Dear Data Bees,
Hive India Big Data Think Tank in partnership with Intel Corporation bring to you a unique event to meet some of our brightest minds who are shaping the Internet of Things world. Pervasive connectivity, smart devices and demand for data means that the Internet of Things is growing by leaps and bounds. Computing power is dropping in price, new sensors are being developed, and as people buy into IOT Technology, economies of scale lend themselves to the creation of even more data-centric businesses. Instrumentation and connecting devices has massive potential to deliver value, but companies need to think different and think fast about rolling out the next generation of self-reporting and intelligent devices, platforms and applications. Startups are finding niche solutions that complement the products which big giants like Cisco, Google, General Electric, Siemens, Bosch, Microsoft, and so on have envisioned and created. Come hear how three bold and inventive thinkers are re-imagining the world of IOT in the Silicon Valley and in India.
The event will start at 10 am on August 9th 2014 and end at 1 pm after which lunch will be served. Entry to the event is FREE and exclusively by invite only. Come join us!
