“Half of being smart is knowing what you are dumb about.” - Solomon Short, writer The first wave of applications for the Internet of Things (IoT) brought much speculation about coming changes in a number of domains. While the first (often quite odd) products were from small start-ups, established companies are now implementing their first products, turning smart mobility, smart factories, and smart agriculture into reality. This next wave requires smart ecosystems as an essential building block. Typically, first prototypes are built quickly – but when advancing to production, unexpected issues from increased complexity can appear. With this topic, we’ll look at what tools are available to smooth development of “smart” applications. What are the best practices in the IoT ecosystem? Throw in some augmented reality, deep learning and drones – what more could you ask for?
