The “People-fication” of Things

Session Abstract:

IoT Slam Virtual Internet of Things Conference Greenwave SystemsIoT is blending into all aspects of our lives, often causing confusion and resistance. To ensure a successful integration, the friction between people and technology must be kept to a minimum. This session will propose a shift in perspective and approach to interacting with “things.” From the latest technology trends emerging at global conferences like CES and MWC to the examining the future and potential possibilities, it is clear that IoT is at the forefront of everyone’s mind. This talk will identify where the market stands, areas for improvement, and where we are truly excelling.

By simply considering a “thing” as a person, or specifically as an employee, a myriad of scenarios involving its lifecycle become clear. This “people-fication” of things will bring about interactions that are more like our interactions with people, allowing our devices to weave into our landscapes like friends and co-workers weave into our lives. Like people, “things” therefore require a hierarchy of needs in order to successfully function and prioritize activities.

The deep industry expertise behind this presentation will provide attendees with a leading edge view and ensure a lively Q&A conclusion. The discussion will apply to a range of technical backgrounds, from beginners to industry experts.
