Details

The Internet of Things and the Internet of Everything (people, processes, data and things) is now about connecting the unconnected.

We tend to think of the Internet being everywhere but a staggering 99.8% of the world is still unconnected.

As a joint IX Liverpool (http://www.ixliverpool.net) and Sensor City (http://www.sensorcity.co.uk) event, Prof. Matt Wilson (http://www.mattwilson.co.uk) from Telecoms Cloud (https://www.telecomscloud.com)presents a range of new opportunities to connect the unconnected while creating value by improving operational efficiency and improving customer experiences for businesses.

Such devices include IP Cameras, Energy Grids, Heathcare Facilities, security systems , utilities, manufacturing, plants, cities, mining and transportation systems that be controlled from virtually anywhere in the world.

While this talk will focus on the benefits of connecting such devices, there will be a Q&A/debate at the end of the session to discuss what devices should not be connected and the reasons why.

By the end of this event, you should learn about:

• The purpose of connecting everyday objects that are currently unconnected

• The Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats by connecting "everything" to the Internet

• A review of the technology on the market, for both consumers and businesses, and what is around the corner

• How you can get involved, learn and discover more about the Internet of Things as a future career

Places are limited, please book early!
