You define IoT as more than just physical objects identifying themself in an information exchange? In your definition, what allows the combination of "things" to derive new data, is that done in the cloud (IT Space) in your mind?
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.
