Internet of Things Expo and Conference presented by Kaazing – DAY 2
Keynote Speaker – Jonas Jacobi Co-founder of Kaazing
*What is the first step into the IoT world, how do people put a toe in?
*We always say, in the future, everything WILL be connected. How are we going to do it?
*All architectures need to be prepared for huge inputs of data and output of data too. The existing architectures can’t handle it either way, or were designed for smaller amounts of data.
*Efficiency for daily life, for power, for the data, for the employees.
Time, Productivity, Energy
* http Web was designed for “request – response” computing
*ask ourselves, “what is my need? What is the need of my business?” Do we want companies to have data about us from every device? For example, would Samsung just get data from a TV that you purchased, or do they get data from every appliance in your house? To find out what you’re cooking, how often, what you’re watching on TV. How much do we want it reported, packaged and sold for a corporate use.
*cell phones have come a long way, but if could do way more for us —if we would let it.
*phone could be used as a remote control for our lives, it could dock into a car and instantly connect to all the systems of the car
*phone could control lights, all our smart home controls, and surveillance control.
*phone could be a passport, an ID, a credit card, a health monitor, etc.
*The device needs to be fast, connectivity needs to be FAST, instant is what we all expect now and deserve J
* There has to be a lag in adoption because people can’t afford to replace their car every 2 years like we do with phones. Planes can’t be replaced after 2 years, they have to be adapted and accommodated until a brand new plane can be made with IoT.
*So in the auto industry, it is the same that (these days) people don’t replace their cars that often (this is generalized, some people who value a new car every year do still do that!)
* For cars, don’t look to Detroit, look to Silicon Valley. The car is a computer on wheels.
*So, for a car to be owned for 12-20 years, which company is going to maintain the connectivity on this car? The company that made the car? A separate wireless company?
*Design time for cars is long and cars need to be designed so that a software update every so often, improves the functionality of the car as time goes on.
*Data centers too are a HUGE suck on spending because you need twice of what is actually being used on the day to day, and Black Friday surges the system x 3, so LOTS of challenges with data centers.
*We should have less data centers and servers by 2025. We should! But backup is SO important.
*Optimize the data center space that we already have.
