CEDIA has announced that the keynote talk for its first Tech Forum of 2018 will focus on the increasingly significant impact of the Internet of Things on the professional home technology sector. Taking place at CodeNode, London on Tuesday 24th April, the presentation will be delivered at the close of the Tech Forum day by David Mudd (pictured), Business Development Director (IoT) at the British Standards Institute (BSI).
David has over 30 years’ industry experience and has been involved with the Internet of Things (IoT) for the last six years. Originally training as an electronics engineer with the BBC, he then served as an Engineering Officer in the RAF. Since then he has delivered major secure IT projects for the MoD and complex optical telecommunications projects, before moving into microelectronics and LED lighting, including development of IoT-based smart home systems. For the last two years, he has been providing consultancy and testing services to commercial and domestic IoT-related markets before joining BSI in June.
In his keynote presentation, David will discuss how IoT technology is transforming business today, in terms of organisational performance and customer experience. He will explore the pitfalls — from minor operational inconveniences to huge potential liabilities and brand damage. This will include an up-to-date overview of the current state of the IoT, the opportunities and threats it presents to the industry, how you should engage with the IoT and associated products, how to differentiate from proposed ‘simple, low-cost’ offerings, and key questions to ask potential IoT-enabled system suppliers. David will also explain why home technology businesses should be considering IoT as part of their offering, and which devices and products are likely to offer the greatest valueto ensure you stay ahead of the game.
The CEDIA Tech Forum is supported by, AWE, Energenie, Flint Insurance, Focal, Genesis, LG, LILIN, Lutron, Meridian Audio, Niko, OneAV, Redline, and RGB.
