Britt Technology Impact Series: Innovation
The Britt Technology Impact Series (BTIS) provides MBA candidates and the Tuck and Dartmouth communities with insights into how changes in technology affect individuals, impact enterprises and reshape industries. The series explores a different theme each academic year through events including panel discussions with industry leaders, one-on-one meetings with executives and academic seminars. At year-end, the center produces an overview of the findings that gives students unique perspectives on relevant business and technology issues. This program is made possible by a generous donation from Glenn Britt, Chairman & CEO of Time Warner Cable.
The 2013-14 Britt Technology Impact Series is examining how the physical world is becoming fully embedded with technology in a series titled, The Internet of You: Better Living Through Connectivity.
Past series have looked at big data, cloud computing, social technology, mobillity, video and web 2.0.
Current Series: The Internet of You: Better Living Through Connectivity (#IoY)
The 2013-14 Britt Technology Impact Series is exploring how the internet is expanding from a network of connected PCs to a far broader array of devices that enable highly personalized interactions with technology. Consider that in 10 years an average household with two teenagers will have about 50 devices connected to the internet; today it has about 10. This explosion of devices with an IP address – often called the internet of things – represents a fundamental shift for consumers and enterprises. Search-and-click will still occur but the internet of the future will be far better at serving up what you need when you need it. The internet becomes your butler rather than a cluttered storeroom of often irrelevant information and services. How might this look? Your internet will respond to emails and tweets without guidance. Your internet will direct your self-driving car to stop by the store for milk on your way home. Your internet will use wearable devices and other technology to detect and stave off an impending flu. It will contact your doctor and, if necessary, dispense medicine at home through your 3-D printer. The shift from having to “go online” to simply always being connected and aided through an array of devices and services is the result of profound changes in technology. The profound shift from a one-size-fits-all internet to one that fits you presents enormous opportunities but also profound challenges. The Britt Series is exploring the implications for both enterprises and consumers.
