New products, Conferences, Books, Papers, Internet of Things

In the last quarter of 2009, a number of significant public speeches were made about Internet of Things in China. It started on August 7, when Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao made a speech in the city of Wuxi calling for the rapid development of Internet of Things technologies. It included this equationInternet + Internet of Things = Wisdom of the Earth. Wen Jiabo followed up with a speech on November 3 at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, in which he encouraged breakthroughs in key technologies for sensor networks and the Internet of Things.

Here’s an excerpt from an interview Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao did with the Xinhua News Agency at the end of December:

“This concept [of Internet of Things] first came to my mind when I talked with a group of young researchers who returned to China after their overseas studies,” Wen said, referring to those he met during his inspection tour to east China’s Jiangsu Province in November.

“I learned Internet of Things is a network that can be applied to infrastructure and services. The program will have a rosy prospect,” Wen said.

According to Internet of Things, when objects ranging from books to airplanes are equipped with minuscule identifying devices, they can be identified and managed through computer networks.

Internet of Things was one example Premier Wen cited while outlining the country’s initiatives to foster new growth areas, especially in emerging strategic industries.”
