The Internet of People Event took place on December 15, 2016, in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
It was a niche and innovative event, where the attendees were able to join in the discussions around the main topic – the social, human-sided approach of the internet of things.
In the morning, Valerie Frissen from SIDNfonds talked about how an internet of people is more than an internet of living things, while Julian Ranger from digi.me tackled on solving today’s personal data issues. Maarten Louman, Qiy Foundation, challenged the audience to imagine that they would design the internet today, while Leo de Penning from Illuminoo explained how Reflective Intelligence allows humans and machines to learn and develop together.
After lunch, Remco Magielse, Philips Lighting, revealed how smart lighting technologies open up a complete new space for people to interweave lighting in their daily rituals. Attendees were also able to find out how physical learning can be connected with the digital world by the help of Solly, the sun-eating robot.
The afternoon program ended with a session on “Taking internet projects and ideas to the next level” powered by SIDN Fund. Gripping insights into creating happier machine intelligence, changing open source healthcare with wearables, designing IoT products responsibly were provided, among many other interesting approaches.
