Me, I go right for the dramatic tension and picture a chief marketing officer, an ACLU lawyer, and an NSA analyst who identifies herself only as Susan. Most companies will face a reality that's far less

Imagination and several other vendors—including Broadcom, Qualcomm, Cavium and PMC—have created an open-source consortium that is designed to draw in developers who want to make software that can run on a range of systems powered by MIPS processors.

You may already have heard it mentioned in the media, the latest buzz is a thing called the Internet of Things (IoT). So, what is IoT? In the broader sense it is all Internet connected devices, originally named by Kevin Ashton in 1999, the Internet of Things had been in development for decades before. In the early 80’s programmers at Carnegie Melon

I mean, we live in a world of more than 7 billion people, so if you look at it that way, there isn’t even 1.5 connected devices per person on earth. Now of course that isn’t the way it works because our world doesn’t have that kind of equality. As we know it is probably a fraction of the

Whenever the Internet of Things (IoT) gets mentioned in the press, there is a sense of an awesome monster about to be unleashed on a poor, unsuspecting IT industry. Billions of devices, more big data than we have ever seen (maybe we need to call it bigger data), and computing up the wazoo!

Many of these devices will _ and do _ “talk” to one another via tiny sensors that function almost like human senses, logging information such as temperature, light, motion and sound. Theoretically, the sensors

Contrary to the general approach of creating Internet of Things (IoT) services from a business perspective, the project addresses the design of citizen centered IoT solution. For this, it is required to create new IoT solutions from the citizens' point of view and for the immediate benefit of the citizens without necessarily involving
