This Week in Internet of Things News

Hear about a unique tech-savvy hotel later this month. Wi-Fi 6 is on the horizon and could facilitate more IoT. The IoT seems like good news for healthcare and manufacturing. And Penn State students have a solution for IoT cybersecurity.

Join Intel at Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo 2019

There’s a good reason to join Intel in Orlando this month, and that reason isn’t a trip to Disney World (although that could be fun). Instead, you can attend the Gartner IT Symposium from October 20–24 to hear how The Sinclair Hotel used state-of-the-art Intel IoT technology to create a one-of-a-kind experience.

4 Tech Trends That—When Combined With IoT—Will Transform Manufacturing

“Think big, start small” and “It’s about the journey, not the destination” might sound like they belong on motivational posters, but they also apply to the IoT in manufacturing. IoT has a lot of potential in this sector, especially when combined with trends like AI, but you do need to have the right mindset (even if it’s a little corny).

The Wireless Technology Trends That Are Fuelling New IoT Applications

If you squint at the horizon, can you see an IoT market shifting toward Wi-Fi 6? A worldwide market study by ABI Research suggests its visible if you look closely. As chipset availability for 802.11ah increases, IoT applications will likely also grow. So grab your sunglasses and keep an eye on the horizon.

How the Internet of Things Is Impacting Healthcare

Bacon makes everything better, right? Well, the IoT is a little like bacon, but for healthcare. It’s helping with real-time patient monitoring, data analysis, research, and more. It may not make you want breakfast food, but it has the potential to make medical care a more pleasant experience.

Penn State Students Say They Can Improve IoT Device Security

Are you worried about cyberattacks on your smart TV, home video camera, or baby monitor? (If your response is “Well, I am NOW,” apologies.) Students at Penn State have developed a multi-pronged approach to averting these attacks that includes statistical data and machine learning, so you can rest easier at night.
