It’s Your Internet of Things

We have built the IoTA platform to inspire a revolution in open connectivity, devices and sensors to help you shape the world around you, the future of the Internet of Things (IoT) is about you. With IoTA, you create the data to provide evidence, for real change within your community and beyond. IoT shouldn’t be limited to big data, smart cities and a select few having access to enormous piles of incomprehensible datasets. Our platform helps you to stop being a data spectator: measuring or being measured with no insight into where the data goes or what it means. IoTA encourages people to understand the data they create and use it for advocacy purposes.

Hugh uses futures intelligence to help organisations develop new ideas and encourage entrepreneurs to experiment with sustainability challenges. His recent projects include FutureScapes which looks at how technology can help people lead more sustainable lives with Sony Europe, and Clean Horizons – a long term innovation project with Ecover. He has recently launched the Internet of Things Academy – a platform to help people create change with the data they create. He is author of a number of future scenarios including Retail Futures and Consumer Futures and has written for Green Futures magazine on futures techniques and trends. He regularly blogs on weak signals – elements of the future that are here but not mainstream. Hugh has a BSc (Hons) in Biological Sciences from Edinburgh University.
