Excellent article.  It's going to be fascinating to see the varied ways that there will be far more data-driven transactions between machines than between people. Good examples of potential applications in health care, remote control of assets, security and fleet management.  Thank you.

I am seeing this technology at work during volunteer exercises for my county's Medical Reserve Corps.  At a simulated disaster, patients are triaged and the info is entered by a wireless scanner, then transmitted to various hospitals.  This gives the emergency rooms information about the severity and number of casualties to expect.  It's a whole lot easier than manually entering information.

Information can be like how many cows have been milked, how much milk each cow is producing, etc.
