Effectively implementing Internet of Things technologies and advanced analytics represents a trillion-dollar opportunity for industrial companies. However successful adoption involves an end-to-end, holistic approach, affecting practically every aspect of traditional business operations. Now is the time for companies to evaluate their IoT strategies, draw upon lessons learned to date from across market sectors, and position themselves for success going forward.

It goes without saying that the IoT has been changing the world at a drastic rate. The interconnectivity people can integrate into key parts of their daily lives has already changed how simple tasks are completed. Like many industries affected by the IoT, the construction industry is no exception. Not only are processes being changed and new cybersecurity concerns being addressed, but the IoT also has the potential to change how we design buildings of the future. Here are five ways IoT is impacting the construction industry.

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.

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.

When I attended Digit’s FinTech event held in Edinburgh last week – another impeccably run conference – one of the main, consistent themes was the rise of challenger banks. What became obvious from the talks I listened to and the conversations I had with delegates was that a classic David and Goliath scenario is starting to play out. Not only are plucky fintech startups like Atom, Monzo and Revolut enticing affluent young customers away from traditional banks, but they are also managing to convert them into fiercely loyal advocates. This is an extraordinary feat when you consider how much is spent by incumbents on advertising and marketing.

Here at WEB3-IOT our aim is to track the inevitable convergence between the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) such as blockchain. One of the most heated debates in the DLT space right now is - which blockchain will form the infrastructure for the coming wave of Decentralised Applications (Dapps) that will run on Web 3.0? Anthony Broderick takes a deep dive into how Bitcoin and Ethereum' blockchain platforms stack up against EOS.

Before I begin, it is vital that I make one thing very clear. By writing this piece, it is not my intention to judge or undermine event organisers. They must be congratulated for all their hard work, and it’s important to remember that conferences are a platform for innovation. They facilitate connections, inspire new thinking, and enable innovators to promote themselves and obtain much-needed visibility as a result of being given a forum to speak and exhibit. It's always a great pleasure to cover our favourite conferences, and include them in our 2018 Conference Directory. We consider it as our duty to support them, so keep up the good work!
