IoT BCN Smart City Expo: Blockchain + IoT + Next Generation Internet (NGI)

November 14, 2017 @ 18:30 - 21:30

The next IoT Barcelona meetup (http://iot.barcelona) during the Smart City Expo 2017 in Barcelona. Actually this will be a mix of Blockchain and IoT together with Smart City Expo IoT companies, all with fresh beers by our kind sponsor Moritz (http://moritz.com) and thethings.iO (https://thethings.io)


NGI Meetup with Marc Pous, Co-presenters were Josep Sanjuàs about Blockchain, Ethereum and Bitcoin and how to apply these technologies with the Internet of Things and John Tillema speaking about the hardware development of the Things Network. Rob van Kranenburg talked about the bigger picture – #IoT, #AI, #Robotics and the agency of Europe, and the new funding schemes in ICT-24.

A discussion that addressed the current political situation in Barcelona in a logical way ensuing from notions of transparency and information flow of the Digital Transition. The audience debated that it is strange that we want analytics and real time data streams in all networks that make up Internet of Things:

  • BAN, Body Area Network: Wearables
  • LAN, Local Area Network, (Smart) Home
  • WAN, Wide Area Network, (Connected) Car
  • VWAN, Very Wide Area Network, (Smart) City

but in the most important of decision making areas: society, we still allow a 19th century fully analogue model of people discussing in the basis of belief, particular personal needs, romantic territorial notions or ideologies tuned to pre-network archetypes.

The pragmatic cybernetics advocated by NGI Move was seen as a powerful potential bringer of calm, serenity and opportunities in the particular Catalunya situation, and for the EU as a 500 million zone as a whole.
