THE INQUIRER held an Internet of Things (IoT) event in London in May. There, we sat down with IT professionals from a range of industry sectors to discuss how the growing thirst for internet-connected devices can benefit business.
After the event, INQUIRER editor Madeline Bennett and INQUIRER news editor Carly Page talked to some of the attendees, including IT professionals from the West Middlesex Hospital, Kingston University and Pensar, to find out what they were most excited about regarding IoT - and also most concerned about.
Data security and privacy was a popular topic, as well as user identification systems, wearable sensors and the need to balance business benefits versus improvements for individuals.
And the bathroom even got onto the agenda too, with much interest around the possibility of toilets that can diagnose ailments.
