DIGITAL PENINSULA Greenwich: Gateway to the Internet of Everything

Deconstructing the Internet of Things was the title for a 2-part event:

 

  1. in the ever so intriguing Ravensbourne College near North Greenwich tube
  2. on the most impressive 11th floor of 6 Mitre Passage @ Digital Enterprise Greenwich, which gave me a real sense of elation.

 

The event with the nicest Cafe Mocha I have had for a long time: the host Richard Foggie invited me before hearing the most impressive presentation by Paul Harter  who presented “Printcraft”:

 

  • he had a 3D printer with him and showed how the project evolved from his kids using Minecraft to make things;
  • he masterminded and coded the project that put kids’ computers, data bases and everything together that needed to be named.

 

That’s one of the challenges: to uniquely identify every object and yet create a ‘connectable and identifyable’ system of components – comparable to domain names and IP addresses, I thought. I was wondering, once again, whether my maths shouldn’t be used for encryption, since nobody knows it…

 

The second presentation was not my cup of tea, as I’ve never been a hardware person. But: up on the 11th floor, we heard not only Richard Foggie, but also Ian Foddering, CTO of CISCO who swiftly moved from the Internet of Things – that connects the unconnected – to the Internet of Everything:

 

  • people
  • processes
  • data – the juice that flows through the Internet of Things
  • things.

Maurizio Pilu’s perspective was beautifully comprehensive and from one of the connected remote locations we saw how tweets and wind speeds are being visualised in creative ways.

 

What a treat! London at its best – introducing Greenwich as the next best area for growth.

 

Presumably we’ll receive a link with all of the slides of the presentations.
