Description

Presented By McCARTER & ENGLISH ATTORNEYS AT LAW:

From smart homes to smart cities to smart government, artificial intelligence is upending the definition of the Internet of Things. The grandiose long-term vision of smart places is of course full-on interconnectivity. Vehicles will not only talk to each other, but they will also be connected to traffic lights, parking meters, police and parking lots. The link between IoT and AI is about letting computers be smarter — which in turn will improve the quality of life, by making life frictionless and fun.

According to BI Intelligence (http://www.businessinsider.com/intelligence/bi-intelligence-all-access-membership), The Internet of Things (IoT) is disrupting businesses, governments, and consumers and transforming how they interact with the world. Companies are going to spend almost $5 trillion on the IoT in the next five years — and the proliferation of connected devices and the massive increase in data has started an analytical revolution.

IoT is a colossal vision. A journey that will take years to complete. The destination seems clear but how to get there is complex. That’s where AI makes all the difference.

Our events are fun and freewheeling -- a bit edgier and a bit more wild than other tech events -- our attendees can ask questions throughout the panel discussion, there is wine, beer, gourmet sandwiches, pizza, Hint water, gourmet cookies and a smaller fireside chat for people who really want to get into a deep discussion without being videotaped!

There will be 5 panelists- you can read about 4 of them below. Be sure to RSVP with your full name for security reasons (and if you are bringing guests please email me with their full names too!). We can't wait to see you!

1st Panelist: Suz Hinton, Technical Evangelist, Microsoft

Prior to her evangelist role, Suz was a frontend developer for 10+ years for Microsoft. She’s an avid open source contributor, writing and collaborating with libraries relating to topics such as NodeJS robotics, accessibility, and creative coding. Suz is passionate about developer education and specializes in accessibility, internet of things, and cloud computing. She’s currently exploring the fascinating world of machine learning, which she believes will become more and more relevant as a tool for both businesses and individuals. When she’s not coding, she’s probably making more coffee, hanging out at her local East River pier, or taking the NYC subway somewhere for the fun of it.
