@JuanP - I also gave the example of the car. Centralization of processing removed long latency communications necessary for things such as direct car control. You would not use a single core for this because of real time constraints and security reasons.
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.
