Re: Interesting (A Brief Thought)
@mpouraryan, good info - as always.

Musk always has provocative thoughts.  I believe that is for two reasons - he has worked significantly in two key fields - automobiles and space - and has applied the technology in new and innovative models.  I believe, however, that his sole focus on technology being the solution to everything is somewhat skewed and probably reflects the understandable proprietary interests.

He truly is an innovator and has accomplished a great deal.  But I believe his forecasts do not reflect the reality of society's adoption at the same level of acceptance of technology that he has.  It is a purely technology solution which I do not believe will ever be the reality.

Re: Interesting
@elizabethv - good insights.  Great example of the strengths and weaknesses of pure competition - the older busines models.  Due to increased market changes, Moore's Law, etc., you see more co-optition and collaboration - even among competitors.  I believe that is the growing realization that we are competitive in our own spheres, but share resources and common interests on larger issues.  Thus the new models of ecosystems, open platforms, etc., that link and unify those interests.

Maybe progress?

Standards...
> "I remain skeptical [that IoT will get a standard] anytime soon."

Yup. This is right on the nose. It will take at least a decade (or maybe never?) for IoT to get any standards. It took about a decade for Android/iOS to take over the smartphone market, and that's just "one" kind of device. An IoT network of devices (plural) is going to have a much tougher time getting any stable standards. Maybe IoT will fall on Android and iOS standards? But... maybe not.

Re: Standards...
To that I say standards, smandards! Who needs 'em!? Mobile devices have suffered a sort of standards problem with device fragmentation. I'm endlessly curious about the future of other connected devices in this context...

Re: Interesting (A Brief Thought)
Thank you @DHagar for your thoughts--we have to push our boundaries ever more.  If that was not the case, Edison would not have discovered electricity, The Wright Brothers would not have flown the first plane and Jobs et. al would not have been at the forefront of where we are today.    Musk, Bezos et. al are at the forefront of change--and they will fail more than they will succeed--I have underscored how we have to control it--but that requires a sense of balance which we have to strive for as we are witness to such change:

Tesla Tests Self-Driving Functions With Secret Updates to Its Customers' Cars


tesla tests self driving functions

What it is: Over the last 18 months, Tesla's amassed 780 million miles of Model X and S autonomous driving data, and every 10 hours, it gets another million miles' worth. That's largely due to Tesla's over-the-air updates: engineers can pull high-res data from vehicles and remotely install inert autonomous software so that, as MIT Technology Review writes, "[the software] can react to real road and traffic conditions, without controlling the vehicle."

Why it's important: Because of this capability to digitally perform software updates to customers' cars -- and test new self-driving features without affecting how the vehicle operates -- Tesla now gathers more Autopilot data in a single day than Google's autonomous driving program has gathered since 2009. Every day, Tesla's fleet of data-gathering vehicles grows, and drivers are already experiencing the benefits of this test data

 

Wishing you all a fab, joyous and restful W-End 

:)

Re: Interesting (A Brief Thought)
@mpouraryan, great thoughts.  Indeed, we can't learn new unless we begin to test what we know - the value of research and development.  The one key becomes the stages of development and where the "middle" is.  The adoption of technology falls somewhere between the advanced and the laggards.  The one thing that I think may be different in IoT is its potential consumer focus (ie beyond smart phones to sensors and uses in smart cities, fitbits, smart homes, etc.).

Thanks - you have a great weekend as well.

Re: Standards...
@mhhf1ve, along with your "healthy" skepticism, here are some additional thoughts.  Will the standards be in the device, the network, or the data?  Maybe the standards will be developed on a platform that uses the data for multiple purposes?

Re: Standards...
@Michelle, interesting thoughts!  I believe that you have a point on the standards better aligning the networks - that is where there is more of a need.

Re: Interesting (A Brief Thought)
I would humbly suggest @Dhagar that the era is already here--what Amy Webb deemed the "internet of X":

Appreciate the thoughts--hope you all have a cool one--we're up in the 80's here in So. Cal!! :)

Re: Interesting (A Brief Thought)

@mpouraryan, I agree with you about the era "of possibilities".  Clearly the technology is here and the advanced users are already creating new models, services, and leading the field.  I was referring to the widespread adoption about the "masses" - that will include the laggards. 

We are making great advancements truly - but not everyone is "in sync" with this thinking or onboard with the great visions and understanding of Telco Transformation community.  I believe the transformations are coming soon, though!
