Our response to the Walport Report on the IoT
In an age when the ability of the government to ‘pick winners’ is widely disparaged and faith in the untrammeled market as the arbiter of all thing is largely unchallenged, it is not easy to write a report on what government policy towards the Internet of Things (IoT) should be. Moreover, the subject area is potentially very large, the boundaries very porous, and the level of understanding even among the informed public is not very high. The Prime Minister’s request to the Chief Scientist to “to explore what more we must do in this area” could easily have generated a vacuous document with no clear advice or role for government. This Research Note summarizes our response to Professor Sir Mark Walport’s report.
