#swisstechtalks: The Internet of Tagged Things

16.04.2019 18:00 - 20:00
CreativeSpace Zürich, Luegislandstrasse 105, 8051 Zürich
Dominique Guinard, Founder & CTO of EVRYTHNG shares insights on the topic of Internet of Things.

As you might know the IoT as a term came out of the Auto-ID Labs. They coined the term when talking to P&G to describe a day in which all their products would have RFID tags somehow connected to information systems on the Internet.

In this talk, I will report on the state of the nation in tagged things. This often forgotten space is at the edge of a silent revolution. From printed electronics starting to make it to apparel and CPG (consumer packaged goods) to the rise of low-power (e.g., LPWAN) and power harvesting technologies, to the role of blockchains in goods-tracking and authenticity and finally to the upgrade of the new GS1 Digital Link standard that will slowly replace the famous barcode with a Web-enabled 2D identifier.

All these developments will change our world, not only our smart homes and smart cities but every single CPG item we consume or apparel item we wear.
