@Bernie, a similar point was made at the FTC's IoT workshop earlier this week. Someone said that we're going to have to deal with some security disasters before we even understand the problem well enough to come up with solutions.
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.
