Everyone is saying IoT is the next mega trend. This panel will explore new systems of connectivity, creative applications, challenges on the road ahead and how the IoT can make a difference in the world.
Pierre Roux has an IC design engineering background, and has been dedicated for years to bridging Atmel technologies to the Maker and Arduino communities in the embedded space. He understands the necessity to develop a simple solution for complex standards from the edge node to cloud services, and is an advocate for enabling the Maker community to define the next big IoT applications.
Paul Rothman is a designer, artist, and maker working in the fields of electronics and interactive design. Studying at NYU, he received a Bachelors in Music Technology and a Masters from ITP-NYU. An early collaborator on littleBits, he is currently the Director of R&D at littleBits Electronics.
Alasdair Allan is a Scientist, Author, Hacker and Tinkerer, who is currently thinking hard about how to fix the Internet of Things which he thinks is broken. He is the author of a number of books, and from time to time he also stands in front of cameras. You can often find him at conferences talking about interesting things, or deploying sensors to measure them. Last year he rolled out a mesh network of five hundred sensors motes covering the entire of Moscone West during Google I/O. He's still recovering.
Dominic is Director IoT Segments, ARM. He started as a CPU engineer. Later he took the ARM Cortex-M0 Processor from product concept to launch - it’s now at the heart of millions of microcontrollers, low–power radios and smart sensor devices. Dominic holds a PhD in Computer Science from University of Leeds, UK.
Andrew is computer programmer with an interest in electronics design. Originally from Grand Rapids, MI, He studied computer engineering at CWRU and subsequently worked at software development firm Atomic Object. Currently, He is CTO at Pebble.
