A compelling argument that the Internet of things threatens human rights and security and that suggests policy prescriptions to protect our future The Internet has leapt from human-facing display screens into the material objects all around us. In this so-called Internet of Things-connecting everything from cars to cardiac monitors to home appliances-there is no longer a meaningful distinction between physical and virtual worlds. Everything is connected. The social and economic benefits are tremendous, but there is a downside: an outage in cyberspace can result not only in a loss of communication but also potentially a loss of life. Control of this infrastructure has become a proxy for political power, since countries can easily reach across borders to disrupt real-world systems. Laura DeNardis argues that this diffusion of the Internet into the physical world radically escalates governance concerns around privacy, discrimination, human safety, democracy, and national security, and she offers new cyber-policy solutions. In her discussion, she makes visible the sinews of power already embedded in our technology and explores how hidden technical governance arrangements will become the constitution of our future.

We can also use sensor data to better predict the failures of our machines and materials in different temperature scenarios, or in higher winds using digital twins. In the broadest sense, the term IoT encompasses everything connected to the internet, but it is increasingly being used to define objects that "talk" to each other. One of the most common buzzwords in technology circles right now is "Internet of Things" (IoT). People are talking about it all over the place, from the newspaper to tech blogs — but what, exactly, is the IoT? Well, in laymen terms, it refers to connected devices that can transfer data over a network without requiring any human input. The Internet Book, Fifth Edition explains how computers communicate, what the Internet is, how the Internet works, and what services the Internet offers.

Simply put, the Internet of Things involves the interconnectivity of physical objects and data input and output, while the Internet of Everything is a comprehensive term that refers to the interconnectivity of various technologies, processes and people. What is the Internet of Everything (IoE)? The Internet of Everything describes the networked connections between devices, people, processes and data. By 2020, the IoE has the potential to connect 50 billion people, devices and things. In less than a decade, everything could be connected to the Internet of Things.
