@rick merritt "How many of these are Internet connected surveillance cameras?"

IP cameras are not included. Rather this count of smart video devices is counting those that display content.

How many are ACTIVE

One statistic I never see on reporting like this is how many of the devices are actually being used and how many are already in a drawer or the landfill. Are there any statistics on the active usage of the devices like this? What is the average lifetime of them?

Don't know about lifetime, but I have heard estimates of the number of Internet subscriptions that are as high as 7 billion, but of course that counts mobile phones.

Well, I have a laptop, smartphone and tablet so I guess I have three, five if you include my former smartphpone tucked in my desk drawer and the old PC I just took to Goodwill.

By 2017 most of us will likely have a smart TV too, since most of them will have Internet connectivity built in by then. Also if you are like me, when you watch the baseball World Series in the coming weeks, you'll have your tablet running MLB.com on the coffee table as you watch, so you can see the pitch tracker in realtime, and can play back the highlights reels during commercials (which I always mute :)

Chinese Government loves Camera

Chinese government loves those intelligent cameras. That is how they have everyone looked and keep Country "stable". Since all land are owned by government. They could install a camera point your doors, both front & back, if they want. Its "stablization budget" spending already surpassed military expending. It is no doubt the biggest survelliance market in China. Good news for industry and bad news for its people.

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.
