#swisstechtalks: The Internet of Tagged Things
As you might know the IoT as a term came out of the Auto-ID Labs. They coined the term when talking to P&G to describe a day in which all their products would have RFID tags somehow connected to information systems on the Internet.
In this talk I will report on the state of the nation in tagged things. This often forgotten space is at the edge of a silent revolution: from printed electronics starting to make it to apparel and CPG (consumer packaged goods) to the rise of low-power (e.g., LPWAN) and power harvesting technologies, to the role of blockchains in goods tracking and authenticity and finally to the upgrade of the new GS1 Digital Link standard that will slowly replace the famous barcode with a Web-enabled 2D identifier.
All these developments will change our world, not only our smart homes and smart cities but actually every single CPG item we consume or apparel item we wear.
