Event Details

In the near future, millions to billions of small sensors and actuators will be embedded in real-world objects and connected to the Internet forming the Internet of Things (IoT). The basic premise of the IoT is that everyday objects or devices can sense their environment, collect information, and communicate and interact with each other. The changing nature of smart, connected "things" is disrupting value chains and will force organizations to rethink and retool nearly everything they do internally in order to stay competitive.

For example, progressive cities around the world are using IoT to transform themselves into smart cities, and changing how we live, work, and play. In this talk, Dr. Liang will present the opportunities and challenges of building smart cities with IoT. Dr. Liang will firstly introduce the Internet of Things from a data perspective, its value chain, its potential applications, its opportunities and challenges, and its vision and trend in the future.

Dr. Steve Liang will be visiting Taiwan on invitation by the Ministry of Interior to deliver an IoT workshop at the 15th Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Association (GSDI) World Conference in Taipei. AmCham is honored to have Dr. Liang share his insights with our members during his Taiwan visit.
