Topic:  “Smart Homes”, “Smart Offices”, “Smart Cities”, and the Internet of Things (IoT)

Do you live in a “smart home”, work in a “smart office”, or reside in a “smart city”?

Most of us do.

A simple definition of a “smart home” is a home that is equipped with devices that automate tasks. Similarly, a “smart office” is an office that uses technology to improve the productivity of its workers and a “Smart City” is city that uses technology to improve operations and run more efficiently.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a set of technologies that enables “smart” homes, offices, and cities as well as a vast array of other services.

In tonight’s talk, Dr. Larry Dribin will take us on a journey to explore the Internet of Things (IoT); how IoT enables “smart homes”, “smart offices” and “smart cities” and how IoT can also enable a variety of security challenges as well.
