This Week in Internet of Things News

Computer vision at the edge could hold big promise for enterprises, while smart cities could hold big promise for pandemic resiliency and better parking. Meanwhile, the IoT is enabling remote work, remote education, and telehealth. But IT needs to make sure this technology is secure and could learn a few lessons from the sinking of the Titanic.

Intel and AWS Webinar Series: Computer Vision at the Edge

In the first two sessions of our upcoming webinar series about computer vision at the edge, business leaders, IoT experts, and solution architects from Intel and AWS will discuss how you can make computer vision a reality with Intel tech and the right software. Be sure to join us on July 30 and August 6.

The Case for Smart Cities: Can They Be Pandemic Resilient?

What makes a smart city deployment successful? And what role can smart cities play in addressing crises like pandemics? We’ve already seen how the IoT helps overcome many urban challenges, and experts are now discussing the ways IoT technologies might help make smart cities pandemic-resilient in the future.

IoT Eases Parking Stress in Smart Cities

Imagine taking a trip downtown in a big city without needing to circle the block half a dozen times to find a parking spot. This vision of the future may soon be within reach as smart cities look to cameras, sensors, and apps that collect parking data and prevent drivers from circling the block and creating traffic.

How IoT Is Impacting the Digital Workplace and Remote Working

2020: the year remote work went mainstream. A pandemic made it necessary, and in many cases IoT technology made it possible. In fact, remote work, remote education, and telehealth all rely on IoT devices for collaboration, security, and more. And now that we know remote is possible, it’s likely here to stay.

How Lessons Learned From Over a Century Ago Can Help Us Secure Today’s IoT Devices

While at first you might not think IT has much to learn from the sinking of the Titanic, we can actually learn four lessons from this disaster that apply to managing and securing IT operations. One even applies to the IoT: You need to be able to lock down compartments—or in the case of IoT, individual devices—when something goes wrong.
