I certainly like Mr. Pistorio's attitude in approaching the topic of sustainability -the statement "The world has developed high imbalances," ...citing public debt, population explosions in developing nations ...rising number of environmental issues... -certainly hits some key points.
It is scary to think that the resources consumed in N. America (not to mention the garbage created) far exceeds those of China & India combined! According to some estimates, the wealthiest 20 percent of the world's population for consuming 80 percent of the goods and services produced from the earth's resources. Though this number is dated, recent numbers still outweigh those of the less affluent populations.
Thanks for the comments everyone. Pistorio is a pretty inspiring person. His track record as a CEO speaks for itself, but you can't help but admire his social consciousness and charity work. His Pistorio Foundation now supports 1,660 underprivileged kids. As he put it, that may seem like a relatively small number when you think about all the needy children in the world, but to those 1,660 the foundation's support makes a huge difference.
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.
