Scale and scaling of IoT: from digital sensor to global information infrastructure

Period: Mar 01, 2018 - Jun 25, 2021
Status: laufend

This interdisciplinary study is being conducted with colleagues from the Sydney University Business School. The aim of the project is to deepen understanding of the Internet of Things (IoT) and digital transformation through an interdisciplinary examination of matters of scale, scaling and cross-scale dynamics in IoT information infrastructures. The IoT is widely acknowledged as a key driver in transforming business and society. Yet to date limited attention has been directed towards socio-technical change issues and considerable uncertainty remains about the scale, nature, timing and impact of the associated digital transformations.


In progress.
