2018 August Tech Talk:
The Internet of Things

Friday August 3,  2018. 1pm - 2pm (3:00 pm – 5:00 pm AEST)
ECU Joondalup Library 31.447

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to inter-operate within the existing Internet infrastructure. [From Wikipedia;]

The IoTs promises to reshape industries and bring immense value to our lives. We have seen applications in smart home, wareables, smart city, smart farming, smart supply chain, etc. This event will feature talks on either IoT platforms or applications.


1. Arkady Zaslavsky, Senior Principal Research Scientist, CSIRO

About the Organisers

Australian Research Data Commons (ardc): ANDS, NeCTAR, and RDS Nodes - QCIF, Intersect, NCI, TPAC, VICNode, eRSA and Pawsey have joined forces to organise a monthly Tech Talk virtual and face-to-face meeting. The Tech Talks are a monthly community gathering to showcase uses and discuss the technical side of Australia's research infrastructure.

Who should come along?

The general purpose of this virtual plus face-to-face meeting is twofold:

  1. Provide a national forum for developers working with research data and/or research data management to discuss topics of interest
  2. Enable a dialogue between developers and NCRIS facilities

This event is for anyone who wants to know more about tech aspects of data and NCRIS facilities:

  • developers
  • data scientists
  • researchers who are building data tools
  • data technologists
  • data librarians
