IOT at the Austin Forum on Tues, July 11
Connected appliances, connected devices and connected objects will become omnipresent in the coming years. Learn more about this trend at the Austin Forum at 6:15 pm on Tuesday, July 11 in a presentation titled “The Internet of Things: What It Is and How it Will Change Our Lives.”
The speaker for the July 11 event is Rhonda Dirvin, who is the Director of IOT and Embedded at ARM. She currently drives the company’s marketing strategy through the lens of IOT vertical markets and is a Founding Board member of the OpenFog Consortium. An experienced electronics-industry veteran, Dirvin previously spent 17 years with Motorola Semiconductor.
Her talk will cover how the world will have tens of billions of connected devices in 2020; more importantly, these devices will be programmed to work with each other transparently, without much (or any) user action. Autonomous cars will become the norm, but so will autonomous everything. She will explain the technical challenges that must (and will) be overcome to make ubiquitous IOT a reality, and the ways in which IOT will change our lives as much as the mainframe, the personal computer, or the smartphone.
RSVP now to attend! Doors will open at 5:45 pm at Galvanize (119 Nueces St). SXSW is a co-sponsor of the Austin Forum, which means that we will give away a free 2018 badge at the July 11 event. Bring a great IOT-related question for Rhonda Dirvin and you could be the winner!
