A half-day conference exploring the barriers to adoption of the Internet of Things in our cities — and how we can overcome them.

As IoT becomes more deeply embedded into our cities and personal lives, it raises a significant number of issues. This event brings together some of the most interesting speakers in the field to delve into some of the difficult topics of using IoT in the city that many others usually overlook – market creation and design patterns.

Market creation for IoT is a significantly difficult issue. Contrary to popular belief, however, the market failure of IoT within cities is often not within the creation of “data markets” or even the effective development of open interfaces and IoT standards. Currently, the most common area of market failure remains at the hardware level.

As the role of technology increases within cities, the role of software and electrical engineers begins to take on new dimensions. How do the techniques used by software engineers create inherent biases in the interpretation of results from IoT systems? Do we run the risk of excluding communities? This event will explore some of these issues and seek to establish how we can overcome them.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Bola Rotibi – Research Director Creative Intellect UK
  • Prof Magnus Boman, KTH and SICS

This event, also part of London Technology Week, will be curated by Catherine Mulligan, Head of Digital Strategy and Economics at Future Cities Catapult.
