Re: healthcare
@linkedin67228 Thanks for your question and welcome to the site. I certainly don't think just any companies will be capable of developing IoT solutions, healthcare or otherwise. The process involves significant technological investments and there are plenty of hoops to jump through where data is concerned, especially for healthcare.

As for the dangers of the IoT itself, I think it's just as it was with the rise of the internet - there are too many potential implications (both positive and negative) to make one definitive moral judgement. What's for certain is that our lives will be impacted massively, and things will be very different once the IoT has truly manifested itself!

healthcare
Thank you , Jeremy Coward for your post. I am afraid that many applications can be very dangerous. People will not be apply to the doctors And trust some applications, it will be dangerous for health . I found a company that is engaged in the development of such applications https://itechcraft.com/custom-healthcare-solutions/ . and I have a question. Do you think that any company able to develop applications?

Smarter cities...?
I wonder if smarter cities will still allow private drones to surveil an entire city without anyone knowing until after the fact... The IoT will probably allow for even more monitoring of every move people make, so privacy may be at risk - just by going outside.

Re: Congrats/smart cities
Thanks - I don't believe any cities currently have a Chief Smart City Officer by name... yet! But many do have individuals essentially fulfilling that function (such as Atlanta). On the other hand, others don't see that particular job role as necessary (the CIO of Boston holds that view). It'll be really interesting to see which way things go in the coming years.

Congrats/smart cities
Thanks, Jeremy! Congrats on the site launch. I am looking forward to it, and am personally curious to know how many cities/which ones have these Chief Smart City Officers and what affect they've had so far. Is Chicago one of them??
