On The Edge of Security
With IoT’s vast global economic and societal significance, this timely presentation will explain and answer security concerns for manufacturers, software platforms, and end-users interested in investing with clarity, adapting to the new norm, while consolidating previously disjointed data for insight, automation, AI, and ML.
IoT is a rapidly growing mix of hardware, firmware, and cloud services with vast global economic and societal significance. IoT theoretically brings together what was disjointed to allow for such outcomes as long-term analytical insight via AI and ML based automation. Though these outcomes are in debatable states of maturity; they are on an irreversible course in an intercommunity of hardware and data that are driving a new world.
