@Max: Your blurb on "Wake Up & Smell The Bagels..." rings to so true to me personally! I grew up to adulthood with no TV or refrigerator in my house back in India! We read a lot those days and always had freshly-cooked food!
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.
