We cover everything that relates to the Internet of Things. If it's connected, we want to hear about it. We are fascinated by the impending "Machine Economy", where machines will become smarter, more intelligent, and eventually fully autonomous. The Internet is transforming from a Social Web to a Machine Web, that we like to call Web 3.0 and it is defined by the convergence of three primary components; IoT, AI & DLT.
We promote conferences, workshops, hardware hackathons, and meetups that relate to IoT, AI, and DLT (Blockchain, DAGs, Hashgraph, Hyperledger, and Cryptocurrency). We think the impending Machine Economy, powered by a global network of autonomous machines, will transform the way we live and work - for the better.
A perfect storm of innovation is finally making the Machine Economy aka "Web 3.0" a reality. Our focus is data decentralisation and machine automation. We help our clients understand and leverage the latest innovations that include Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). To find out more contact us.
Contact us if you'd like WEB3//IOT to cover your conference as an official media partner, or if you'd like your event added for free to our directory. Featured listings and display ads can be purchased for a fee (price is subject to positioning and banner size). WEB3//IOT applies a strict criteria, and only covers events that are relevant to the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, and Distributed Ledger Technology. N.B Events that promote get-rich-quick cypto schemes will be blacklisted!
Dell Technologies is selling a bundled solution, using its Edge Gateway and Arundo Analytics' Edge Agent software, to manage sensor data in some of the most difficult environments, and to identify potential problems and act on that data locally, even without Internet connectivity.
The future factory may not be as far away as you think. Despite the popular image of factories as smoke-filled and uninspiring, beneath this stereotype, real innovation is taking place. Manual production lines are switching to automated assemblies and valuable data is finally being used to discover actionable insights into manufacturing operations, as part of a push towards the Forth Industrial Revolution.
On Friday 30th November I attended the VCT and EIS Investor Forum in London. The event enabled private investors to meet fund managers in person and learn how different VCT and EIS funds compare. The event featured an expo, cinema, exhibition space, and seminar room where talks and panel debates took place throughout the day. Attendees were given the opportunity to gain industry insights and understand what is going on more generally across the entire small-cap equity market landscape.
Rolls-Royce has publicly demonstrated what it calls the “world’s first fully autonomous ferry” on a trip between Parainen and Nauvo in Finland. The British company entered a research partnership with Finnish state-owned Finferries back in May, revealing plans to “optimize ship safety and efficiency” through developing and demonstrating autonomous ferry technologies.
Autonomous trucks made by Volvo will soon be hauling stone out of a Norwegian limestone mine, the car firm has announced. What it’ll deliver: Six autonomous trucks will transport limestone the five-kilometer (three-mile) route through tunnels between a mine owned by local firm Brønnøy Kalk AS and a processing facility at a nearby port.
As we arrive back in the UK following a hugely successful IoT Solutions World Congress event in Barcelona, I wanted to take a few minutes to reflect on the show but also pass on my thoughts on what has been a pretty busy first 3 months for me at IOTech. One of my first roles since joining IOTech as a Solutions Architect was to help put together the EdgeX Foundry Community Demonstrator in time for its first scheduled appearance at the Barcelona event.
Today’s web is pretty much controlled by an oligopoly of tech giants that I will refer to as “GAFAM”. They have grown incredibly rich by hoovering up personal data belonging to billions of people and using it to develop incredibly addictive products. This practice is, in most cases, perfectly legal as it is done with the consent of their users.
Montford's Rule is a new one for our times… “Every time there is a step change in technology it’s heralded as a revolution - now it's real,” he alleges. And Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the key. We are now no longer just looking at the loss of labour to technology that the evanescence of tasks that have for centuries required a high degree of intellect and evaluation. There’s a sense of urgency highlighted by the publication last month of arguably the U.K.'s most focused new industrial strategy to be announced in the past two and a half decades.
ICOs are funding the creation of a new decentralised web (PART I) Once upon a time there was a substance called ether, also known as quintessence, that delighted and baffled medieval scientists for centuries. They postulated that it was a medium used by light to travel through the vacuum of space. It was also thought to be responsible for all kinds of other complex scientific phenomena. At the end of the 19th century, the scientific community collectively disavowed the notion, and concluded that it never existed. Ironic then that ether should, well, disappear into the ether.
After Money: What Happens Next? As technology becomes ever more fundamental to citizens, societies and economies, Simon Montford, the founder of WEB3//IOT visited the After Money money symposium looking at issues from identity and privacy to decentralisation, autonomy and democracy itself.

the MACHINE WEB is about to change the world!
IOT is transitioning into IOT 2.0, and will be part of the machine web WEB 3.0; a global network of autonomous connected devices powered by machine intelligence running on a distributed decentralised protocol.
With the advent of cryptocurrency and smart contracts, machines will be able to make a living by charging fees for all kinds of services. Soon there will be ten times more machines than people inhabiting the planet, and the machines will get smarter and more sophisticated.
The impending machine economy, powered by this global network of autonomous machines, will transform the way we live and work - for the better. Connected sensors embedded within all kinds of objects will make the world smarter, safer, and more energy efficient. Almost every industrial vertical and facet of society will be impacted by the Machine Economy.
