The lecture was delivered by Dr. Robert Pepper, Vice President, Global Technology Policy, Cisco on the theme “Re-Imagining Society through the Internet of Everything”.

During the lecture, Dr. Pepper identified critical global challenges how the Internet of Everything (IoE) can help address them through digital technology and transforming data to actionable insights.

The IET Pinkerton lecture is a unique proposition by the IET to ensure the technical community is kept abreast with the latest trends in engineering and technology and IoT/IoE is definitely the next market transition for all sectors of engineering and society.  I am honoured to be part of this important conversation.
