Connected Intelligence Era: Golden Age of Mobile
By the end of 2014, there will be approximately two times the connected devices as there are humans on the planet. With a steady flow of sensors, gadgets, and tools, we can expect this number to keep climbing for the next few decades. The world that Mark Weiser envisioned back in 1991 is indeed coming true. The ubiquity of wireless network means that the benefits of mobility are become more pervasive than ever. We clearly need to keep working as an industry to get this basic tool in the hands of as many people as possible. However, we are clearly laying the foundations of the next technology evolution cycle that will have impact on the global economy even more than what the phones, smartphones, and tablets have had on how we work and play, how economic activity takes place, and how the global pulse ticks.
