Retweeted by Tim O'Reilly@atduskgreg Yes, I totally agree with your thoughts about camera + computer vision substituting for a lot of other sensors. #IoTChat@atduskgreg Agree.Politics and the Digital world: I recommend reading @timoreilly thoughts on #codered from last month. http://t.co/GSGE35Fo29

Signing off now.A6. Let's hope that IoT will not be won by startups *or* big players. Let's hope it will be won by us! They're our things. #IoTChat
Retweeted by Tim O'ReillyHey #IoTChat tweeple, here is another free resource regarding #IoT http://t.co/V8n3VCkIzD
Retweeted by Tim O'ReillyA10: Possibilities are endless but we've got a long way to go. I don't even get notified about my test results via email yet #IoTChat
Retweeted by Tim O'ReillyA10 I love what @jfgm is doing with Maker Nurses http://t.co/uX7DRwVr2a as a way to explore #IoT/#DIY in healthcare #IoTchatA10. One risk to #IoT in healthcare is hospitals extorting too much $$ for new devices. See http://t.co/w8BrNuxwQk #IoTchatA9 I totally agree with @infobright that the role of data skills in #IoT can't be underestimated. @strataconf meets @OReillySolid #IoTchatA9 Obviously, we need lots of tech expertise, but the biggest drivers of IoT success will be design and business imagination #IoTchatA7 We will see success with both approaches. But one important platform lesson to remember. Every platform needs a killer app #IoTchatA8 That's why, even though Uber isn't really thought of as #IoT, it is a prototype for how sensors allow us to rethink real world #IoTchatA8 We need to think about the design not of devices but of workflows and systems of interaction #IoTchatA6 E.g. with Precision Planting, Monsanto is in some ways competing with John Deere. So think cross-industry competition #IoTchatA6 And also don't imagine just startups competing with big cos. Imagine cross-sector big co competition #IoTchatA6 If you really want to understand the #IoT opportunity space, don't just think consumer. #IoTchatA6. Both. The oppt space is so large it will touch every facet of life. If you or your company use things, you will be impacted. #IoTChat
Retweeted by Tim O'ReillyA6 @jaredwolff Actually, Sony, the canonical Innovator's Dilemma company, was not a startup when it introduced the transistor radio #IoTchatA5 ctd: Check out "physical world as a service": analogue to SaaS in many ways http://t.co/sgb6fte8yD #IoTChat
Retweeted by Tim O'ReillyA6 Both will win. There will be some huge #IoT startups (Nest only the first) but many of them will be acquired by big cos #IoTchatQ5: Agribusiness and scientific laboratories both crying out for open interfaces, both very thing intensive, lots of smart users. #IoTChat
Retweeted by Tim O'ReillyI'm not sure I buy that, @atduskgreg. Precision planting + Climate Corp has huge impact on agriculture. Too much consumer thinking #IoTchatA5 Some interesting #IoT sectoral companies: Precision Planting http://t.co/Lbshy4P8gb Now part of Monsanto along with Climate Corp #IoTchatA5 That being said, I think every industry sector is about to be transformed. Agriculture, transportation, logistics, storage #IoTChatA5 I think the #IoT opportunities in healthcare are enormous. Home and outpatient especially #IoTChatA4 All the usual, magnified. And magnified in lots of ways. Drone strikes on people identified by phone or camera #IoTchatA3. The car could call a cab if it decides I've had too much to drink. Not that that's ever happened. :D #IoTChat
Retweeted by Tim O'Reilly@jonjohns65 Yes indeed! It's already here. #IoTchatA2: I already control the lights with my phone, but I'd really like them to operate autonomously--next step from phone control #IoTChat
Retweeted by Tim O'ReillyA2: Also, I'd just like a home "ghost." A bunch of noises and light switches that go random if intruder detected. Scary. #IoTChat
Retweeted by Tim O'ReillyA3 what it is hearing from other cars already on the road. Remember "software above the level of a single device" a key IoT pattern #IoTchatA3. I'm not sure that it's your car that will be talking. It is, once again, your phone that is telling you to go early, based on #IoTchatA2 @Infobright Well, Nest figures out by itself that you are away and turns down the heat. I imagine they will do lights eventually #IoTChatA2 @audraORM The Tesla already does that. Or you can turn on the AC before you go back to your car. Maybe other cars do that too #IoTChatA1 @alexislloyd is monitoring them with a phone, is that IoT? This is one of the core design patterns #IoTChatA1 @alexislloyd But if you think that way, you will exclude a lot. If a patient is wearing sensors, and the healthcare worker… #IoTChatA2 @SoniaZatOReilly A lot of the newer washing machines and dishwashers already have that. Not phone controllable yet, though.A1. @AKAMEDIASYSTEM @JonBruner Yes, totally. Remember "the Internet" in "the Internet of Things." Don't focus on the things. #IoTchatQ2 …is @ubiome for my toilet :-) #IoTchatQ2 I love being able to warm up my home before I get home using my Nest app and connected thermostat, but what I'd really love… #IoTchatA1 The biggest IoT opportunity may not be new devices so much as realizing the potential of the ones we get to build new services #IoTChatEg @uber could be seen as what @ericries calls a "concierge minimum viable product" for a future IoT service with self-driving cars #IoTChatThink about it: the phone has a rich, complex sensor package, and even an actuator (a human on the other end). #IoTChatMy favorite Internet of Things device is my phone! It's easy to take for granted, but it is the most general platform for now. #IoTChat
