The internet of things | Jordan Duffy | TEDxSouthBank



the internet-of-things who loves the Internet if you didn't put your hand up get out you haven't used Google at work to do your job better than your wrong and and who loves things the chairs you're sitting in the glasses you're wearing the phones you hold pretty much everyone some weird people down here and well the Internet of Things there's a lot to it and I'm going to try and breeze through this in seven minutes but let's jump into it let's jump into what the Internet of Things IOT really is now in a digital world we can make everything talk to each other right we can make our phones talk to each other we can make Facebook talk to each other and in a physical world not so much this is where our lives and technological development is kind of stopped but now we are able to build a network so multiple of physical objects your chair your table your lounge those Tim Tams in the fridge that I connected to the internet if you don't know what the Internet is and you've seen weird people that said no get out and and you allows you to send so you can create and transmit receive so that you can receive and interpret and exchange data exchange data you can have conversations with things around you so IOT will allow multiple physical objects like your Tim Tams to be connected to the internet they can send just how good Tim Tams are to other Tim Tams and to you and they can receive just how many people want those damn Tim Tams and they can have a conversation with the other items in your fridge so we're entering a very exciting time where we will have chairs couches pretty much everything that's in your home connected to the internet or at least to have conversations with things around you now still very ominous right even we have a definition that may or may not have gotten off urban dictionary but let's break it into four sections hardware little bits and pieces like this the hardware is what actually allows us to connect digital items to physical objects so can put this on a door and it will tell me when that door opens this is a dollar by the way a dollar so we have hardware that senses things we have data data actually starts to make sense of what all this is and it's the thing we push around all the time every day that we don't really think about but for example this piece of hardware here creates ECG data it tells me how fast my my heart is beating let's actually check that out right now yeah okay 110 rates and essentially this is also changed over the last 10 years we used to push data around in heavy kind of standardized formats we're seeing a lot of different ways of doing this now we see JSON strings so you interpret that Mikey JSON yeah and and now data is getting leaner we can say more with less okay and data is becoming the universal language not English not Chinese not Auslan but the universal language of things and software what do we do once we have that communication once we have that piece of information the software is what interpreter it's what controls it it's what analyzes it and allows it to do stuff it's Facebook it's your Instagram it's the things that actually take pieces of data from these pieces of hardware and makes it do stuff that is valuable to you and the last step without all of this you know stuff is if it wasn't connected it wouldn't mean anything and connectivity over the last 10 years we've seen go from cellular phones that were the size of bricks through to Wi-Fi into Ethernet to 2g GSM 4G all these different acronyms that are awesome but essentially it's gotten cheaper and it's gotten faster this is an RF transmitter this is a dollar-fifty I can attach this to one of these sensors with this little bit in the middle and I can start beaming information to other things around me with no ongoing cost with electricity cost as much as one cent a month for one of these and I can start to have a conversation in a language that is not English Roslyn but in data and once we handle of these things connected and get it up to the cloud like these things here we can actually start to you and the thing on the top left I call them things because they're on the Internet the thing on the top left is a Bluetooth beacon it's used for marking things these are for dollars I can place this on any object and use this as a proximity marker as well as an identifier I can put this in my fridge so that I know when mom went inside and ate 16 of those Tim Tams and for four dollars I can also put it outside and know when my girlfriend gets home that she got safely through the valley and into my part on the bottom left is an air quality sensor this is on the top end of the costly electronics but that's a $6 sensor that allows me to tell is there ammonia is there carbon dioxide or harmful gases in the environment around me and in the middle a galvanic skin response system this allows me to measure the conductivity in my skin down to the micro level where I can know before my brain does that I'm stressed that I've got adrenaline pumping or that on stage and on the right we have consumer eyes diversions of these up to the ten dollar mark that allow anyone in their home to start building the systems I'm talking about out-of-the-box using software that's readily available and it's all in the wonderful cloud we can do it anywhere we can do it for ultra low cost we don't have to worry about maintaining it and you don't have to be an expert to use it now you may or may not know that this already exists in your home and if it doesn't you should already have it there's systems that allow us to walk up to our front door and not use a key but purely to actually measure is Jordan there has he walked up in a particular way is it him and unlock the door for me I can turn my TV on to Channel seven and The Simpsons just as I get home and I like to in the afternoon I can actually measure how many people are in my room what's the humidity what's the temperature outside and automatically set my air-conditioning I can talk to a unit and turn my Philips hue lights on at the right time to the right color for my mood and if I leave them on when I leave it'll take care of it for me so what does this all mean why that's bigger a big problem right why why does it present so many different opportunities the thing is that now we have gotten to a point where this is such an available and realistic opportunity that it's going to explode and it's only going to happen in ten years who loves their job at the moment however you will like new who thinks that they'll be in the same job for the next five years are you all wrong who thinks I've been the same job for ten years even worse we're entering a stage where everything will be connected and the impact of IOT will be eleven trillion dollars a year by 2025 across factories cities human identification and interaction health care work sites and general safety offices and vehicles and why now because of the ultra-low cost of this Hardware the high availability of resources the low level of difficulty to compile them and put them together in a highly digital and connected universe that is driving us towards not just connecting our digital space in our digital lives but our physical space and the things we actually deal with every day this is a vertical farm the only human interaction needed is placing the seeds into the soil watering trimming harvesting is all taken care of by IOT systems and Barcelona smart city over the last 10 years has made one of the most IIT integrated smart cities in the world by placing sensors that tell people where parking spots are they have increased revenue for parking 250 over 50 million dollars per year they've decreased their energy costs by 37 million dollars a year purely by having IOT in lights to tell them when they actually need to turn on and when people are there to use them they're smart Gardens save them 58 million dollars a year in water usage just by watering in the right places at the right time and now think about your home all of those things I mentioned in your house I already do in mine it's here it's not a futuristic object or an idea it's a reality so as we welcome the whole universe to the next era of connectivity I ask once all of our tasks are automated when the things that we currently do every day and the jobs that half of you love and half of you ain't are actually replaced by IOT devices artificial intelligence and interconnected systems what do we do we come back to creativity innovation and humanity we cannot replace our need to create new things to improve them and to build interpersonal relationships we invent we build we optimize we operate we innovate and we remember to enjoy sometimes before we invent again IOT is the beginning of a new era thank you

    This is all to create a hive mind race of robots. Humans are just the catalyst. This is what happens when Godless, psychopaths create technology that will “help” mankind, but ultimately destroy us. No thank you. I’ll live in the middle of nowhere or in the ground before I let technology take over my freedom to live. Anyone seen Upgraded the movie….that will be our future is we don’t call out these sick people ASAP and tell them NO!

    Why can't post office, hospitals, colleges, libraries, city halls, and traffic posts become public gateways so that we can use them to connect onto the Internet?!!

    Well it seems like iot would be creating a lot of unemployment, especially in overpopulated countries like India and China, where there are already very less job opportunities as compared to their population. Don't know , it's a boon or a curse.

    Dude. This presentation was really bad. To be honest. Your ppt was way too complicated and with too many animation and mistakes. Nothing is clear. I am sorry. But still you are really brave to do a tedX
