Ron Wilson, Executive Editor of EDN, was also at the debate and filed a good report here: http://www.edn.com/article/CA6656862.html One note, Intel's Simon estimated the market for buying patents at $3.5 billion (not $35 billion), and I would point out that startups such as Transmeta have already used patents as an exit strategy.
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.
