OK, off to the show floor!

 

Author

Interesting that there were no product announcements.

Blogger

Nathan: He went to the extreme side of keynotes of being an industry statesman not a product pitchman.

Author

they tricky thing is standards: both useful as well as a bane to innovation: are there any standards for IoT in the works?

 

Great read, Rick and everyone, thanks!

Blogger

Intel BayTrail person next to us: Where were the new product annoucements?

Author

Nathan Brookwood next to me: OK if Warren East helped build up mobile, Seagars will work on IoT

Author

Thanks for the commentary, Rick and everyone.

Blogger

Seemed pretty straightforward for a keynote. Any surprises here?

 

That's a wrap. Expo now opening
Staff

OK, no news, none expected.

Author

Segars wrap up: There's a lot of innovation ahead, accelerated as cost and latency goes down. Collaboration is key. "There's a lot of garage activity going on and I can't wait to see what comes next"

Author

Digitized medical records is a big deal--but can't take home easily, like an x-ray--its too BIG to own yourself, have to trust your health care provider.

Blogger

@ R Colin: Yes, developing countries may even drive e-currency.

Author

At the healthcare panel I went to had a more measured response to these pie-in-the-sky digital claims, because it has to do with the apps and the data: what you do with the data after you get it.

Blogger

Your cell phone is even used a "currency" in developing countries.

Blogger

Longer battery life and energy harvesting needed to save energy too.

Blogger

He talks about 1st world problems (heating up your car, using a cell phone to unlock your door) to real problems like over population, transportation, healthcare. Iot can help he says

Blogger

Segars: Tomorrow's cities of 10-20m people will need IoT

Author
Arm is trying to position mbed as an alternative to having in house embedded experience
Staff

Seagrs: "Building IoT is firmly in the category of big, hard problems"

Author

I wonder how much energy will be spent doing all this monitoring to save energy?

 

IoT make realtime use of data so RF skills important too.

Blogger
Add security, cloud computing, mobile apps to that
Staff

@Susan: Yeah those many embedded programmers know what to do with IoT

Author

What are IoT skills: embedded systems programming skills plus IT skills?

Blogger

Needs to be a good way to share "public" data from our devcies, such as predicting a comign earthquake from accelerometer data from other's phones.

Blogger

HP Labs director talked yesterday about big data 3-D visualization projects too...fascinating work

Author

Segars: Xively developed platform to process IoT data as a basis for apps someone else writes

Author

Visualization is a big deal--best way to conceptualize Big Data.

Blogger

Segars: Intellisense.io helping visualize IoT data esp in energy mgt and water use.

Author
I think Google missed the boat to own the IoT. They'll be a player, tho
Staff

HP wanted to create a global sensor net, but Google has a better chance of pulling it off.

Blogger

Segars: Talks IoT in healthcare, transportation, industrial, energy. Big data on remote activities monitored and managed  "Why don't you track everything in every box?" [...with an ARM core ]

Author

With this gathering of data, how long will it be before Google starts to own IoT? There's gotta be a skunksworks within the Googleplex addressing that

96% of companies expect to be using IoT within 3 years. It's coming fast!
Staff

@R. Colin: My data wants you to pay for it ;-)

Author

Rich: One interesting debate is how do we provide, even sell access to instrumented sensor nets.

Author

Yes, the Internet of "us" make us all a little smarter

Blogger

Segars: Living in techland everyone talks about IoT all the time. Study shows globally many companies in many industries going from research to planning phase in IoT.

Author
Good question raised: who own the data.
Staff

IoT video starts with Economist study and ends with an ARM ad. Ugh!

 

Author

It's the Internet of... "us".

 

Economist report said a former Proctor and Gamble exec coined the term IoT in 1999. Blame the shampoo maker!

Author

Segars refers Economist study of IoT ARM commissioned now on arm.com About 3/4 of businesses exploring IoT eg [see Tuesday story on Cisco reorg for IoT]

Author
That report on the IoT is available to download
Staff

This is similar to what the doctors on a mobile panel I saw a few weeks ago were saying: everyone has a smartphone so that is where the medical digital revolution will be, but there's too much data now.

Blogger

Seagars moves on to IoT, leaving the data center discussion to yesterday's keynote from HP.

Author
900 petabytes of mobile data a month even now
Staff

Segars mentions the Linaro forum co-located with #armtechcon here. Lots of fresh sw needed for mobile and clpoud and IoT

Author

Think of how awful it will be if someone steals your phone...

Blogger

Segars is on to the data center, the mega dump of mobile data.

Author

Are we using mobiles for control, or do mobiles control us!

Segars: You smart devcie will be the focal point for interactions with an expanded network of things and the Internet evolves into the....[you guessed it] IoT

Author

Segars: ok to update your facebook page now: "in cool presentation"

Blogger

[More mobile innovations] Segars mentions Proteus ingestible e-pill and patch.

Author

Segars: Has on order August device and app that provides remote access to eLocks. "When you are fed up with your house uest you can deny access." [Laughs]

Author

Susan: I want my smartphone to find me a parking spot at the mall on black friday!

Blogger

Janine: Yeah I can see grandkids buying me a networked health monitor someday. The Internet of me

Author

I guess i need to have an tablet to find a cab now.

Blogger

Segars: Smartphones and tablets at $50 are cheap enough for some govts give to schoolkids.

Author

When I was in college, I always joked that my mother would like to receive the results of a heart rate monitor in her home, so she knew I was still alive! Perhaps I'll get that when my kids go off to college in four or five years...

Blogger

Seagars: We are in the infancy of mobility and what devcies connect to wil change [Yes Rich I hear IoT coming]

Author

Arguably, mobile already has changed how we live.

Blogger

Pix of Newton, Nokia candy bar phones up to today's Galaxy and iPhones

Author

It's almost full. About 60 people

Blogger

Segars: Just as cars continue to evolve (Tesla, Zip cars)  and change how we live, so will mobile

Author

Susan: How many folks in the overflow room?

Author
I think he's going to compare the IoT to the introduction of the car.
Staff

I'm in the overflow room now. Good wifi for free.

Blogger

Seagars: Cars kicked off the benchmarking industry. [Yeah, blame them.] But also created a virtuous circle of innovatipon [OK that's good] And gave birth to fuzzy dice!

Author

Segars mentions his house and the HP garage. He's been living in Silicon Valley six years. Not in Bill and dave's garage.

Author
Like the Return to the Garage theme
Staff

So much for low cost connectivity!

Author

Susan: I bought WiFi from the front row: $12.95 for all day!

Author

Segars on stage: "I've been CEO 4 months and people are asking what will define your tenure...lower cost chips, sw will create a new era of devices and servcies." So the theme is innovation....no surprise!

Author

take good notes, Rick. I have to remain outside to keep the chat going.  No wi fi for me

 

Blogger

I am sitting next to an Intel Bay Trail manager and Nathan Brookwood doing competitive analysis. Holy tablet!

Author

Hey, it's a packed house here but I am in the front row and on Wi-Fi...just about to get started!

Author

Standing in line waiting for keynote
