IoT: Is the Coming Plague of Devices Too Smart?

#sxsw #sxswiot

In the next era of computing, the coming “plague” will bring an elaborate network of devices, sensors and radios that will talk with each other, and collect, store and analyze overwhelming amounts of data. It will deliver computing that is truly personalized and secure; a network that will enable a harmonious interaction between humans, society, and devices. Intel's Tony Salvador will discuss the implications of the connected world that have yet to be explored. For example, with everything from diapers to dishwashers being “connected,” what does this mean for society as a whole? Do we run the risk of losing control and allowing technology to take over lives? Salvador will address how the social fabric of humans and societies will evolve as the Internet of Things becomes a reality. He will explore the benefits and challenges of this new connectivity, including the projected social opportunities, innovations and challenges that consumers can expect, as well as security implications.
