Maybe I'm an old fossil but I think this is all hot air. Most people don't care. A few years ago, this was a hot topic. At the time I read a book (I think it was SF) and the misguided author used s/he throughout to be politically correct. It was a torture to read. Remember the uproar over the term master/slave as used in computing? I thought engineers were above such silliness.
God/Goddess help us if "they" ever learn about male/female connectors.
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.
