Following on from the IoT Scotland Conference, this workshop organised by the IoT Research & Innovation Services and the University of Edinburgh Bayes Centre, provided an opportunity to forge new collaborations to accelerate the local development and adoption of IoT, a key component of the upcoming Edinburgh and South East Scotland city region Data Driven Innovation Programme.
The new IoT Research and Innovation Service establishes an end-to-end system from sensor to insight, involving an extensive network of devices and gateways, together with software tools for data analysis and visualisation. This workshop provided an opportunity for participants from industry to hear more about the new IoT Service, help us shape our future direction and explore how they might benefit from IoT in your own organisation. This is an exciting time as we prepare to open the IoT service up to partners across the Edinburgh and South East Scotland city region.
We were joined by expert speakers across industry, academia and the public sector, then participants took part in discussions focused on developing new collaborative opportunities. You can access the slides from our speakers below, and a report will be shared later this summer.
