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; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_of_things]
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.
