The World's Many IoTs: Which Are the Most Important? The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years. Panelist Bios: Chris Matthieu is the co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, a revolutionary real-time IoT platform recently acquired by Citrix. Octoblu connects things, systems, people and clouds to a global mesh network allowing users to automat... (more)

Keynote @ThingsExpo by @ChrisMatthieu | #IoT #M2M #DigitalTransformation

In his keynote at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Director of IoT Engineering at Citrix and co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, focused on building an IoT platform and company. He provided a behind-the-scenes look at Octoblu's platform, business, and pivots along the way (including the Citrix acquisition of Octoblu).

The Five Jobs Robots Will Take First | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #MachineLearning

Oxford University researchers have estimated that 47 percent of U.S. jobs could be automated within the next two decades. But which ones will robots take first? First, we should define “robots” (for this article only) as technologies, such as machine learning algorithms running on purpose-built computer platforms, that have been trained to perform tasks that currently require humans to perform. With this in mind, let’s think about what you’ll do after white-collar work. Oh, and I do have a solution for the short term that will make you the last to lose your job to a robot, but I’m saving it for the end of the article. 1 – Middle Management If your main job function is taking a number from one box in Excel and putting it in another box in Excel and writing a narrative about how the number got from place to place, robots are knocking at your door. Any job where you... (more)

What to Expect in 2017: Mobile Device Security | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #Mobile

We are mobile, our devices are mobile, the networks we connect to are mobile and the applications we access are mobile. Mobility, in all its iterations, is a huge enabler and concern for enterprises and it’ll only get worse as we start wearing our connected clothing to the office. If the last 10 years wasn’t warning enough, 2017 will be a huge year for mobile…again. Every year, it seems, new security opportunities, challenges and questions surround the mobile landscape. And now it encompasses more than just the device that causes phantom vibration syndrome, it now involves the dizzying array of sensors, devices and automatons in our households, offices and municipalities. Mobile has infiltrated our society and our bodies along with it. So the security stakes are high. The more we become one with our mobile devices, the more they become targets. It holds our most pr...

The Five Jobs Robots Will Take Last | @ThingsExpo #AI #ML #IoT #M2M

Last week, I compiled a list of the 5 jobs robots will take first. Today, let’s have a go at the 5 jobs robots will take last. For this article only, let’s define “robots” as technologies, such as machine learning algorithms running on purpose-built computer platforms, that have been trained to perform tasks that currently require humans to perform. Understanding How Humans Work Almost every human job requires us to perform some combination of the following four basic types of tasks: Manual repetitive (predictable) Manual nonrepetitive (not predictable) Cognitive repetitive (predictable) Cognitive nonrepetitive (not predictable) For example, an assembly line worker performs mostly manual repetitive tasks which, depending on complexity and a cost/benefit analysis, can be automated. A CEO of a major multinational conglomerate performs mostly cognitive nonrepetitive task... (more)

Cross-Protocol M2M IoT Communications by Chris Matthieu Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octoblu solved this problem by building an open source, cross-protocol IoT M2M instant messaging platform utilized by thousands of users and companies to allow disparate devices to communicate seamlessly with each other and other platforms.

Ushering in the #IoT | @ThingsExpo @Luxoft @AndersBrown #BigData #AI #ML

Ushering in the Internet of Insights: Moving from ‘Things' to ‘Decisions' With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if "my IoT is broken." What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience - effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets - people, objects, and spaces - can share information about themselves and their surroundings. And this data can help make better decisions through improved insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Anders Brown, Managing Director, Internet of Things Group at Luxoft, shared a viewp... (more)

The Zombie Apocalypse and Other Cloud Infrastructure Concerns | @CloudExpo #IaaS #Cloud #OpenStack

The Zombie Apocalypse and Other Cloud Infrastructure Concerns By Liz Durst Last month, I returned from an overseas trip to a friend’s wedding to find the zombie apocalypse happening in my neighborhood near downtown San Jose. People of all ages and demographics united together in what looked like strange cult gatherings in public parks, stumbling around the streets of the South Bay with eyes glued to their phones and occasionally yelling something strange like, "OMG I hatched a Nidoking!" Cars would come to abrupt halts in front of me at unexplained times—I half expected a scene from the movie Zombieland to unfold where Woody Harrelson would leap out from an SUV ready to give me the nickname Minnesota and help navigate safely back to my parents’ farm. Pokémon Go was released in the US on July 6, 2016. Unless you've been living off the grid in a yurt (in which case yo... (more)
