The information cloud overhanging the global economy has many silver linings. Never has setting up one’s own information technology company been easier or less costly in the initial phases. Innovation has been the immediate child of such progress, and in this year’s reports, we can see the linking up of product, payment and information archiving. 2012 was the first year that a stock market for personal data has been seriously mooted. There is genuine interest from big companies such as Oracle, IBM, Qualcomm and more. Driverless cars add another dimension to the locational advertising possibilities.
The reports in this Research Review cover intelligent buildings, wallets, cameras and more. Digital life has become the enveloping experience its early founders had predicted and hoped for.
