Last week, I gave a presentation on Making Sense of Internet of Things (IoT) data, here is the slide (see below) I added after the talk. This new slide makes it clear that the sharing is central for IoT to become more than just a collection of useful gadgets. The story goes that one Geiger counter is nice to have, but a collection of them maps radiation fields; kilopixel cameras were certainly nice to have, but 10s Mpixels now provide cameras with information that can be used for other purposes such as health monitoring, MEMS-like information, GPS, radiation detection; one DNA is nice but 10,000 DNAs and now we are talking genomics and/or taking a stab at cancer....More prosaically, if you can predict the future and have seen this video on how fat is excreted from one's body, you know that the weight scaling business will be disrupted by (probably compressive) cheap hyperspectral cameras (probably also using NMF) that can analyze your CO2 output over time. Instead of punitive weighing, data collection on your breathing will provide a continuous flow of information from which one will certainly be able to iterate in real time.
Here is the video in French. The presentation is here.
