Wired and wireless communications technologies have transformed every aspect of our daily lives. Today we can hardly imagine staying in touch with our friends, shopping, travelling, watching TV or banking without connected devices. From today's perspective it might appear that this technology-led transformation is complete however the coming years will in fact see a much bigger revolution as the internet rapidly changes the way we run our cities, reduce our carbon emissions, drive our cars and even mange our own health. The technology issues to be solved are hugely challenging but the rewards will be huge; here at the Smart Internet Lab we are bringing that vision to life.
