Event Report

University of Edinburgh IoT Research Workshop

Connecting things, connecting people


We held our first Internet of Things Research Workshop on 3rd July 2017, in the Informatics Forum. The event generated a great deal of interest amongst participants, and was particularly interesting for the issues that were raised for medical applications of IoT. We are grateful to ARM for contributing a final pair of talks.
