The Internet of Nothing and The Internet of Things

"There is a growing number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices that slowly penetrate the medical arena. However, some implementations of IoT technology not fully consider how people really like to conduct their lives or what their needs are. In addition, measurements by some of these devices have a low accuracy. This “nothingness” is what I tend to call the Internet of Nothing


Dr. Nahum Gershon focuses on social media, the Internet of Things, strategic planning, visualization, combining creative expressions with technology and real-time information delivery, presentation & interaction (including storytelling) in mobile, wearable as well as traditional devices including how they could improve both organizational environments and our personal lives. He like to play with ideas, words, and real devices.
