Title: Flattening the IoT learning curve

Presenter: Frank Zeichner, Industry Associate Professor, Schools of Systems, Management and Leadership, University of Technology Sydney

Description: The learning curve around the Internet of Things can be very steep and it is almost 5a9ca1abbd778_LearningCurve.jpg.16ca43fd8ec7247b63883df7d89afdab.jpgimpossible to learn all of the technologies involved to any great depth, yet IoT should be on the career path of every engineer because it is expected to impact every industry and discipline. However, engineering professionals that can climb this learning hill and become an IoT specialist in their industry sector are likely to be in great demand.

With the growing maturity of IoT, universities, association and vendors alike are all scrambling to find the best ways to flatten the IoT learning curve to produce more engineers able to work in this burgeoning industry. Frank Zeichner is in a unique position to offer advice, having authored a major report on the uptake of IoT by industry, as CEO of the IoT Alliance Australia (ioTAA)  and now developing courses at UTS.  

In this presentation, Frank will describe the options for learning about IoT and getting involved with the technology. He discusses how individuals, companies and entire industries can develop practical pathways of learning by chosing the right mix of formal, informal and experimental options.

He provides examples of what some organisations are doing in the space, including Tulip (Technology for Urban Liveability Project) and the latest achievements of the IoT Alliance.

About the presenter: Frank is CEO of the IoT Alliance Australia, the peak IoT industry body, Industry Associate Professor, Schools of Systems, Management and Leadership, University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and Director of the Knowledge Economy Institute at UTS an Industry/Research hub for IoT and Cities. In addition, Frank is also a board member of Telsoc.
