Google Chairman Eric Schmidt Says: "The Internet Will Disappear"
What? Huh? Remember what I wrote yesterday? Well, this is one of those whoppers I mentioned!
At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Google guru Eric Schmidt gave an answer regarding the evolution of the web. “I will answer very simply that the internet will disappear,” Schmidt said on Thursday.
“There will be so many IP addresses, … so many devices, sensors, things that you are wearing, things that you are interacting with that you won’t even sense it, it will be part of your presence all the time,” he explained. “Imagine you walk into a room, and the room is dynamic. And with your permission and all of that, you are interacting with the things going on in the room.”
“A highly personalized, highly interactive and very, very interesting world emerges,” Schmidt concluded.
At the panel, dubbed “The Future of the Digital Economy”, he was speaking with Vodafone CEO Vittorio Colao, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.
Vodafone’s Chief Executive Officer Vittorio Colao agreed with Schmidt, comparing the internet with“water, oxygen” in an “ultra-dense connectivity situation.”
All I can say is...
