The Science of Smart Things
Alan Radley (Kim Veltman Perspective Institute, UK)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-7010-4.ch008
An ontological analysis of the application of the key concept of synergy to the internet of things (IoT) is presented. The authors begin by defining synergy as it applies to all types of human-made objects, and in particular to connected things, along the way developing a new theory of synergetic accommodation that provides a detailed aetiology of smart technology. A presentation of the history, routes, plus a complete definition of smart technology is given before looking at how the IoT is developing today and might progress in the future for the benefit of all humankind. Accordingly, the authors develop two new concepts, situated and distributed intelligence, that may be used to develop practically useful smart technology that fully meets the needs of the future in terms of providing efficient, magnified, reliable, safe, automated, and economical services.

In many traditional approaches, human cognition has been seen as existing solely “inside” a person’s head, and studies on cognition have often disregarded the physical and social surroundings in which cognition takes place. Distributed intelligence provides an effective theoretical framework for understanding what humans can achieve and how artifacts, tools, and socio-technical environments can be designed and evaluated to empower human beings and to change tasks6.
