Then after that, we will be hosting a joint Austin IoT and ASQ Austin event where the speaker, Chuck Reeves, SME for Smart Spaces and Video Intelligence Division of Hitachi Vantara, will present a riveting presentation entitled ‘A Video Centric Society’.

Chuck's talk will begin with an introduction and background of the speaker, and will cover how video is used today, including an overview of video analytics, privacy and video retention. Also covered will be future trends in video centric environments. Chuck’s presentation will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.

Chuck will be followed by a demonstration of an IoT camera application by Adil Dalal, Director Solution Architecture, Hitachi Global Social Innovation Business. Adil will provide a hands-on demonstration of how a simple motion sensor and camera can be converted to an intelligent IoT device, with image and video capabilities.

Following Adil's presentation there will then be an announcement of an upcoming IoT workshop series by Austin IoT officers, David Brixius and Darren Swan, beginning in July, 2018.
