Internet of Things: Joint TUANZ/InternetNZ panel

Tuesday 2:20pm - 2:50pm, TUANZ (TUANZ 1 Room)

InternetNZ's NetHui-style sessions and TUANZ bring you a collaborative session on the Internet of Things.

The panel will examine what the Internet of Things (IoT) means in the immediate future when it comes to our everyday lives including:

How will the IoT impact us as we move from home to work, when and where we work, and how we make the most of our leisure time?

How will this also impact on the infrastructures of the future: the telecommunications network as well as others such as roads and property?

Should we call wearables & personal devices IoT at all? Aren't they the Internet of You?
