I still don't fully how the Thunderbolt can be beneficial when it is used as display, can a higher speed really help? In what aspect it helps? I don't see any problem with external display with the exsiting DVI connection. Will the macbook consume more energy when it is connected to the Thunderbolt peripheral?
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
