Description: This presentation is about the mission and agenda of Australia’s IoT Alliance, an industry body working toward addressing the inhibitors and enablers of the industry. The Alliance said there is a “potential upside impact worth up to $116 billion to the Australian economy by 2025” but that a number of regulatory and policy changes need to take place to realise this potential.
Frank Zeichner, co-author of the report Enabling the Internet of Things for Australia, discusses the range of programs underway by the IOT Alliance covering collaboration, sectoral focus, data sharing and privacy, spectrum availability and licencing, security and network resiliency and IoT Startup support.
Frank will talk about what is being done by industry to influence and engage government in the above programs and what is need to foster IoT based innovation through IoT advocacy, awareness and education, as well as uptake of IOT in key Australian Industries. The aim of the IOT Alliance is to be the leading Australian IoT industry body shaping the regulatory and collaborative framework to harness for Australian industry the opportunities generated by IoT.
