Google chief executive (CEO) Eric Schmidt has predicted that the Internet as we know it today will disappear in the future.
Schmidt said at the World Economic Forum in Davos that the Internet could become a thing of the past as online connections become ever smarter and personalized thanks to the growth of the Internet of Things.
When quizzed as to his views on the future of the Web, Schmidt said, "I will answer very simply that the Internet will disappear."
"There will be so many IP addresses, so many devices, sensors, things that you are wearing, things that you are interacting with, that you won’t even sense it," Schmidt said, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
"It will be part of your presence all the time. Imagine you walk into a room, and the room is dynamic. And with your permission, and all of that, you are interacting with the things going on in the room."
