The Internet of Things
About the event:
The Internet has transformed our lives beyond recognition in the two decades since the term “world wide web” first emerged. However, the current internet and our means of interacting with it are, in developmental terms, relatively primitive. The emerging Internet of Things – where embedded systems will allow not just computers but also people, objects, structures, vehicles and machines to autonomously communicate on the Internet – will lead to transformations far beyond those brought about by the current Internet.
For all the engineering disciplines, the Internet of Things will be a true engineering tool for finegrain observation and control and will provide unprecedented opportunities for engineering innovation.
This lecture will focus on the Internet of Things, the technologies that are being put in place to build it, the impact it will have on its users and the opportunities it offers for innovation.
