Digital Life in 2025
The Internet of Things
Will Thrive by 2025
Net Threats by 2025
Digital Life in 2025
• This is an open-ended question allowing you
to make your own prediction about the role of
the Internet in people’s lives in 2025 and the
impact it will have on social, economic and
political processes. Good and/or bad, what do
you expect to be the most significant overall
impacts of our uses of the Internet on
humanity between now and 2025?
Digital Life in 2025
The Internet will become ‘like electricity’ —
less visible, yet more deeply embedded in
people’s lives for good and ill
Development Themes
• A global, immersive, invisible, ambient networked computing
environment built through the continued proliferation of smart
sensors, cameras, software, databases, and massive data centers
in a world-spanning information fabric known as the Internet of
Things.
• “Augmented reality” enhancements to the real-world input that
people perceive through the use of portable / wearable /
implantable technologies.
• Disruption of business models established in the 20th century
(most notably impacting finance, entertainment, publishers of all
sorts, and education).
• Tagging, databasing, and intelligent analytical mapping of the
physical and social realms.
Hopeful theses
1) Information sharing over the Internet will be effortlessly
interwoven into daily life.
2) The spread of the Internet will enhance global connectivity that
fosters more planetary relationships and less ignorance.
3) The Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and big data will make
people more aware of their world and their own behavior.
4) Augmented reality and wearable devices will be implemented to
monitor and give quick feedback on daily life, especially tied to
personal health.
5) Political awareness and action will be facilitated and more peaceful
change and public uprisings like Arab Spring will emerge.
6) An Internet-enabled revolution in education will spread more
opportunities, with less money spent on real estate and teachers.
Downbeat theses
1) Dangerous divides between haves and have-nots may expand,
resulting in resentment and possible violence.
2) Abuses and abusers will ‘evolve and scale.’ Human nature isn’t
changing; there’s laziness, bullying, stalking, stupidity,
pornography, dirty tricks, crime, and those who practice them
have new capacity to make life miserable for others.
3) Pressured by these changes, governments and corporations will
try to assert power as they invoke security and cultural norms.
4) People will continue — sometimes grudgingly — to make
tradeoffs favoring convenience over privacy; and privacy will be
something only the upscale will enjoy.
5) Humans and their organizations may not respond quickly enough
to challenges presented by complex networks.
The Internet of Things Will Thrive by 2025
• The evolution of embedded devices and the
Internet/Cloud of Things —As billions of
devices, artifacts, and accessories are
networked, will the Internet of Things have
widespread and beneficial effects on the
everyday lives of the public by 2025?
Future of Internet of Things
Yes – widespread and
beneficial
83%
No
17%
It‘s the next revolution. Upsides: enhanced health,
convenience, productivity, safety, and vastly more
useful information. Downsides: privacy challenges,
over-hyped expectations, and tech complexity.
The Internet of Things Will Thrive by 2025
Development Themes
BODY
HOMES
COMMUNITIES
ENVIRONMENT
Themes
1) The realities of this data-drenched world raise substantial concerns
about privacy and people’s abilities to control their own lives. The
level of profiling and targeting will grow and amplify social, economic,
and political struggles.
2) Information interfaces will advance—especially voice and touch
commands. But few expect that brain-to-network connectivity will be
typical in most people’s daily lives by 2025
3) There will be complicated, unintended consequences: ‘We will live in
a world where many things won’t work and nobody will know how to
fix them.’
4) The unconnected and those who just don’t want to be connected may
be disenfranchised.
Net Threats by 2025
• Accessing and sharing content online—By
2025 will there be significant changes for the
worse and hindrances to the ways in which
people get and share content online compared
with the way globally networked people can
operate online today?
Future of Content Sharing
Yes – significant hindrances
35%
No (optimistic response)
65%
Experts have hope, but anticipate battles
to preserve openness.
Net Threats by 2025
Threats
1) Actions by nation-states to maintain security and political
control will lead to more blocking, filtering,
segmentation, and balkanization of the Internet.
2) Trust will evaporate in the wake of revelations about
government and corporate surveillance and likely greater
surveillance in the future.
3) Commercial pressures affecting everything from Internet
architecture to the flow of information will endanger the
open structure of online life.
4) Efforts to fix the TMI (too much information) problem
might over-compensate and actually thwart content
sharing.
Why predictions matter
Ithiel De Sola Pool, “Technologies of Freedom”
On the printing press, telegraph, radio,
television
“These technologies caused revised
conceptions of man's place in the universe”
Amen!
