The Biggest Robot

...Increasingly, human intervention will be unnecessary. The sensors will collect data. The system's smarts will interpret the data and figure out what to do. And the actuators will do things in our world. You can think of the sensors as the eyes and ears of the Internet, the actuators as the hands and feet of the Internet, and the stuff in the middle as the brain. This makes the future clearer. The Internet now senses, thinks, and acts.
Bruce, from an essay with profound and philosophical connotations, entitled The Internet of Things Will Be the World's Biggest Robot.

Taking in consideration a non-dystopian perspective of view, the essay is clear and stunning. Worth a read. Or three. Or two.

Addenda: It has to be noticed that the original article appeared in Forbes. Due to some adblocking method this yours truly has implemented into his machine, and guessing maybe you a similar method either, the link to the essay refers to the original Bruce's site, not Forbes.
