Or is it a bad thing that attempts to preserve work at levels of pay for which there is little demand while discouraging investment in France that could have created alternative jobs?
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.
