Cofounder of LIFX Daniel May to present at "2020: Smart Cities, Zettabyte Data and 200 billion things"

Hi everyone, Some of you will know Daniel May - cofounder of LIFX who successfully sourced funding through KickStarter. As such, I thought the following event might be of interest to the start-up community. No doubt there are plenty of interesting smart city problems to solve with lots of data and some interesting things. Rgds, Peter.

Special executive panellist event "2020: Smart Cities, Zettabyte Data and 200 billion things. What’s next?" Melbourne 3-Sept, 5pm

According to 2014 IDC estimates, there are already more than 50 billion globally connected sensors that can track, monitor and feed data to computerised systems. IDC foreshadows that by 2020 there will be more than 200 billion sensors generating an estimated 10% of data in what will be a 44 Zettabyte (10e21) digital universe. It’s called the Internet of Things. These things will involve millions of applications driving consumer and business behaviour that will support our future smart and sustainable industries, transport, cities, homes and wellbeing. What are these things? How will they be used? How will cities and industry become smarter? What about our privacy and security? Where are the new business opportunities?

This unique panel event of senior executives will discuss the next great digital frontier. With their expert knowledge and experience in big-data, smart cities, advanced broadband networks and smart devices you will have the opportunity to have your questions and the questions above all answered.

The doors for this event will open at 5pm with drinks and refreshments served until the formalities begin. The panel session will run from 5.30 to 6.30pm. At the conclusion of the panel there will be an opportunity for you to continue the discussion with your industry peers over drinks and canapés (all inclusive in the cost) until 8pm.
