From a world-wide web of pages to a world-wide web of things – interoperability for connected devices
W3C is seeking to unlock the potential of the Internet of Things and reduce its fragmentation. Jeff Jaffe (W3C CEO) will give a keynote at the Industry of Things World USA conference in San Diego on 25 February 2016.
He will explain how W3C is focusing on simplifying application development through a platform of platforms that integrates existing standards to reduce costs and enable open markets of services. W3C is bringing people together to work on the challenges posed by discovery, composition and monetization of services, along with security, privacy and resilience in the face of faults and cyber attacks. Jeff will further explain how W3C is addressing scaling across devices, platforms, and application domains, including the challenges involved in web scale services. He will describe the need for collaboration across industry alliances and standards development organizations and the steps that W3C is taking to achieve this.
We look forward to connecting with the Industrial Internet experts at IoTW USA 2016, to challenge current thinking, share best practices, talk about future developments and latest innovations, and we hope to meet you there. W3C Members will receive a discount on the event ticket price.
