This is a familiar story to embedded systems folks. CPU speeds have been growing much more quickly than interconnect speeds, be they for local memory, storage, or remote databases. At some point I think we will need to reexamine the system architecture of a computer itself to decentralize the compute elements across the data instead of building ever-faster roads for the data to get to the CPU.
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.
