About our presentation topic:
Internet of Things (IoT) is more than a network of “things” that can sense and interact with their internal state or external environment. It is an ecosystem that includes communications, data, applications, and analytics…. and unlike previous technologies, it will impact the daily lives of all citizens: will soon see that sensors are practically in everything.
IoT platforms provide the capability to manage endpoints and the data they generate. The next frontier is the world where machines compete with people to perform activities including the development of actionable information from all the data that’s being collected. Are you ready for that transformation? Will you compete with or compliment artificial intelligence? What skills are needed to be a part of this growing industry?
