What is the Internet of Things? 
And how does that relate to Systems Engineering?

The Internet of Things is a hot-button topic related to the connection of devices to the Internet and to each other, and how this creates a hyper-connected world where devices talk to each with timely information on what, where and when a relevant event is happening. As technology advances, the types of devices and systems connecting to the Internet grows, creating a complex world of connections and information.  In this discussion, Don will address some of the challenges and complexities of how the Internet of Things will impact the future of technology and systems engineering.
