The Internet of Things is the next big thing in a long unfolding conversation about the future of technology and all things digital and connected. What is getting connected to this next internet is deeply revealing and offers a set of insights into the future we are collectively building and will one day inhabit.
In this talk, anthropologist and technologist Genevieve Bell explores the Internet of Things, where the things are animals, and what they reveal about this new digital world.
Professor Genevieve Bell is a Professor of Engineering and Computer Science at the Australian National University, where she also holds a research appointment at Data61.
