We are talking of claims of $2,5 billion and a lot more at stake for the whole electronics industry regards stiffling innovation with patents that outlive the technology, so it is reasonable that the courts appoint people familiar with patent law to fight patent battles. To exclude prior art that invalidates Apples claims to originality is absurd, no matter how late presented. In fact, the design patents should now be invalidated with publicly available prior art.
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.
