Moderation: Rob van Kranenburg (IoT-A SC)
While a fully functioning Internet of Things is still to come,
13:45-13:55 Coordinator of IoT-A Sebastian Lange
13:55-14:10 Technical Coordinator of IoT-A Alex Bassi
14:10-14:25 the IoT architecture for Agriculture and food safety in
14:25-15:00 Breakout groups on three key issues:
a) Naming and addressing
b) Energy efficiency of the infrastructure itself
c) Balance global - regional, governance issues: what model?
The format of the breakout session is based on “Notes on the Design of Participatory Systems - for the City or the Planet” from Usman Haque.
Step 1: Identify the dilemma in small groups of five participants
Step 2: Identify the stakeholders.
Step 3: List incentives for stakeholders to act or change.
Step 4: What is the evidence that the acts or changes have occurred?
Step 5: This is the most important step: Create a tool to help convince end users that the dilemma is real, the incentives are right, and the tools for change need to be adopted.
