Idea Workshop - Changing Society through the Sensor Cloud

2015-11-7 (Sat) 10:00 - 17:00

Today, the Internet of Things (IoT) is about to change the world.
Simply by the various things surrounding you connecting to the internet, our lives are quietly and dramatically about to change. Gathering particular attention even within the IoT is the sensor cloud. The sensor connects to the internet, and through utilizing data through use of big data, it may change our society. In this workshop, after taking a lecture about IoT and the senor cloud, we'll create ideas about sensor clouds using actual sensor technology (ultraviolet sensors). The best ideas have a chance of practical realization! We'll learn about IoT and the sensor cloud under the guidance of IT engineers and sensor developers, while creating ideas that will lead to practical use.
There is no need for any prior knowledge, and those with an interest in this subject, regardless of field, are invited to attend.
