It will be ineteresting to see if such standards add much to the processing overhead. I don't think the "death of 8-bit" issues has come close to being concluded yet, but as more processing overhead gets thrown in, the issue may become moot.
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.
