Internet of @ThingsExpo Silicon Valley announced today its first 20 all-star speakers and sessions for its upcoming event, which will take place November 4-6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley.
@ThingsExpo, the first and largest IoT event in the world, debuted at the Javits Center in New York City in June with over 7,200 delegates attending the conference.
The First 20 will present a diverse array of IoT-focused sessions, illuminating the incredible breadth and scope of the Internet of Things. Sensors, beacons, Big Data, Docker, WebRTC, security, business models, and the challenge to enterprise IT of overall IoT integration into their infrastructures are all covered by this group of speakers.
@ThingsExpo has expanded from a single track in June 2014 in New York to three full tracks--focused on consumer technology, enterprise integration, and developers--for Santa Clara. The speakers come from the entire spectrum of IoT technology and services providers, and themselves had diverse backgrounds that encompass the richness of the IoT.

The Perfect Storm Intensifies - The Convergence of BigData, Cloud and the Internet of Things is Now at Full Strength
By Mac Devine
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity. Without bringing these three elements together via Systems of Discover you either end up with an Internet of somethings and/or a big mess of data. [continued]
Speaker Bio: Mac has 24 years of experience with networking and virtualization. The first 7 of those years were spent in mainframe software development where he served as chief programmer for several VTAM releases. Mac then moved to mainframe software design where he served as chief designer for several Communications Server releases and lead the design work for Sysplex and SNA over IP networking (aka Enterprise Extender).

The Physical Web
By Scott Jenson
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices
Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys. [continued]
Speaker Bio: Scott Jenson has been at the forefront of user interface design for over 25 years. He was the first member of the User Interface group at Apple in the late 80s, working on System 7, the Apple Human Interface Guidelines and the original Newton.

Scott is now back at Google, on a quest to bridge the physical and digital worlds. [continued]
Identity Management and WebRTC
By Peter Dunkley
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service - possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings - and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorisation, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. This presentation looks at how this identity problem can be solved and discusses ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication. [continued]
Speaker Bio: Peter is Technical Director at Acision. He graduated from The University of Edinburgh in 2000 with a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science. After graduation Peter worked on a PSTN switch developing signalling stacks for SS7, ISDN and similar protocols and creating advanced routing and service applications. [continued]
IoT: Integration of Things
By Chris Mathieu
There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. These devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting... [continued]
Speaker Bio: Chris Matthieu is Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc. He has two decades of telecom and web experience. He launched his Teleku cloud communications-as-a-service platform at eComm in 2010 which was acquired by Voxeo. Next he built an opensource Node.JS PaaS called Nodester which was acquired by AppFog. His new startup is Twelephone (http://twelephone.com).

Big Data's Potential in Helping To Secure the Internet of Things
By James G. Kobielus
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

IoT Moves Into The Commercial Mainstream
By Diego Tamburini
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment, and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, more manufacturers will embed sensors in their products and connect them to the Internet to monitor their performance and offer pro-active maintenance services. [continued]
