The Super Internet of Things (IoT ) platform will connect New Communication, New Energy and New Transportation. It will increase the productivity dramatically and promote sharing economy.
Jeremy Rifkin will lay out a “Game plan for the future”, referring to the advent of a smart green digital economy as part of the Third Industrial Revolution. Rifkin argues that we are about to experience fundamental changes to our societies and economies, as a result of the digitization of communication, energy, and transportation. Together, a digitized communication Internet, a digitized renewable energy Internet, and a digitized automated Transportation and Logistics Internet, will create a super-Internet of Things infrastructure. This Internet of Things infrastructure will have to be scaled up and supported in order to enable the transition to a Third Industrial Revolution. Rifkin considers the European Union and China leaders in this quest for change. He highlights, in particular, the economic and social opportunities that could arise from such a transition.

Mark Zuckerberg : “Today in 2017 at our F8 developer conference, we’re making the camera the first augmented reality(AR) platform. We all know where we want augmented reality to get: glasses or eventually contact lenses that look and feel normal, and let you overlay all kinds of information and digital content on the real world. But in the last couple of years, we’ve started to see primitive examples of AR on phones in the camera.
For those of you who have watched us roll out cameras across all our apps and have asked what we’re doing, that was act one. Now this is act two: giving developers the power to build all kinds of AR tools into the first augmented reality platform, the camera.
We’re all about extending the physical world online. When you become friends with someone or become part of a community on Facebook, your real relationships and physical communities become stronger. AR is going to help us mix the digital and the physical in new ways, and make our physical lives better. That’s why it’s so important, and this is just the beginning.”
