RIM, like Palm, did not adapt quickly enough to changing innovations, and as a result, unlike Dai, I believe that in the near future we'll all be saying...
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.
