I'll be a judge for this.
I think they must have spent more on the production of that one video than I've spent in 1000 videos  ;D

If the school would not be getting lab equipment, I would probably be in.  >:D

IoT is the answer. Now tell us the problem.

Its a bit of a leap of faith to believe IoT is the answer to all the worlds problems. At best it will make small marginal improvements.

While you do have a valid point, I wouldn't be quite so dismissive.  You never know what ideas may pop up - nor their impact.  Someone might just put together one of those "why didn't someone do this already" ideas.

The hard part isn't the idea or even the technology, it's securitization so that an individual is able to insure it's freely open OR locked down well enough to keep mega corporations from using it for ill gotten gains, a-la-SCO.

"In the year 2050 over two thirds of the world's population will live in urban cities"
I sure hope so

Don't forget the farmers and ranchers, then.

Creativity is not something you can mandate.

Engineering innovation and IoT has been a crisis myth for years, corporations crying for ideas, a massive panic to get products "Internet enabled".
Everybody demo's a lightbulb being turned on and off using the Internet. Or a sensor data coming in remotely. Huge yawn.

I installed a new garage door opener which has WiFi. The accompanying phone app authenticates to a main server at the manufacturer's head office.
It knows your contacts, when you're home, when you leave, your WiFi password, the lone server could get hacked and a nation-wide command to "open the garage door" could get issued.
There's a huge security and privacy loss with IoT. Gear that relies on cloud servers to do logging or advanced processing (voice recognition) is super creepy but the novelty is what gets marketed.

The IoT inventions I've made were well received but corporate managers say "na we won't make much money off it" or "that's not really our main business" so they can't handle any thinking "out of the box" that could lead to new business or make the world a better place. Profit comes first.

Don't forget those who fish either, and those responsible who just duck.   :phew:

Students only if anyone is wondering.

"Keysight Technologies is inviting undergraduate and graduate students worldwide in eligible countries to participate in its IoT Innovation Challenge."
