Connect'em All! Internet of Things

General description

Don’t you sometimes feel that your phone knows more about you than yourself?
Or that your home appliances and electronics are smarter than you?
Nowadays, not only social media connect people.

Even the smartest people of present time wonder about those things. One of them
(Stephen Hawking) even said :
“We are all now connected by the Internet,
like neurons in a giant brain”

Our local group decided to explore this idea further by making this year’s topic
of Summer Course devoted to:

Internet of Things
>>the interconnection via the Internet of computing devices embedded in everyday
objects, enabling them to send as well receive data, to respond for users needs<<

Everyday we are surrounded by the infrastructure of intelligent everyday things.
Not only items such as watches, telephones, fridges, electric toothbrushes,
but also homes or even whole cities exchange information constantly,
in order to improve the quality and comfort of our lives.
