Self-driving cars: The death of the auto industry as we know it

$400.00

This report talks us through the mechanisms of how private vehicle ownership in developed economies will fall off a cliff after 2030, and with plummeting direct-to-consumer sales, automakers will be forced to become service providers selling vehicles and maintenance to larger industrialized customers, buying fleets of autonomous cars for ride sharing.
People who should read this report include: technology firms which wish to supply components for autonomous cars; financial organizations which fund car ownership; ride sharing services; commercial fleet owners; car manufacturers and their suppliers; in-vehicle service suppliers; car servicing agencies, governments and regulators. The price is for an individual copy of the report. To purchase a license for your entire company, please email [email protected]

How smart grids solve the entire global energy problem

$400.00

This report looks at the fledgling smart grids sector of today and views it as the beginning of a large transition away from existing electricity capacity to a series of decentralized networks distributing power on the edge.
The global power industry will be severely impacted by cheap renewable electricity available in 450 million homes worldwide by 2026. Disruptive technologies in the IoT (Internet of Things) sector and in battery storage will create a booming “smart grids” industry with multiple business opportunities.
Why this is so is explained in a new report called 'How Smart Grids Solve the Global Energy Problem', a study about the effect of acceleration of solar power generation and battery storage in the home.
Over 25 pages, this executive summary is about smart grids and how power utilities and consumers are beginning to add internet connectivity to their grid and home assets. Consumer-oriented power generation will lead to surpluses which will alter the fundamental economics of energy.
The prices shown are for a single user license. If you wish to purchase a multi-user or corporate license, please contact [email protected]

Beware the Five Myths of the Internet of Things

$400.00

The numbers associated with the Internet of Things (IoT) are both huge (anything from 50 billion to 100 billion objects to be connected by 2020, generating, by some forecasts, $800bn in revenues) and tiny (sensors the size of dust particles).
The extremes themselves make the subject compelling, as does the name, with its sense of a whole new future unfolding like a sci-fi movie in our own lifetimes.
In many respects, the technologies are available to make this happen. But without a firm commercial footing, the IoT will remain in the realm of research labs and PR companies. We know from many generations of connected technology – public Wi-Fi, 3G, even the Internet itself – that consumer uptake usually lags technology, and that sound profit models usually lag consumer interest.
The Internet of Things will be no different. Before it really does start to change the way we live – and it does have the potential, bit by bit, to do that – there need to be some difficult questions.

Riot Annual Survey, February 2017

$200.00

These are the results of Riot’s inaugural annual survey. In short, we thought it high-time for a survey of our readers, to find out what they have been up to in their respective sectors.

We simply used three mail-shots and a link in our regular email campaigns to collect responses. We didn’t offer incentives, or aggressively bombard our readers with notifications – we simply asked if they had an IoT story they could tell, and pointed them to a survey.

Riot Labor Automation; Robotics and AI, balancing job losses with wealth creation

$400.00

How will AI and Robotics save US companies $300 billion in salaries by 2030?

Riot Labor Automation; Robotics and AI, balancing job losses with wealth creation

Evidence is mounting that savings from emerging Internet of Things technologies, especially AI and Robotics, will be paid for by an unprecedented number of semi-skilled jobs disappearing all over the world. There will be over 10 million jobs in the US alone, replaced in industry over the next 15 years by Robotics and AI, saving companies hundreds of billions of dollars each year. Globally such savings could eventually reach into trillions of dollars.

Rethink tracks the reasons in this special Riot paper on employment. It comes FREE for paying subscribers to our enterprise IoT service Riot, but can also be purchased separately. In this special report, we dive into a touchy subject pulling no punches.

The impact will come from robotics on the one hand, which cuts jobs associated with the physical world, and AI which slashes them in the digital world. We think of robots as moving atoms, and AI organizing bits. They both have an equally potent bearing on jobs.

Millions of truck drivers will worry about emerging autonomous vehicles. Hundreds of thousands of workers in insurance, engineering, IT helpdesks, customer services, field service engineers, and in the rugged environment of oil and gas will be displaced by AI, and take the eventual casualties to over 10 million job cuts in the US alone. As chat bots are perfected, the axe will begin to fall on these and many other occupations.

It’s hard to extract income tax from a driverless car, and even harder to request worker’s rights for a taxi driven by AI.

These technologies will disrupt economies, deprive governments of vital income tax, but bring huge benefits to the early adopters, and kill off big brands who are too slow to embrace them.

Should we bemoan the loss of these jobs or push as hard as we can to create progress?

The answer is simple. You are either one of the companies making money from these opportunities, or you are part of those being swept aside by the tide of history. The global economy always bounces back.

This report unravels the rate of uptake in Robotics and the frenzy behind AI adoption, which threatens to overtake it, with $12 billion of investment spent across 2,000 AI companies in the past 5 years.
