Internet of Things, Get Connected!

Signals are everywhere that Internet of Things (IoT) is the next big thing. Consumer products are getting increasingly connected, healthcare - smarter, and smart city initiatives - larger. It took us twenty years to connect half of mankind by means of the internet. Now, think bigger. There are billions and billions of devices waiting to be connected! Start-ups, leading technology companies and universities are all racing to develop the next connected thing. Now the question is, how connected are you?

Let us take you on an IoT journey, a journey rich of theory as well as industries’ best practices. Get a sneak peek into the world of Formula 1 with Robert Doornbos and see how data insights make the difference, learn how TU Delft is working on ultra-personalized product services or be inspired by how Philips is making lighting smarter.

Why Internet of Things and why now?

Internet of Things can be described as the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with their internal states or the environment (Gartner). Dell, Intel and Nalta consider Internet of Things to be one of the most important IT topics in the upcoming years. Not only is IoT likely to have an impact on every consumer and organization, it will also enable new uses of technology. On October 15th, you will be in the driver’s seat to experience some of the industries’ best practices in the field of IoT.
