The keynote will focus on the next phase of IoT, which will be about adding intelligence to connected things and how these advances will open up vast new opportunities for technology integrators.
“Raw connectivity will be antiquated; all things will be connected to rich sources of intelligence and to one another, creating a powerful global intelligence. IoIT will redefine not only the home, but the way we address some of mankind’s most pressing issues” says Dave.
