Are households prepared for a connected future? RELINK start-up conference
Kl. 09:00 - 14:00
Smart technologies and the Internet of things (IoT) pervade society. Even homes have become data-rich “mini-IoT” environments connected to larger digital infrastructures. Security systems, household appliances, smart home hubs and wearables promise seamless services and assistance to users. However, smart devices can also act as “Trojans” that potentially threaten the safety of the home. These opportunities and challenges will be discussed in the RELINK opening conference.
Relink is a research project funded by the Research Council of Norway, IKTPluss 2019-2023). Read more about the Relink project (in Norwegian).
