The “Internet of Objects” is a superset of the “Internet of Things”.  An object can be a person, a plant, an animal, a song, an event, a fictional place, an idea, a named tropical storm, a pothole, etc. Anyone can create an <object> using their smartphone. You can enrich your <object> a lot or a little. You can interact with any discoverable <object>.

You can build a [process] using multiple <object>s. A [process] is an activity flow. For example, you build a [process] called [commute to work]. You drag and drop <object>s into your [commute to work] process that you think are relevant to this activity. You then glue these <object>s together using process tools and supplies. This approach is more analogous to painting or writing music than computer programming which is why it is so broadly adopted. Billions of people LOVE building, improving, enriching, re-engineering processes. In the PROCESS STORE, billions of users subscribe to free and fee-based processes just like we do with the APP STORE today.

Your [commute to work] process is very dynamic. It adjusts every second to the {state} of the <object>: weather conditions, traffic conditions, vehicle conditions, schedule changes, family emergencies, heart rate, stress levels, etc. It works on your behalf in the background with the sole objective to improve your life. For example, your [commute to work] process detected your stress levels after the <family emergency> flag. Your [commute to work] process immediately begins interacting with discoverable objects and the appropriate [in case of an emergency] process to improve your life. After analyzing the process flows, your AGENT begins to act on your behalf by texting your spouse; scheduling a doctor’s appointment, rescheduling your business meetings, etc.

The Internet of Objects will create so much value in your life, that functioning without objects, processes and agents will be extremely difficult. If your processes are “down” for any reason, is analogous to trying to travel when the airline reservation systems are “down”. The Internet of Objects will become so embedded in our daily lives, that our education system will have to be completely revamped to teach humans basic life skills.

This will occur in your lifetime.
