The Silent Intelligence is a book about the Internet of Things phenomenon. In it we talk about the history, trends, technology ecosystem and the future of the Internet of Things, Connected Cities, Connected Homes, Connected Health and Connected Cars. We also discuss the most promising areas for entrepreneurs and venture investors. We share exciting stories and unique opinions of over 30 industry veterans, experts and visionaries from Google, Ericcson, AT&T, Qualcomm, Accenture, SAP, MIT, EcoLife Foundation and many others.
We called this book The Silent Intelligence because most of the activity and growth in the space has so far been happening outside of mainstream visibility. We hope that our book will help executives, entrepreneurs, investors and everybody else better understand the opportunities and challenges of the Internet of Things and will get them as excited about the upcoming possibilities as we are.
