The Internet of Things (IoT) is an innovative field developing rapidly. In daily life it is about connecting computers and various smart devices such as a thermostat, an irrigation system, home alarm, cameras etc. in order to automatically perform various tasks. For example, a smart thermostat would reduce the energy consumption in the house when it identifies that there is no one in the house.
But beyond efficiency, IoT connectivity also enables us to improve our personal and public seucurity. A “smart city” networked with connected devices enhances the anti terror and anti crime capabilities, the control over city centers, as well as over remote vital installations, to reduce traffic congestion, detect potholes on routes via sensors, and more.
However, connectivity has its risks, as we are now more vulnerable to dangers, such as hacking attempts at devices linked to security systems, hackers connecting to smart car systems might gain control over their driving, etc.
The innovations on the IoT sphere, solutions and other fascinating aspects will be the focus of the unique conference on IoT organized by iHLS on November 23rd, 2016.
The keynote address will be given by Lt. Col. Nurit Iger, from Matzpen Department, IDF, which is responsible for the development of the armed forces’ major information systems.
