Will GIS Matter in the Internet of Things?
The World Economic Forum contends that we are in the midst of a Fourth Industrial Revolution. The revolution is characterized by “a ubiquitous and mobile internet, by smaller, cheaper, and more powerful sensors, and by artificial intelligence and machine learning.” It is manifest in an “Internet of Things” that’s expected to connect 50 billion devices, and to attract $30 trillion of spending, by 2020. My talk considers implications of this new economic world order for geographic information systems (GIS), and for educational institutions like NC State that prepare students for careers that involve GIS.
