Presentation on M2M and market failure at Internet of Things-week

Last week I was invited to the European Commission's expert group on the Internet of Things to speak on OECD work. It was in Venice during Internet of Things-week, which sounds great until you realize it was 35 degrees Celsisus outside and 40 degrees inside. The European Commission currently is doing a consultation on the Internet of Things, so if you have opinions, voice them! Unsurprisingly maybe, I put the focus on market failure that currently impedes the growth of the Internet of Things.

Update: Here are some links to where I got the data:
