Deconstructing the Internet of Things


James joined Sunderland Software City for a session on "Deconstructing the Internet of Things".

This was a distributed event, live-linked with four other cities via the Cisco National Virtual Incubator- high-speed conferencing.

Presentations highlights included:

  • One from the creators of Little Printer- considering how people approach 'connected by default' devices, and how we might need to refine language for inter-device and to-human communication.
  • David Burdon presented Datascape, a tool for mapping datasets to a virtual environment for exploration and pattern spotting.

James gave an impromptu overview of June's Sparks North-East event.

Here is the full itinerary of the meeting.
