David Rose is a major speaker on The Internet of Things—the concept where everyday items become “enchanted objects,” able to anticipate our needs, talk with each other, and make life simpler. “In the scrum of talking heads wrestling to gain control of the narrative behind the Internet of Things,” The New York Times writes, “Rose is an engaging, plain-spoken guide.” Rose is an instructor and researcher at the MIT Media Lab, and the author of the preeminent book on the Internet of Things, Enchanted Objects: Design, Human Desire, and the Internet of Things. A serial entrepreneur, Rose is the CEO at Ditto Labs, and was founder and CEO at Vitality, a company that reinvented medication packaging that is now distributed by CVS and Walgreens. He also founded Ambient Devices, which embedded internet information in objects such as lamps, mirrors, and umbrellas. He holds patents for photo sharing, interactive TV, ambient information displays, and medical devices. His work has been featured at the MoMA, and covered in Wired, The Economist, and The Colbert Report.
