The Internet of things (IoT): concept, applications and real live demo
Presenter: Samad Rostampour
Abstract: The Internet of things (IoT) is comprised of billions of connected devices that use network technology to communicate and interact autonomously with their environment, and it is growing at a breathtaking pace. IoT is not a buzzword anymore as IoT applications are increasingly available in various domains such as manufacturing (i.e., Industry 4.0), healthcare, retail, smart homes, smart cities, etc.
Since different technological designs can be envisioned for a single application, there is a need for practitioners to develop a better understanding of the technological options available on the IoT market and determine which technologies are best suited for their needs.
In this seminar, I will first clarify what is IoT. Then, I will discuss the technological and business requirements of an IoT project. Finally, I will present a real demo of an IoT application – from concept to reality.
On Wednesday, November 14th, we will be hosting our annual Bridge Building Competition. If you are interested in participating, please read our rules and sign up today. There are cash prizes to be won in several categories. Find out more.
