Some of the most visited lectures were: Industrial IoT & Smart City, The orchestrator of a smarter world, Small startup, big impact in IoT etc.
Simply put, this is a concept of basically connecting any device with an on and off switch to the Internet. This includes everything from cellphones, coffee makers, washing machines, lamps and almost anything else you can think of.
IoT is huge innovation that „feeds“ modern companies, so our local firms should follow this trend. IoT systems are connecting traditional products with wider eco-system and are unlocking new innovative trends.
Smart and favorable „Things“ create opportunities for new business developments that were unimaginable just few years ago.
There are on going discussions how IoT will influence our lives in the world about IoT. We are also trying to understand opportunities and challenges, as the number of IoT devices grows. The best thing for now is to educate yourself about what is actually IoT and what benefits IoT brings.
Domagoj Šimecki from Tele 2 IoT, company that develops IoT on a global level, in interview with Akta.ba says that this trend found its way in BiH through GPS systems, as well as in field of energy and cash register. He hopes that this trend will expand in other areas, for instance developing smart city's and smart roads. „As other industry's start to develop, IoT will follow“, says he adding that IoT brings innovation, efficiency, savings and new models.
At the end of the conference we had a video link with Nebojša Stanojević, who leads International Synergy Moon - Coalition of Dreams team, that plans to land rover on the Moon, part of the Google Lunar XPRIZE competition. We made a deal to launch Bosnian satellite as well.
