The Internet as we know it is transitioning from a centralised network that primarily connects humans (Web 2.0), to a decentralised network that primarily connects autonomous machines (Web 3.0). Tomorrow's Internet will not only be more machine-centric, but (hopefully) more decentralised, democratic, ethical, and efficient. The three primary ingredients that are making this a reality are IoT for machine connectivity, AI for machine automation, and DLT (blockchain) for distributed machine interaction.
The fifth edition of IOT Solutions World Congress (IOTSWC) took place last week, and WEB3-IOT attended as an official global media partner. During the three-day event there was a focus on high-quality sales contacts and real-world case studies. The 16,000 visitors, who attended the event, organised by Fira de Barcelona in collaboration with the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), have witnessed the maturity of the Internet of Things, a key technology in digital transformation and learned from fellow users during three days of the Congress. IoT Solutions World Congress 2019 was co-located with Blockchain Solutions World (BSW) and AI & Cognitive Systems Forums (AI & CS), showcasing new solutions, processes and services to seize the full potential and value of data across many industries.
The Industrial Internet Consortium® (IIC™) today announced from its pavilion (E541) at IoT Solutions World Congress three new Test Drives available as part of its Accelerator Program designed to help companies advance their digital transformation strategies. Test Drives are the results of IIC Testbeds and proofs of concept that are available for technology end users to employ and adopt in their own environments.
The full programme of the IoT Solutions World Congress (IoTSWC) is now available. The event organised by Fira de Barcelona in collaboration with the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) will present the experiences of companies using IoT, AI and blockchain solutions, such as Carrefour, Uber, Airbus, Hugo Boss, SNCF Réseau, Maersk GTD, Merck and Daimler Motors, among others.

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.

From 16 to 18 October, the IoT Solutions World Congress (IoTSWC) will showcase the most recent advances in artificial intelligence and distributed ledger technologies such as blockchain as applied to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and, for the first time, will incorporate the “AI & Cognitive Systems Forum” as one of its key tracks. In that Forum, world experts will debate the latest trends in artificial intelligence, data analysis and cognitive computing, and present real-world examples of the convergence of this technology and the IoT to transform different industrial sectors.

automatica is the leading exhibition for Smart Automation and Robotics. The trade fair will take place in Munich from 19 – 22 June 2018, and products on display will range from components, robots and systems to entire production facilities. Mobile World Capital Barcelona will be present and will bring a number of outstanding international startups as part of their delegation to support the continuous global transformation of robotics and smart automation.

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.
