"IoT: A Connected World,” the name of the Summit, will bring together industry execs, utility experts and “Smart City” leaders to discuss the future of doing business in a networked economy
 
On Thursday June 1, from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m, EPIcenter will host IoT: A Connected World – a Summit that will bring together industry executives, utility experts, “Smart City” leaders, business and technology experts and communications gurus for a crash course in the Internet of Things (IoT).  The Summit will be held at The Pearl Stable and Tickets are $30 per person.
 
The "Internet of things" (IoT) is not just the domain of “techies” any more. It is becoming a frequent topic of conversation since it not only has the potential to impact how we work but also how we live. But what exactly is the "Internet of things" and what impact is it having on our everyday lives? How do we leverage it for the benefit of our businesses? From networked devices to smart cities, IoT is making connectivity to the Internet and machine learning ubiquitous.
 
“EPIcenter is a thought leader and a convener of innovative ideas. The IoT Summit is the first of many hot topics that we will highlight for discussion and learning purposes,” said Kimberly Britton, CEO, EPIcenter. “If you are feeling like you still don’t have a clue and need a crash course in the Internet of Things, this is the place to be.”
 
Keynote speakers for the Summit include: Rep. Will Hurd, US House of Representatives, District 23;                   Dan Rhodes, Chief IoT Fanatic, Deloitte; Jay Sexton, Chief Operating Officer, Center for the Development and Application of Internet of Things Technologies, Georgia Tech.
 
Topics will include: How IoT works. What every business should be thinking about. What Congress is thinking about IoT? What are the benefits and challenges?  What it means for San Antonio and what it means for businesses. Several innovative IoT technologies will be showcased.
