Gurvinder Ahluwalia on Device Democracy as a Business Model
"This session will include findings from the recent research study conducted by IBM’s Institute for Business Value on a decentralized Internet of Things. We present a revolutionary approach to address the problems of cost, privacy and longevity of smart devices on the Internet Things. We make the case for rethinking the technology strategy at the foundation of the IoT to be secure, scalable and efficient. Our approach leverages the “block chain” – the technology platform underlying Bitcoin - to create a decentralized platform for the Internet of Things.
An overview of how Samsung and IBM are thinking about the next generation of IoT infrastructure, why we're using the Block Chain (derived from Bitcoin) and what to expect at our January proof of concept presentation in CES will be presented."
