Technologies That Matter: Internet of Things, Opportunities and Risks

Free Registrations period has ended.

The MIT Enterprise Forum Greece and the MIT Club of Greece invite you to join the upcoming event "Internet of Things: Opportunities and Risks" on February 17, 2015, at 19:00 at the Eugenides Foundation.

Recently everybody is talking about the Internet of Things era, the countless connected sensors and intelligent devices that are springing up everywhere and re-shaping our living and working environment. The IoT will possibly be the next technological revolution that we will all participate in, one way or another. The IoT is expected to make our world more intelligent and responsive, capable of anticipating our needs. The digital and physical worlds will come much closer to one another forming a web of “enchanted objects” as David Rose, MIT Media Lab visiting scientists, calls them in his new book. Our goal is to explore the intriguing world of IoT and the exciting business and research opportunities for Greek researchers and entrepreneurs.

The event program will include presentations from our panel of experts who will share experiences from their work and discuss cutting edge research in the realm of the Internet of Things, giving the audience an overview of the opportunities and the risks it creates.
