If the term IoT doesn’t bring up an instant reflex of what it means, you are already missing out
the biggest tech wave. Being a buzzword as heated as AI, Internet of Things is constantly
changing the society and our lives by making the world more interconnected than we ever
imagined. It changes the way we converse, commute and contemplate.
The continuous improvement was first adopted by businesses to upgrade their commercial
models, now expanding to individuals’ lives and even city management. Smart urban planning
using IoT technologies is expected to tackle issue like traffic congestion, pollution and energy

According to BI Intelligence, companies are going to spend almost $5 trillion on the IoT in the
next five years — and the proliferation of connected devices and the massive increase in data
has started an analytical revolution. However, for the infinite data to be valuable, the crucial step
is “analyzing”, which is where AI steps in. The machine learning is applied when diving into the
infinite amount of data and finds out patterns, modules, and knowledge that can be transformed
into solutions.

Come and join Disruptive Technologists’s next Meetup event to learn the latest discussion of
the intertwined future of IoT and AI. Our events are fun and freewheeling — a bit edgier and a bit
more wild than other tech events — our attendees can ask questions throughout the panel
discussion, there is wine, beer, gourmet sandwiches, pizza, Hint water, gourmet cookies and a
smaller fireside chat for people who really want to get into a deep discussion without being

The 5 expert IoT panelists will be announced shortly…be sure to RSVP with your full name for
security reasons (and if you are bringing guests please email me with their full names too!). We
can’t wait to see you!
