The Internet of Things Is the Internet of Everything

Tyler Back is the principal director at Mitosis, an international award-winning digital experience company, as well as co-founder and acting CEO of Meiosis, a data-agnostic software-as-a-service marketing automation company determined to transform marketing technology and analytics. In this Ted talk, Back explains the Internet of Things (IoT) as the internet of everything.

The IoT is changing the way we live our everyday lives. The internet-powered world we live in is rapidly evolving, adding complication to our lives, thus making the need to simplify even stronger. This talk presents a new concept around the Internet of Everything; addressing the app ecosystem and living in a connected world where we need to find ways to simplify and enhance the human experience.

Back begins his speech by saying, “When people hear the word ‘technology’ the first thing that comes to their minds is the internet.” Back then goes on to explain that the internet is an unprecedented resource and tool but is beginning to clutter our lives. “Because everything works independently we have to download separate apps for every aspect of our lives” explains Back.

Total integration is the next step for the internet because we’re not really dealing with the internet of things, we are dealing with the internet of everything since everything is connected to the internet. And since everything is already connected to the internet all we have to do is create a procedure in which the things of the internet can speak to one another.

Backends with this thought, “Imagine a world where you no longer have to use your fitness app for fitness, your thermostat app for temperature control, you car app to turn on your car. Instead, imagine one central unified… allowing you to easily manage, schedule, and positively impact your life. It is time that we get technology working for us to empower and enhance the human experience not complicate it.”

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
