Developing & Tech in the IoT – Day 1

“What’s the best way to build “Internet of Things software” that could do anything from control home appliances remotely, to inform an aero-engine manufacturer that one of its engines somewhere in the world needs servicing, to gather meteorological data from sensors to produce a weather forecast? What skills are needed to do so? Where do you even begin?” – CIO.com

Day One of the Developing & Tech in the IoT agenda will explore the evolving technology available to developers looking to create IoT products and software. Reviewing platforms and frameworks for development, hardware and connectivity options and also the tools needed to create products and applications for the IoT.

Internet of Things is going past smart devices to intelligent machines that are applying learning algorithms to vast volumes of IoT data. Robots can be self driving cars and tractors or become tiny nanobots that swarm our bodies to cure diseases. Drones swim with Dolphins or look for oil pipe leaks saving scuba drivers. Bots are replacing repetitive human tasks such as scheduling, shopping and robo-trading.  Welcome to the world of Robots, Drones and Bots.

Come hear from Sudha Jamthe about the next wave of IoT Disruptions and how this is leading to growth in Robots, Drones and Bot to a new world of business opportunities to the promised $16 Trillion from IoT.

With expectations for between 50 and 200 billion connected devices worldwide by 2020, the global Internet of Things market is predicted to expand at a compound annual growth rate of over 31%, exceeding $9T by the 2020 milestone. GE estimates the Industrial Internet could add $10-15T to global GDP over the next 20 years. Gartner predicts there will be 250 million connected vehicles on the road by 2020. Navigant predicts that the worldwide installed base of smart meters will grow from over 300 million today to more than 1 billion by 2022. IDC predicts that the wearable connected fitness device market will grow from 45 million units in 2015 to 126 million in 2019. And therein lies the challenge: will there be a globally interoperable Internet of Things (IoT) or will there be isolated Internets of Energy Things, of Transportation Things, of Health Things, and so on? With an estimated 40-60% of IoT value dependent on cross-sector and multi-infrastructure interoperability, this talk will focus on the potential for convergence around a global Internet of Things.
