Session 2:“Accelerating IoT in the US: To ensure IoT’s future, where should Federal government resources and investments be directed?”

  • Benson Chan and Gordon Feller

The webinar presenters are a team of IoT experts who received a grant from the US National Institute of Standards and Technology to conduct a unique IoT research study. The focus is on identifying IoT infrastructure gaps across ten industries; assessing and quantifying the macroeconomic benefits of closing those gaps; and recommending to the Federal government where to direct initiatives (research investments and other resources) over the next five to ten years. 

Summary: The Internet of Things promises to bring transformational change to numerous industries. Today’s use cases and successes are merely the tip of the iceberg. However, there are a number of technology infrastructure challenges that must be overcome in order to realize IoT’s potential, and ultimately, the full benefits.  This interactive webinar will present findings and learnings to date. There are IoT infrastructure gaps which, once filled, would result in greater adoption of IoT, and which would accelerate the use of IoT within the US. Which of these IoT infrastructure gaps are needing to be filled with the greatest level of urgency?

2:45pm - Q & A

Leading the Wisconsin Connectivity


What We Believe

To inspire Wisconsin and the Midwest to be a leader in the internet of Things evolution. We believe that our rich history of supporting industries such as manufacturing, software, retail and healthcare give the region the experience and knowledge needed to foster the Internet of Things. 

We also believe if our companies and their employees are to continue to stay and grow here, and if new companies are going to be built here, we need to promote Wisconsin and the Midwest as the epicenter for IoT and drive technological advancement in the region so the world knows if you want to succeed in the Internet of Things evolution, you build it in the Midwest.

What We Do

WIoT is a professional membership driven organization that advocates for Wisconsin and the Midwest as the epicenter for IoT by providing the WIoT and its members with a forum and environment conducive for purposeful networking, relationship building, talent attraction and development and mutual exchange of information relative to the Internet of Things.

How We Do It

We provide statewide programming for our WIoT membership in the form of a regular event series focused on Education, Capital, Talent and Policy as it pertains to the Internet of Things.  Additionally, we provide an IoT Inventory of regional companies focused on IoT and source and publish case studies of IoT products and implementations that have taken place in Wisconsin.
