Gerd Leonhard & Peter Vander Auwera: Chapter 5: how to humanise the IoT (Internet of Things)

By Futurist Gerd Leonhard

In this podcast, Gerd and Petervan are talking through Chapter 5 of Gerd Leonhard's book Technology vs Humanity, entitled " the Internet of Inhuman things?". This week Gerd and Peter covered topics like responsible ecosystems and supply chains, and planning for externalities and unintended consequences. They also discussed what kind of governance will be needed to actually implement ethical principles: this will most probably require a public not-for-profit organization with a co-operative structure. As soon as any object becomes connective and cognitive, it becomes smart. This type of smartness needs to be governed and regulated as it operates at the level of a new meta-intelligence.
