I think this is the point in the computer's evolution where biology is moore (pun intended :-) ) closely replicated. Massively parallel processing will be the answer and 3D allows this to be done with a reduction in area. The human brain is billions of processors running at a few hertz with massively parallel connections between them. This is where we should be heading
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.
