 Jens Mack: Connected Buildings and Smart Cities

The lead-in presentation by Jens Mack, Bosch Senior Vice President Sales and Business Development Building Technologies, illustrated how urbanization and demographic change are reshaping the demands placed on buildings. One such example is the Internet of Things (IoT): Today, six billion devices are connected to the Internet, and “by 2020 it will be an estimated 20 billion,” said Mack. This creates new opportunities and possibilities for networked solutions and services. Futurologist and strategy expert Michael Carl from Denkfabrik 2bAhead further discussed this megatrend. According to Carl, IoT will not only network technical devices with one another, but it will affect all spheres of life. He therefore advocates using the term ‘Internet of Everything.’
