Episode 96

Okay, our blockchain discussion isn’t quite over yet. Let me ask the question again, is blockchain ready to transact IoT business? The answer is still a resounding “no” but let me caveat it by saying, there are newer technologies that address blockchain’s bottlenecks and deployment weaknesses.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), where I speak with Ashish Mehta about the options available for those who want to incorporate blockchain-like functionality into IoT today ...


Analyzing athlete data has been performed in high-level sports for years but it’s only recently that wearables and IoT could be realistically used to deliver useful information to athletes and coaches alike.
Watch this video (or read this transcript) to see Mounir Zok discuss how today’s wearables combined with state of the art Internet of Things technologies are advancing sport ...




Episode 93

Want to incorporate blockchain into IoT? Well, that’s a pretty tall order but you have two ways to go about it. Go it alone to build the world’s best IoT blockchain protocol and hope it’s adopted or join others that have similar goals to build the world’s best IoT blockchain protocol in hopes that it’s adopted.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), where I speak with Zaki Manian about the technology and business advantages of blockchain in IoT and the approach the Trusted IoT Alliance is taking to make them a reality ...




Episode 90

The GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, is coming – whether we like it or not. Before you dismiss it as a European thing, take a second look, because on May 25, 2018, data privacy is going to change worldwide and forever. The EU is stepping up and leading the world in defining the future of data privacy.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), where I speak with Rosie Burbidge about the GDPR, why it’s consequential and why it’s going to affect you ...




Episode 78

There’s all kinds of opinions about where the value is in IoT. Well, a group that put their money where their mouths are, are investors. This is a panel discussion where I interview two VCs with similar goals but different approaches.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Upal Basu and Jesse DeMesa about what they look for when making an Internet of Things investment ...




Episode 77

Lose five pounds of belly fat in five days! Sound too good to be true? Yeah, it probably is and because of that you would expect the FTC to be all over it. But instead of weight loss products, what about IoT products? What’s fair? What’s deceptive?
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Jared Ho about the FTC’s role in IoT and some guidelines to help your company navigate through the gray ...




Episode 75

What’s the legal definition of a product? Does it cover IoT and is IoT classified a product or a service? Given our laws were never designed for the types of products being sold today, it’s not surprising that there are different interpretations of our current laws and regulations when it comes to IoT.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) with Ron Quirk and Alex Schneider about the legal limbo we’re in and how the legal landscape is evolving to catch up with the times ...




Episode 52

It’s a symbiotic relationship – the big corporation, in search for that innovative edge, and the small startup, in search for support to get their ideas off the ground. Both have what the other needs – desperately. Coming together they form one type of ecosystem. To be players, all IoT companies – big and small – must be part of one or more ecosystems.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) where I speak with the folks at TechrIot about their approach of bringing IoT companies together ...




Episode 50

As the technology of IoT evolves the concept of a distributed computing environment is becoming increasingly relevant. A key component of this architecture is fog computing, blending the cloud to the edge. Being able to access computing, networking and storage resources locally makes sense for many classes of IoT deployments.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) where I speak with the bigwigs of the newly formed, OpenFog Consortium ...


Timeslotted Channel Hopping (TSCH), via IEEE 802.15.4e, is an emerging standard in industrial automation and process control (via Wireless HART and ISA 100.11a) that defines a communication schedule between neighbor nodes in Low-power and Lossy Networks (LLNs). In an effort to bridge the worlds of operational technology (OT) with information technology (IT), the 6TSCH working group has been established to define how to use IPv6 over the 15.4e.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to hear Xavi Villajosana explain how 15.4e operates and what’s still missing in the complete OT/IT stack ...
