KEYNOTE: Innovation Begins at Home


Andy Stanford-Clark, IBM's Chief Technologist for Smarter Energy, will explain how the Internet of Things converges with his hobby of home automation and his passion for energy saving.

This convergence has led to projects that have helped alleviate energy poverty in social housing, and that are providing new ideas and technologies for the future smart energy grid that will be built from instrumented, interconnected, and intelligent devices.

Fascinating talk from a very enthusiastic speaker.

For me, it also demonstrated how awesome this stuff can be for public information (the ferry tracker) and how downright creepy for private information (i.e. were the housing project members given the chance to opt out and process their data at home?).
