About This IoT Knowledge Center and IoT Regulations

This knowledge center of IoT regulations follows closely the evolvement of the Internet of Things ( IoT )  new era from technological, regulatory and legal perspectives. It includes news, reports and analysis of recent developments.

 What is IoT?

By 2020, 50 billion products and devices will transform from still objects to communicating devices, which receive messages and environmental data, transmit the data to remote servers for “Big-Data” analysis, and perform machine to machine transactions with other devices. The emerging reality includes an enormous number of sensors, which will be installed on roads, in offices, in cars, in private homes, in clothes, on wearable devices and even by implantation under the skin.

The Internet of Things  phenomenon, sometimes referred to as the “Internet of Everything”, is expected to have a huge impact on social life, commerce, interpersonal relationships and human rights. It invites innovation and technological development as significant as those brought by the internet in late 20th century and the beginning of the 21st. Yet, the Internet of things  is expected to create major challenges which will require theoretical thinking, public discussion and actual implementation.

The main goal is clear – creating social, economic and legal models to support the development of connected  devices, while deploying proper measures to cope with adverse effects.
