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.
