We cover everything that relates to the Internet of Things. If it's connected, we want to hear about it. We are fascinated by the impending "Machine Economy", where machines will become smarter, more intelligent, and eventually fully autonomous. The Internet is transforming from a Social Web to a Machine Web, that we like to call Web 3.0 and it is defined by the convergence of three primary components; IoT, AI & DLT.
We promote conferences, workshops, hardware hackathons, and meetups that relate to IoT, AI, and DLT (Blockchain, DAGs, Hashgraph, Hyperledger, and Cryptocurrency). We think the impending Machine Economy, powered by a global network of autonomous machines, will transform the way we live and work - for the better.
A perfect storm of innovation is finally making the Machine Economy aka "Web 3.0" a reality. Our focus is data decentralisation and machine automation. We help our clients understand and leverage the latest innovations that include Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). To find out more contact us.

In the aftermath of the magnitude 9.0 earthquake that struck off the coast of Japan’s Honshu Island in 2011, primary power and cooling systems at Tokyo Electric Power Company’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant were knocked offline. Three of the reactors melted within the first three days, mainly as a result of flooding from the nearly 50-foot tidal wave generated by the earthquake. And in the months that followed, an estimated 600 tons of radioactive fuel leaked from storage units. The reactors are expected to take 30 to 40 years to decommission.
Commercial 5G networks are barely operational in the United States right now, but that hasn’t stopped engineers from thinking ahead to 6G — and the U.S. government wants to facilitate their experiments over the next decade. After a unanimous vote, the FCC is opening “terahertz wave” spectrum for experimental purposes, creating legal ways for companies to test and sell post-5G wireless equipment.
The IoT Solutions World Congress (IoTSWC), the largest international event devoted to innovation in the industrial internet of things (IIoT), will return to Fira de Barcelona’s Gran Via venue from 29 to 31 October. In its fifth year, the IoTSWC will reveal the real scope of the digital transformation in different industrial sectors and businesses that are incorporating disruptive technologies such as IoT, blockchain and artificial intelligence into their activity. The major suppliers of industrial solutions and information technology providers heading this paradigm shift will take part as exhibitors, together with experts who will present the trends that are driving this rapidly-expanding market.
The IoT Tech Expo Europe; will arrive in Amsterdam this June to host 500+ industry leaders exploring the future of enterprise technology with a two-day conference stream covering the future of industrial IoT. Speakers within this conference stream include senior representatives from Airbus, Pirelli, EY, Transdev, Siemens and Tata Steel. Europe’s leading IoT conference will return to the RAI Amsterdam on the 19-20 June and is set to welcome 10,000 attendees across the 4 co-located events comprising of IoT, AI, big data, cyber security, cloud and blockchain.
Smart cities and opportunities that digital transformation and IoT technologies offer can help to improve the quality of life in urban cities. However, this “smart” urban landscape, with numerous connected devices and vast communication network, opens up a whole new set of security challenges—challenges that cannot be addressed by the existing conventional cybersecurity solutions.
Paul R Brody doesn’t mince words. As EY’s Global Innovation Leader (Blockchain), Brody visited India last month, and said that building any blockchain solution isn’t about the technology, but the people and process that surround it. In fact, associating blockchain with cryptocurrency has probably had a negative impact on its adoption, even in India.
The rogue code can disable safety systems designed to prevent catastrophic industrial accidents. It was discovered in the Middle East, but the hackers behind it are now targeting companies in North America and other parts of the world, too. As an experienced cyber first responder, Julian Gutmanis had been called plenty of times before to help companies deal with the fallout from cyberattacks. But when the Australian security consultant was summoned to a petrochemical plant in Saudi Arabia in the summer of 2017, what he found made his blood run cold.
Rolls-Royce has publicly demonstrated what it calls the “world’s first fully autonomous ferry” on a trip between Parainen and Nauvo in Finland. The British company entered a research partnership with Finnish state-owned Finferries back in May, revealing plans to “optimize ship safety and efficiency” through developing and demonstrating autonomous ferry technologies.
Autonomous trucks made by Volvo will soon be hauling stone out of a Norwegian limestone mine, the car firm has announced. What it’ll deliver: Six autonomous trucks will transport limestone the five-kilometer (three-mile) route through tunnels between a mine owned by local firm Brønnøy Kalk AS and a processing facility at a nearby port.
As we arrive back in the UK following a hugely successful IoT Solutions World Congress event in Barcelona, I wanted to take a few minutes to reflect on the show but also pass on my thoughts on what has been a pretty busy first 3 months for me at IOTech. One of my first roles since joining IOTech as a Solutions Architect was to help put together the EdgeX Foundry Community Demonstrator in time for its first scheduled appearance at the Barcelona event.
Today’s web is pretty much controlled by an oligopoly of tech giants that I will refer to as “GAFAM”. They have grown incredibly rich by hoovering up personal data belonging to billions of people and using it to develop incredibly addictive products. This practice is, in most cases, perfectly legal as it is done with the consent of their users.
Montford's Rule is a new one for our times… “Every time there is a step change in technology it’s heralded as a revolution - now it's real,” he alleges. And Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the key. We are now no longer just looking at the loss of labour to technology that the evanescence of tasks that have for centuries required a high degree of intellect and evaluation. There’s a sense of urgency highlighted by the publication last month of arguably the U.K.'s most focused new industrial strategy to be announced in the past two and a half decades.
ICOs are funding the creation of a new decentralised web (PART I) Once upon a time there was a substance called ether, also known as quintessence, that delighted and baffled medieval scientists for centuries. They postulated that it was a medium used by light to travel through the vacuum of space. It was also thought to be responsible for all kinds of other complex scientific phenomena. At the end of the 19th century, the scientific community collectively disavowed the notion, and concluded that it never existed. Ironic then that ether should, well, disappear into the ether.
After Money: What Happens Next? As technology becomes ever more fundamental to citizens, societies and economies, Simon Montford, the founder of WEB3//IOT visited the After Money money symposium looking at issues from identity and privacy to decentralisation, autonomy and democracy itself.

the MACHINE WEB is about to change the world!
IOT is transitioning into IOT 2.0, and will be part of the machine web WEB 3.0; a global network of autonomous connected devices powered by machine intelligence running on a distributed decentralised protocol.
With the advent of cryptocurrency and smart contracts, machines will be able to make a living by charging fees for all kinds of services. Soon there will be ten times more machines than people inhabiting the planet, and the machines will get smarter and more sophisticated.
The impending machine economy, powered by this global network of autonomous machines, will transform the way we live and work - for the better. Connected sensors embedded within all kinds of objects will make the world smarter, safer, and more energy efficient. Almost every industrial vertical and facet of society will be impacted by the Machine Economy.
