Dr. Sokwoo Rhee is Associate Director of Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems at NIST. He was a Presidential Innovation Fellow working on cyber-physical systems and co-led the SmartAmerica Challenge, which brought together cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things technologies and testbeds across the nation to demonstrate how CPS/IoT can boost American competitiveness and provide concrete examples of the socio-economic benefits such as job creation, creating new business opportunities, improving the economy, improving/saving lives, by combining CPS technology created from significant investments made by both the government  and private sector.

    Great seeing everyone last night and thanks for the excellent questions and conversations. Thanks as well to the presenters and PwC for sponsoring the venue and food/bev. Look forward to seeing you at the next event.

    I could not make it to the meet thanks to unthinkable traffic on my way back from PA! I will be looking forward to next meet. For those, I could not meet-we ( Zreyas Technology Inc ) are a IoT company ( I am founder and CTO). We develop custom sensors, Zigbee/Propietary wireless network and IoT analytic over Storm for distributed sensor data. We have near ready platform for some of the IoT areas- highly involved in predictive maintenance, process control and security solution using IoT.

    Again, looks like it was such a bad miss for me.
