Two market dynamics promise to have an equally significant impact on the way we live, work and play: the Internet of Things and the Internet of People. In the realm of the Internet of People, ad-tech companies have led the way, pushing the limits of scale while managing billions of objects and terabytes of data with millisecond response times. But when you have to scale from serving hundreds of millions of people to billions of things, what are the opportunities and challenges that arise? What are the similarities and differences? What technologies can be reused, and what problems still remain to be solved? Marie-Anne Neimat will moderate a lively panel of experts as they define the Internet of Things vs. the Internet of People, examine what companies are trying to do and why, explore the various tech options that can support these use cases, and discuss the challenges and tips in implementation.
