SmartTalk: Towards a Precision Planet
June 2, 2016 @ 17:00 - 19:00
@ISCTE Edificio Sedas Nunes, Auditório Caiano Pereira
Towards a Precision Planet
This talk will begin with an overview of the state of the art in cloud computing. In particular we’ll discuss what’s happening in applications, software development, operations management, and compute & storage cloud computing. Given that compute & storage cloud computing is as much an economic innovation as a technical one, we’ll focus the second part of the talk on how these products can be used to build applications for the Internet of Things. In particular we’ll discuss how these technologies might change the planet we live on, by being able to deliver precision farming, healthcare, power, water, construction and transportation. For the first time, those of us in software, might not only change the virtual world, but also the physical world.
