Roadmap to a Connected World

Internet           THINGS:

By 2020, there will be 50 billion devices connected to the Internet.  How will you and your organization capitalize on this tremendous opportunity?


While the promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) brings many new business prospects, it also presents significant challenges ranging from technology architectural choices to security concerns.  MIT Professional Education’s new Internet of Things: Roadmap to a Connected World course offers important insights on how to overcome these challenges and thrive in this exciting space.


The concept of Internet of Things (IoT), which has roots at MIT, has begun to make an impact in industries ranging from industrial systems to home automation to healthcare.  MIT researchers continue to conduct ground-breaking research on topics ranging from RFID to cloud technologies, from sensors to the World Wide Web.  Participants in this innovative program will hear from MIT faculty leaders at the forefront of the IoT space, such as Professors Sanjay Sarma, co-chair of the MIT Auto-ID Labs, and Daniela Rus, Director of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), as well as other CSAIL researchers, and industry experts such as Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web and founder of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).  Also presenting are Carlo Ratti, director, MIT SENSEable City Lab and Joseph Paradiso, co-director, Things That Think Consortium, MIT Media Lab.


Join this new evolution in hardware, software, and data by registering for this six-week online offering.  At the end of the program, you will be able to understand how to develop and implement your own IoT technologies, solutions, and applications.
