Marco Annunziata, “Welcome to the age of the industrial internet”

http://www.ted.com/talks/marco_annunziata_welcome_to_the_age_of_the_industrial_internet

In this thoughtful talk, economist Marco Annunziata looks at how the “internet of things” is transforming the industrial sector, creating machines that can see, feel, sense and react — so they can be operated far more efficiently.
