Internet of Things DC - Inaugural Meetup

Internet of Things DC is holding its inaugural meetup event at 1776 in Washington DC on Tuesday August 27, 2013.  Doors open at 6:30 PM and the event will start at 7:00 PM. RSVP here on Meetup.com.

Internet of Things DC was formed to bring together the business, technology and investor communities in the Washington DC area who are interested in building and using the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things uses data-driven devices that are networked together to perform useful tasks ranging from home and industrial automation to lifestyle enhancement and much more. It encompasses multiple domains including embedded controllers, sensors and actuators, biomedical devices, compact power sources, wireless networking, mobile and web apps, cloud computing, and large-scale data analytics.

This meetup is a collaborative effort between Internet of Things DC, NOVA Makers/Nova Labs, and Data Innovation DC.

Please join us at this event to kick off what we hope will be a vibrant and collaborative community in the Washington DC area to foster and bring to fruition the Internet of Things vision!

Agenda

6:30 - 7:00 PM Networking, food and drinks

7:00 - 8:30 PM Presentations & demonstrations (details below)

8:30 - 9:00 PM Networking, conversations, demo follow-ups

Speakers

SmartThings. SmartThings is changing the face of home automation, making it easy to connect things in the physical world to the Internet. The cloud-based software platform allows users to install apps into their lives that make the world smarter, more reactive and more enjoyable. SmartThings is building an open platform and embracing the developer and maker communities in a way that will significantly expand the range of applications and devices that will become smart.

Deconstruction - Brendan Robinson, Co-Founder. Deconstruction is bringing the Internet of Things to construction sites to help contractors eliminate the negative impacts of noise, vibration and weather changes by leveraging real time wireless sensors and predictive analytics. Real time sensor readings of temperature, humidity, noise and vibration are transformed through unique data analytics to deliver relevant, real time alerts, advice and predictive analytics in support of the construction superintendent.

U.S Dept. of State - Brian Nordmann, Dir. Office of Verification and Transparency Technologies. Monitoring the elimination of weapons of mass destruction – nuclear, chemical, and biological – requires the use of robust, reliable, innovative monitoring sensors and a ubiquitous monitoring network. Exploring the internet of things -- techniques and practices being developed for tracking agricultural products to market or ensuring your car stays within its warranty’s parameters – may provide us new capabilities to track an individual nuclear warhead throughout its lifecycle or understand the components of a new missile design.

Tandem - Mike McDevitt, CEO. Successfully evolving a new idea from concept to a growing company involves many steps, including capital raises and organizational evolution challenges. Mike will walk through the basic process of effectively navigating a new idea through the investment landscape and provide insights and tips on things like how investors and entrepreneurs find each other, how to approach and talk to an investor, and what investors are looking for.

    Inspiring event! Thanks Greg for a great inaugural meetup.

    The presentation on August 27 was very interesting. Can someone explain the part about making a key to open the wooden box using a 3D printer?

    August 28, 2013

    • Sharon

      Right. If you're worried about your key being stolen (via photo or image representation), kick the problem up to a wider scope and develop a solution. [I'm in a Coursera class "How to Be More Creative" and this is one technique of problem solving.] Then you bring the solution back down to the narrower level. In this case, we make a new type of key-lock system based on electronic encryption.

      August 29, 2013

    • Justin L.

      Sharon, the class sounds fun. At Nova Labs we put the emphasis on actually making things. Ideas are nice, but we believe that through the creative process of building the solution (and often through no other means) one can discover how best to innovate and ask bigger questions like the one Brian discovered through his experimentation. If you like solving problems you'll definitely like solving the 1000s of problems that arise when building something.

    This has the right tone and content. mapping how we can play together to create critical mass of opportunities around DC/MD/VA will be key. the decoupling yet coupling of intelligence discussions, the thinking of about symbiotic relationship between the internet of things and the internet of people (aka the internet of everything) was there for us to see. My company spans HW and SW smartening sensors at the sensor side of things more. We are still navigating through the ecosystem so if you are interesting exploring ideas, send me a note. I shall see many at the next meeting.

    I don't know if this is quite what you have in mind in terms of IoT applications in museums - but you might check out the "Manifest:AR" collective installation that opened at the Corcoran School last nite; here's the webpage link: http://www.corcoran.edu/exhibitions/manifest-ar
