Talk Title: “ IoT 2018 : Latest Trends, Recent Developments and New Challenges”
Date: May 17, 2018 (Tuesday) 7:00 - 9:00 pm (Registration starts at 6:30pm)
Venue: ITRI Int’l, 2870 Zanker Rd., Suite #140, San Jose, CA
Come and learn about the Internet of Things.
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the technologies and devices that sense information and communicate it to the Internet or other networks and, in some cases, act on that information. These “smart” devices such as wearable fitness devices and smart phones, are increasingly being used to communicate and process quantities and types of information that have never been captured before and respond automatically to improve industrial processes (Industrial IoT), public services, and the well-being of individual consumers (Consumer IoT).
In this seminar Dr. Kao will first give an IoT overview, followed by recent developments, trends (how it works with other emerging technologies such as (Blockchain, Big Data, 5G and AI); and potential challenges such as privacy, security, safety, standards and economic issues.
