ASME 2016 IoT Connect, the Internet of Things Intelligent Hardware Conference, will take place on June 20-21 and be held at the Santa Clara Marriott.
This conference brings together manufacturers, system architects, researchers, and industry leaders to explore IoT hardware from the component to the system level. Expect to learn how to optimize the IoT devices for wearable devices, automotive systems, and high performance computers and data centers that enable the next generation needs for diverse intelligent applications such as biomedical computation and smart cities.
ISPS and IPW programs are included in the registration.
Internet of Things (IoT): A world of intelligent devices that have the ability to autonomously respond to the dynamic environments in which they operate.
The convergence of connectivity, bandwidth, and technology improvements is rapidly expanding entertainment distribution to the living room, mobile, and beyond. Broadband, Wi-Fi and Mobile networks are now poised to leapfrog traditional distribution mechanisms, because of the rapid pace of innovation and ability to upgrade with a software download. The concept of this conference is to explore the new and the future in the context of the emerging technologies for delivering a compelling connected entertainment experience.
