Engineering Hardware and Software Systems with a Passion for InnovationGet in touch
Some time ago Howard Bloom made an analogy between bees and people. In a colony most bees will always look in the same known places for pollen. A small number of bees of the colony will explore other places for new supplies far away from their hive. Some of these bees will starve in their attempt but others will find new places and save the colony when known places to find pollen are exhausted. These exploring bees correspond to the visionaries and innovators of our society. Innovation creates new business success and is needed to sustain business over time. Due to globalization and an increasingly fast changing world innovation becomes more and more a key and vital factor that determines not only our quality of live but also our future as a species on this planet.
Today the global economy and our planet of humans is in crisis. The exponential exhaustion of natural resources, declining productivity, slow growth, rising unemployment, and steep inequality, forces us to rethink our economic models. Where do we go from here?
Currently a new Industrial Revolution is unfolding with the convergence of three pivotal technologies: an ultra-fast 5G communication
internet, a renewable energy internet, and a driverless mobility internet, all connected to the Internet of Things embedded across
society and the environment. This smart digital infrastructure is giving rise to a radical new sharing economy that is
transforming the way we manage, power and move economic life. But with climate change now ravaging the planet, it needs to happen fast. Change of this magnitude requires political will and a profound ideological shift.
In this feature-length documentary, social and economic theorist Jeremy Rifkin lays out a road map towards a new economic system that can address climate change and create a more equitable and empathic world.
Everything that can connect will be connected creating a giant network between smart things (and people) exchanging data at extraordinary speed, expanded bandwidth, low latency, and increased power efficiency.
The energy internet or Smart Grid is an electricity network enabling a two-way flow of electricity and digital data communication enabling to detect, react and pro-act to changes in usage and multiple issues.
Driverless mobility greatly improves safety and also reduces congestion, pollution and emissions. Mobility as a Service applications will leverage the convenient and easy switch between private and shared mobility.
Creating a network of connected smart things will make humankind more efficient, cleaner and more productive than ever. Innovation resulting in more from less will be better for the environment too.
The Dutchhive started in December 2004 by launching a website as an initiative to get in contact with inventors and small startup companies in order to help them with their innovations and the creation of new business. Two years later in January 2006 it was decided to take the next step and register the Dutchhive as a company in Belgium providing services to individuals and companies with innovating technologies, products and/or ideas. At this moment our activities mainly focus on technical software engineering, hardware engineering and consultancy. We are open minded to offer our services also in other areas that expand our expertise and competence.
We love to hear from you. We can be reached using email, phone and/or postal services using the information listed below.
