When the Web first evolved it became dynamic and collaborative, which led to the advent of social media. This became known as “Web 2.0”. Since then it has continued to evolve, and today human-to-machine, and machine-to-machine communication via the Web has finally become a reality.

It is estimated that by 2020 there will be 50 billion connected devices in operation world-wide, commonly referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT), however we also like the term “Web 3.0”.

Industry analysts predict that sales of smart wearable devices will generate $23 billion in revenue, commercial drones $1.5 billion, smart home technology $40-60 billion, and the Industrial IoT, $210 billion!

IOT//EDI (Edinburgh) is a one day conference about connected devices. The aim of the event will be to explore which IoT technologies will most likely have the greatest impact on consumers, business, industry and the environment as well as examine what social, technological, economic, environmental and political issues may arise as a result.

Attendees will hear domain experts discuss their views across a wide range of sectors from oil and gas, agriculture, environmental and conservation, logistics, health and fitness, fashion, home security and automation, transport and much more.
