IoT Waikato Meetup
Date: Tuesday 17 November 2020
Venue: The Atrium, Hamilton City Campus
This is an opportunity to get together to share and find out what is happening in this space around the Waikato, New Zealand, and globally, including opportunities and challenges.
The event will also include an opportunity to meet and talk with upcoming ICT programme graduates. Students will have their posters on display, and winning posters will be awarded a prize.
There is also an opportunity for two-minute elevator pitches from the audience if you have something to share around how you can help someone or if you need help with an IoT related initiative.
Timothy Young (Smart Access)
Tim will talk about his business Smart Access, and their work collecting data of accessibility features and infrastructure for local government.
He will also talk about his work with assistive technology for Mahi Tika - Equity in Employment, to bridge the digital divide in workplaces for those with disabilities.
Garth Morton (AWS)
“If you knew the state of every Thing and could reason on top of that data... what problems would you solve?"
In this session, Gareth will take a look at what customers are currently doing globally with AWS IoT, how they are empowered to build and improve services, and how IoT is transforming business processes in "smart factories".
Gareth will also dive into an overview of the fundamentals of AWS IoT and the tools and technologies that drive the iterative improvement cycle.
Student Awards for best poster will be presented between speakers.
