The Internet of Things is an emerging Information and Communication Technology with revolutionary potentials. Its areas of application include (1) the real-time measurement of the state of our techno-socioeconomic- environmental systems, (2) the development of a Global Systems Science to manage our world more successfully, (3) greater awareness of chances and risks to support everyone’s decision-making, (4) possibilities to enable self-organizing systems, and (5) opportunities to create collective intelligence. I will, in particular, reveal plans to build a “Planetary Nervous System” as a Citizen Web, which is envisioned to be an open and participatory information system to unleash the power of the Internet of Things for everyone in the world.
