    Industry of Things World USA 2016

    San Diego, USA

    Industry of Things World USA 2016 is a two-day conference of learning and networking with the elite of the Industrial Internet scene.

    Jeff Jaffe, W3C CEO, will give a keynote "From a world-wide web of pages to a world-wide web of things – interoperability for connected devices".

    He will talk about:

    • Today’s challenge: IoT approaches are characterized by data silos leading to high cost, lack of interoperability and reuse.
    • How can standardized semantics make a difference in discovery, interoperability, scaling and layering?
    • Examples of how a new breed of servers that run on microcontrollers to cloud based server farms, with security by design, and applications decoupled from the protocols will play a big role in the future of connected devices.
