WCA CenterStage presents: What Do We Mean By "IoT"?

September 11th 2014, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Venue: Cadence Design Systems, Bldg 10, 2655 Seely Ave, CA 95134
Cost: $20 through August 31st, $30 afterwards. Refreshments will be provided.

In the past year the terms "IoT" (Internet of Things) and "IoE" (Internet of Everything) have become the topic of much discussion. Apple and Google both mentioned it during their large annual conferences, Intel will feature IoT during this year's IDF, and there have been several IoT technology challenges (some with substantial prize money) in the past few months, and standards coalitions are forming. Yet what do we mean by "IoT" and "IoE"? How do they relate to "M2M" (Machine to Machine), "CPS" (Cyber-Physical Systems), and "Pervasive Computing"? This event will convene a panel of experts to define the technologies and opportunities in this emerging field.

About The WCA

Founded in 1993, the Wireless Communications Alliance (aka "WCA") is a Silicon Valley-based, all-volunteer, non-profit corporation dedicated to providing opportunities for education, connection, and community in the wireless industry. The WCA accomplishes these goals by hosting seminars/panels; providing networking opportunities; encouraging and supporting start-ups and entrepreneurs; and helping to build and maintain bridges between business and academia. Supporting academia and technical education is a primary goal of the WCA. Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, the WCA is near several world-class universities, colleges, and think tanks. Despite the meteoric rise in mobile technology, research has shown that only 5% of incoming college freshmen identify wireless as a career goal. To help ensure a strong talent pool in the coming decade the WCA invites college students to attend our events at no charge in the hopes that exposure to the wireless industry will encourage the them to shift their major and course focus towards wireless.
