I agree the entiee news media--us included--are being sucked into a feeding frenzy of coverage on the hunch a new category of products may be emerging in mobile consumer systems, a frenzy that benefits Apple most of all.
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.
