I think it's important to let people make their own risk/reward analysis before participating in RFID tagging programs. It will lead to less effective systems, but hopefully maintains some personal liberties. As an engineer, I'm willing to accept a less effective system to maintain some privacy and choice. Think of privacy as being a design input.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
