Tech It Out
June 6, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm at Villanova University
This year’s Tech It Out will provide an overview of the Internet of Things (IoT). What is IoT and what are smart devices or connected devices? What is the story behind all of the network connected devices and sensors now in our homes and buildings, worn on our bodies, monitoring our health and embedded in our cars? What data is being collected and what is learned from this data? How do we secure these networked devices and protect our data? We will have speakers from both inside and outside of our industry talking about current applications of IoT and future visions. The event will include demos, speakers and presentations from key innovators, researchers and vendors, students and interns, a panel discussion, and breakout sessions with lots of opportunities for Q&A and networking.
Join us for the day at the Villanova University Connelly Center in Villanova, PA.
WICT strongly encourages participation from local high school, college students and interns interested in STEM to promote careers in our industry.
A Sponsor Showcase will be part of TIO again this year highlighting the many companies who sponsor the WICT Greater Philadelphia Chapter.
