This fact will worry you. IBM was looking at WATSON to deterime how they could use it to advance medical research capabilities. IBM survyed doctors to determine their reading habits. It determine that less than 5% of the doctors read published documents in their field on a continuing basis. Plug that into the fact that 50% of all doctors are below average.
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
