Please join us on St. Patrick’s Day for a journey into the rapidly evolving world of the Internet of Things (IoT) where we will attempt to wrap our heads around the subject and get a glimpse into its effect on our future. How much will this IoT journey benefit our lives and how much may it hurt? The keynote speaker, Massoud Jourabchi, Northwest Power Council’s manager of economic analysis, will be on hand to help start untangling the what, when, where, why, and how of IoT and provide perspective on what 20 billion connected devices by the year 2020 might look like. We then will be diving a bit deeper into IoT technology, where it will live (everywhere perhaps), and how it will change the energy efficiency game. We will be discussing IoT in building systems - lighting, HVAC and building control systems – down to plug-in devices all controlled from apps that will define a new generation of ‘smart’ residential and commercial living. Finally, we will be discussing the downside of IoT and major concerns from privacy to security.Are you prepared to be more connected than anyone thought possible just 5 years ago? Maybe we should just ask Alexa or Siri? We certainly know it will be an interesting journey and perhaps even a wild ride!
