Re: Consumer
..and as I work away, I wanted to note this I just picked up from the Washington Post that underscores the extend of the possiblities--fun to be witness to such transformation--isn't it?:
Future medical breakthroughs may come from an unexpected industry
The tech sector's big investments and bold ambitions will lead to medical advances in the years to come.

Re: The case for health, as the question is phrased
I would briefly "add" to this wonderful discourse by noting:  It is a good challenge to overcome because in the end everyone wins.     I was also thinking about this very thing as I caught Vice President's Talk on his Cancer Moonshot as well earlier today.   The possibilities are limitless--aren't they?

Re: unintended consequences
@Michelle, @JohnBarnes, you both of so right. That will be scary!

Consumer

@mpouraryan, I voted for consumer also. I think the consumer is key in measuring the impact of IoT's.

Re: unintended consequences
@John excellent. There will be no shortage of material to read on the coming of the killer kitchen appliances. Our new dystopian future will be flush with power outlets, I suppose.

Re: unintended consequences
Michelle , It is in fact a much-discussed idea in sci fi writer private forums right now. You're shortly going to be tired of it!

@John When do you start work on the manuscript for that eventual future? The story could be scary like Christine, but with a lot more moving metal...

The case for health, as the question is phrased
If we're asking about impact on service providers, I suspect the actual impact is going to be bandwidth, data storage, access, and required speed, in some combination. And because of that I voted for health.  We're very close to being able to do non-invasive whole-body monitoring of hundreds of variables at once, and  the rapidly developing Big Data-Machine Learning fusion will make it possible to process that data soon enough and well enough to make it a major tool for physicians in routine care. Supplying the bandwidth and info storage that will take, and the ability to move that information on and off the sensing network and the computing network (Probably all through the cloud ...) that is going to be one major monster of a demand on the service providers.

Re: unintended consequences
Michelle,

I'm with afwriter on this one. I think the first widely publicized IoT physical attack on a person -- somebody finding a way to make the microwave, the central heating system, or the car attack an ex-wife or a disliked politician -- will probably change everything forever.

unintended consequences
I think we're beginning to see the real-world capabilities of unsecured IoT devices. I think security should become a much bigger part of device development than what it has been.
