Abstract

The paper main goal is to systemic analyze an emergent field of the information and communications technologies (ICT), the Internet of things (IoT). Starting from premises as the mass proliferation and the „giant wave” of IoT in the larger context of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) exponential evolution in the Information society (IS) toward Knowledge Based Society (KBS), which penetrates and transform almost anything, the paper identifyed and analyzed the essential implications/conditions of IoT development at Earth scale: the main driving factors(DFAC), resources(RES) and challenges(CHA). For DFAC, a systemic criteria, generally for ICT evolution and then for IoT development, would be to follow simplicity and essential needs rules when expanding, because despite all expected benefits of any application, especially when large numbers are expected, negative consequences could refer to Earth resources fading, climate changes (CO2 footprint at planetary scale), humankind healthy/secure evolution or World social unbalances. A special focus is on health, because despite the real amazing achievements IoT could bring, considering the actual ones, we have to watch the IoT development as some products/services and facilities could directly or indirectly harm humankind healthy evolution. For RES and CHA, the technical essential implications/conditions of developing IoT at Earth scale are analized. Here IoT as a Big network of networks, Big Data processing, the survival of Moore Law and power/energy sources were analyzed pointing the corresponding main challenges and solutions perspectives. Finally, among the big „Questions” concerning the main challenges of IoT development, the paper adresses the complex field of educational consequences, concluding on the tremendous influence of IoT/ICT in IS/KBS on humankind evolution and emphasizing the capacity to optimally use the technological progress (first considering the Internet) and the creative potential – which eventually influences innovation and...ICT.
