March 3rd, 2016 - Libelium: IoT Spartans Challenge: the Battle Starts to Find Best Future Developers

Around 1,200 students registered to compete at The IoT Spartans Challenge, the academic program to identify and give public recognition to the best future IoT developers and Universities

With the aim to cover the educational gap to find future Internet-of-Things developers, Libelium opens the online IoT learning platform, an international contest with 1,200 participants that will battle online to be recognized as the best in the world.

That is why IoT Day is about having coffee and lunch and a chat with someone in your street as that is where you live and that is where washing machines might get connected.

Internet of Things is here to stay and it is equally strong from the bottom (hacking, arduino, open source, diy), the middle ( the sme's that are springing up) and the top (Siemens, Huawei, Bosch, Amazon, Google...). In fact this language no longer describes what is going on. These are indicators that show that we are now in hybrid space, a new ontology, that we can not go back from.

Toward the Seamless Integration of the Physical and Virtual Worlds

Whether in factories, rail and traffic management systems, or decentralized power distribution systems, the trend is toward networking individual devices with entire systems – a process that is based on the integration of the physical world with the virtual world of data. The result is what Siemens calls the Web of Systems. As this process evolves, it will allow Siemens to help its customers to enrich their existing equipment through the advantages of the digital universe without endangering or sacrificing either data protection or intellectual property.

Tomorrow, Senators Fischer, Ayotte, Booker and Schatz are expected to introduce an Internet of Things (IoT) bill entitled Developing Innovation and Growing the Internet of Things Act (DIGIT Act).  The IoT is creating transformational opportunities with the potential to significantly impact the marketplace across numerous sectors from industrial and manufacturing to energy and transportation to retail and smart cities – fueling GDP, creating new jobs, and bolstering the US economy.

Roger Nanney: Internet of Things (IoT) in 2016

The IoT is fundamentally changing how private companies operate, transforming conventional processes into competitive advantages. Private company leaders should stay on top of emerging IoT trends but avoid getting caught up in the hype. Instead, they should focus on how their companies can use these technologies to create value. At the same time, they need to carefully protect the data they’re collecting.
