Internet of Things Council is a think tank, consultancy, accelerator and forecasting group comprising a loose group of professionals with different ideas, opinions, experiences and approaches to the development of IoT. Aimed at collaborative learning, innovation and understanding of the full logistical, business, social and philosophical implications of the Internet of Things, the Council caters to positions that see IoT as manageable – which means the development of scenarios and policies for privacy, security, education and adoption. The Council also caters to those who see the promise of IoT in enabling balance, agency and participative engagement of end-users versus industry and governments through new formats of decision-making and balancing M2M with human agency. Through these approaches, the Council believes that the "winning solution" to creating the most open, inclusive and innovative Internet of Things is to transcend short-term oppositions between social innovation and security by finding ways to combine and reconcile competing necessities into broader and common perspectives.
