The IEEE will develop and share training content related to the Internet of Things and the various initiatives. Additionally, the organizations will work to educate industries on the role of the Internet of Things in enterprise and industrial sectors, collaborate on events, and share relevant research and expertise.
As part of the collaboration, IoT Community will host its Second Annual IoT Day Slam 2020, on April 9th, as part of the IEEE’s World Forum on the Internet of Things, taking place April 5-9, 2020 in New Orleans. This is the premier event for the IEEE IoT Initiative, which draws participation from industry, the public sector, and the research community and includes technical papers, tutorials, workshops, and industry sessions designed specifically to advance technologies that are contributing to how IoT can advance technology for humanity.
David Hill, Executive Director of the IoT Community says, "This collaboration will help the two organizations contribute toward a common goal of accelerating the uptake of the IIoT. As new advances like 5G, the edge, and AI are unleashed to enable the IIoT, opportunities and challenges are top of mind with our members, IoT practitioners, and end-users."
"Ensuring a smooth and secure implementation of these mass evolving technologies is critical," says Hill. "Capitalizing on the capabilities to educate, influence standards, and highlight successful use cases are just a few of the area both organizations can collaborate with their unique thought leadership is of tremendous value to the overall industry."
