IoT: Smart Innovation for Vibrant Ecosystems
“We are literally moving this global work on IoT forward in our collaboration on emerging technologies such as 5G, software-defined IoT, and networked control for cyber-physical systems, as well as the unique applications of the IoT, including the Social Internet of Things, and the IoT as the driver for the co-created smart city. Hot button issues including standards, user-centric security and privacy, and ethics also figure prominently in the WF-IoT program.”
– Geoff Mulligan, WF-IoT 2016 General Chair
