IoT and Emerging Tech: Presentations
Do you want to develop IoT applications? This talk is aimed to give developers and IoT enthusiasts an overview on getting started and working with Arduinos and Raspberry Pis. It will also cover how to put your project on the cloud. Let me demystify IoT app development and pave a way for you to convert objects into intelligent machines. For example, my coffee machine was an early guinea pig.
When people think “IoT,” their thoughts jump to hardware-based solutions like smarter refrigerators or Nest thermostats in the home. However, in commercial buildings there is already an abundance of existing sensors - what’s missing is sophisticated software to give that infrastructure intelligence. At Building Robotics we use a delightful UX and advanced machine learning to provide a lightweight solution that makes occupants happier and more productive while reducing HVAC energy.
What if rhinos tagged with RFID chips alerted authorities when an animal’s movements violated typical patterns, indicating poaching activity? What if sensors on wells monitored water flow so that governments could repair wells quickly? This talk will present a variety of examples of benefits and challenges faced by nonprofits and their technology partners in leveraging IoT technologies toward solving critical issues in the nonprofit sector.
