ThingsCon Salon Denver, CO: The Future of IoT

The Information Science and Technology Center (ISTeC) at Colorado State University will host the first ThingsCon Salon – Colorado on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. It will be held in the 2nd floor atrium in CSU’s Denver Center at 475 17th Street in downtown.

The salon will feature experts discussing the present state and future developments in the Internet of Things, the human use of “smart” devices that are networked together via the Internet. Smart devices ranging from household thermostats shaving utility peak loads to networked water sensors for more efficient agriculture will expand the value of formerly inanimate machines and hardware.

Featured speakers include:

Eric Lustgarten, Director of Growth and Strategy at Hygge Power in Boulder, Eric will be discussing Hygge Power’s new IOT product, the Orchestrated Power Outlet.

Ashton Smith, Hygge Power’s Human Interaction Design Lead, will dig more into the technology, and also into the human factors that go into the design.

Professor Tim Amidon from Colorado State University will discuss the state of wearable physiological monitoring technologies being developed for firefighters who work in high risk environments.

Tyler Svitak, executive director of the Colorado Smart Cities Alliance will talk about how cutting-edge cities are leveraging IoT trends in the service of solving both old and new challenges of urban living.

The salon will also include a discussion of related social effects of the adoption of IoT technologies, such as privacy, surveillance, and equity of access — among other topics.

Don Dulchinos, President of Smart Home and Away in Boulder, and veteran information technology executive, will moderate the presentations and discussion.

A post-event social gathering will be held at the nearby Ship’s Tavern in the Brown Palace Hotel.
