Historically, America has never invaded a country that has McDonalds - it's a fact - US Marine quoted on BBC 4
THE INQUIRER and Intel held an Internet of Things (IoT) event in London this week, where we sat down with IT professionals from a range of industry sectors to discuss how the growing thirst for internet-connected devices can be used in business, and how this should be done.
Once the IoT discussion came to a close, we spoke to Karen Lomas, director of the Internet of Things, smart city and buildings at Intel, who discusses the chipmaker's plans in the internet-connected devices market.
Lomas gave us an overview of Intel's push into the wearables market, the firm's quest for acquiring companies that will help it to make its mark in the IoT sector, and the security fears surrounding internet-connected devices. Security was also a hot topic at the roundtable, with Intel arguing that IoT needs its own security model in order to protect user data.
Lomas also discusses what she took away from Wednesday's roundtable, where we heard from the likes of Bosch, the London School of Economics and West Middlesex hospital. µ
