This week the Mobile World Congress (MWC) took place in Barcelona. From Suara we have had the opportunity to be present through the Forum VII CIO Vodafone with the theme "Transforming innovation into results"..

Inside the MWC Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, insists on bringing internet for free through an application ensuring that the most important thing is to connect people, not devices. A solution that would open up a lot of possibilities at all levels. A solution, however, not without controversy where large communications companies are wondering who would be in charge of the application. Quite a social challenge.

We also find the internet of things, a strong concept that brings us closer to the reality that things can communicate with each other and with us. A scenario where people and things can transfer data through the network. Anything can connect to the Internet, join a database and help us in our daily lives. Huawei shows how in a house with various sensors, they communicate with each other and alert the cell phone when the combination of factors we choose occurs. An interesting bet.

And experiences such as those of the Vodafone Foundation, whose mission is to carry out and promote social and innovation projects to improve the quality of life of people, especially the disabled and the elderly, developing mobile technology that enhances and discovers capabilities.

In 2020 our digital universe will be 44 times larger than in 2009. Are we ready for a smart world?
