WHAT IS INTERNET OF THINGS (IoT) AND WHY IS IT RELEVANT TO OUR LIVES?
Internet of things promises to innovate customer experience by allowing objects embedded with communications technology to transfer data over a network, helping them “communicate” with each other. For example, car sensors can notify the driver if the vehicle’s condition is alarmingly dangerous; a washing machine’s status can be accessed via Wi-Fi; and your package or delivery can be tracked anywhere in the world in real time.
To put it simply, we will be able to communicate with all sorts of devices as long as they are connected to the internet.
With the continuous rise of the tech industry in the Philippines, major companies and start-ups are catching on the new revolution that this type of platform has to offer. The IOT Summit aims to drive more opportunities to this unceasing movement of IoT in the country, as well as prepare the industry and community in the foreseeable future, where most devices will also take part to this one of a kind technology.
The Internet of Things Summit Philippines 2016 is happening on March 4-5, 2016 at the Megatrade Hall 3, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong, Philippines. The event is organized by Econnext Ideas and Media and Red Wizard Events Management in partnership with DOST-ICTO and supported by Smart Communications, Smart Devnet, and PLDT Innolab with MTTagorda Management Consulting and American Technologies.
