IoTA Belfast is organising an IoT workshop at the upcoming Digital DNA event in Belfast. We’re still putting it together but the theme is on enabling IoT in a civic environment. Belfast smart cities presented a session at the first Belfast IoTA event, we’ve had a lot of positive comment on that topic so we would like to keep this conversation going.
What are the key enablers for a spontaneous outbreak of killer IoT products and services. How many years of investment in infrastructure before the “overnight success” of IoT in our city. The high priority problems of traffic congestion, waste management, energy management, and public health affect us all and we want to see them addressed, but who is going to pay? We know that smart developers will build great apps and services, but they’ll only do that if data, networks and means of monetizing their work are available to them. Uber spent $250M to build a new business model for the taxi business. That’s not a replicable model for many technologically enabled step-changes.
Digital DNA is shaping up to be a great event, please make an effort to come along and be part of the conversation.
