With mindful design and implementation, your IoT investment can serve as the platform re:device integration, business and home, and leverage other Amazon technologies such as Alexa, to provide focused solutions.

In this presentation, we will discuss:

Architecting for Scale — With smart design, your IoT platform can shrink and grow based on need, saving you money in the process
Empowered Customers — Securing your system requires thinking about both the bad guys (hackers) and the good guys (your customers). Your system can be secure while still giving your users flexibility in access and privacy

Intelligent Data — Machine learning thrives on information, making it a natural pairing for voluminous IoT data. Machine learning pushes IoT to transition from reactive to predictive analytics, forecasting future outcomes and cutting through the fog of data.

Alexa Voice Service (AVS) Integration - Newer feature of AWS IoT Core enabling device makers to make any connected device an Alexa Built-in device, reducing cost/complexity in the engineering bill of materials (eBoM) of business and consumer Alexa Built-in devices.

We will open the Zoom meeting at 5:30 for socializing via breakout rooms and start the presentation at 5:50 or so.

We'll send the Zoom details the day before the meeting to registered attendees to avoid zoom-bombing (and we'll post here when we do so). Please verify that the MeetUp account has your correct email.
