Beyond Bitcoin: Extending Blockchain to IoT

Session Abstract:

Most people have heard of Bitcoin, and also know that blockchain is one of the underlying concepts behind this cryptocurrency. However, the ability to share information via a shared, trusted distributed network with embedded business logic also has many potential benefits for an IoT deployment. Join this session to hear about blockchain and associated concepts such as smart contracts, and what we, as technologists, should be thinking about as we look to apply these concepts across various IoT use cases.
