Mark Weiser wrote in 1991 "The most profound technologies are those that disappear. They weave themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it."

Other tech leaders have echoed similar words talking of how the next wave of technology will leverage a complex ecosystem of seamlessly invisible sensors that will provide information to enhance our lifestyle. So 25 years later, what is this IoT lifestyle? How do smart homes, smart cars, smart offices provide this high-level intelligence that will enable the IoT lifestyle that was imagined by so many futurists.

Attendees takeaways will include:

  • Understand the latest use cases of how sense technology will touch the consumer in their day to day lives
  • Understand the ecosystems that are need to create high-level intelligence
  • Market trends and technology trends that will impact IoT intelligence
