Tackling the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals with IoT and Analytics

IoT Slam 2020 Session: Tackling the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals with IoT and Analytics

Session Abstract:

It all starts with connecting people, machines, and environmental systems to facilitate communication and the sharing of knowledge. I believe thoughtfully capturing data about the world around us will make the invisible, visible. The unknown will become known. The remote, local. Our ability to digitize and analyze the planet and its ecosystems will help us solve the world’s most challenging problems and achieve many of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
