By Doing this, AMD has become a moving target for intel and its monopoly/money/customer links advantage. little stuff like this matter allot when you are up against intel (intel has been known/caught to play shady).
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.
