Event: When The Internet of Things Goes Wrong

On Tuesday 11th July, our Managing Director, Gethin Roberts, will be talking at the International Institute for Product and Service Innovation (IIPSI), which is part of The University of Warwick. The light hearted Internet of Things (IoT) event will look at when things go wrong and what to avoid when developing such products, as well as speculating about what may happen in the future.

Definitions as to what IoT actually is vary considerably, but its foundation could be considered to be connecting everyday physical ‘Things’ to the Internet. The data from Things can then be shared. Existing Things will need to be hooked up to the Internet. New Things will be required. New data clouds will proliferate. New services and business models can be formed. Nobody quite knows where it will go but elements of this are already happening. You can monitor your home, your health and your pets today. Industry is tracking goods, vehicles and communities.
