About the event
The Internet Of Things (IoT) describes a group of physical devices capable of connecting with other devices over the Internet. Increasingly, a lot of devices we interact with day-to-day are getting "smart" and "connected". Not just Alexa and Google Home, but things like doorbells, thermostats, light switches and light bulbs, larger applicances like fridges and ovens among others! As more and more devices in our life get connected to the internet, many questions emerge. What are the advantages and future possibilities in this connected world? Equally important, what are the concerns for our privacy and security?
In addition to IoT in the consumer space, it is also widely used in the industrial and commercial space. What are some of the applications in that space and lessons learned ? And where does Artifical Intelligence (AI) fit in ? How smart are the these "smart" devices, really ?
If you're curious about these or other questions related to IoT - this event is for you. Kids 8+ are welcome to attend.
