Prediction is the next big thing. It sounds like Minority Report. Well! If the application is elsewhere like Healthcare, it sounds less bad. The challenge is, for example, what are the information patterns needed to call back a recently discharged patient.
There is no doubt when information is so abundant and when computer becomes so powerful. There've got to be some way to make some sense out of the enormous amount of information, including predicting the future.
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
