OUTLINE of the presentation:
I. Foresight perspective on IoT and related drivers
II. IoT and the „Power of Social“
Thesis I: Most of IoT has as much to do with social relationships as it does with technology
Thesis II: Socio-centric analysis complementing the user‐centric standards
Thesis III: Network theory and Social Capital theory are essential perspectives to build a framework for IoT development/UXD
A dominant part of the slidedeck introduces the study "Connected Reality 2025".
The Living Bridges Planet community (facebook group of 6.800) is intended as an exemplification of applied Social Capital theory. Since 2012 a "network of networks" has been – including frequent video chats, peer2peer learning, knowledge flow, the spreading and the re-accumulation of the social capital form trust. This dynamics illustrates the "power of social".
Implications for IoT design and development are affecting the IoT research design and the assumptions / process design in product and service development. (See theses above)
