Commerce2: The Internet of Everything

November 8, 2017
Washington, DC

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way companies and individuals operate. With the touch of a button or a flick of the wrist, consumers can pay for products on-the-go, control home climate systems and track health data in real time. From devices to cars to entire cities, “things” are becoming smarter and more connected.

In a series of conversations, The Atlantic brought together leading stakeholders across industries including technology, higher education and government to explore the impact of advancements in IoT. What challenges do cities and companies face in building digital infrastructure to support new technologies? How will new innovations affect the consumer experience? What will it take to ensure security and reliability in a vulnerable cyber world?
