The INTERNET OF THINGS is powerful, but the real transformation is THE INTERNET OF PEOPLE
Momentum is building fast around the next big broadband advancement: a world where billions of intelligent sensors and devices produce the data ingredients for a quantum leap forward in environmental intelligence, automation, predictability and ubiquitous connectivity. These capabilities will have dramatic and positive impact on our economy and our quality of life.

Building and empowering intelligent broadband services that connect every American household to massive real-time analytics will produce astonishing results in economic growth, social interaction and human potential. With the Internet of People, we will create opportunity. We will better manage our resources in a world where there are limits to raw materials and a rising global population. A true global economy will flourish. And humanity will thrive.
