I don't believe that anyone is talking about Intel shutting down any fabs. This is just some speculation that Intel will not immediately upgrade Fab 24 in Ireland to 22-nm (which the company never publicly said it planned to do).
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.
