"Council is a think tank that is project based and that aims to get the best people in the Internet of Things field in all the ranges of expertise.
Ideallly forecasting then becomes prototyping.
Forecasting by prototyping is a phrase of Ben Russell, the author of Headmap.
Council is developing methodologies, formats, forms of presentation and tools for mediation. We want to show institutions, government agencies and companies how they look now and how they will look after IoT.
We believe IoT constitutes an new ontology. Qualities and properties of a) citizens/end users, b) industry and c) governance will merge to form new leading actors. These three groups have always been quite distinct and sometimes antagonistic."
