Get Ready for the wonders of the IoT (Internet of Things): machines communicating between themselves, doctors operating you from thousands of miles away and Intelligent clothes tracking your health. But don't forget to prepare yourself for the unpredictable side of the Internet of Things: What is going to happen when a self driving car needs to make a split second decision to run down a 4 year old boy or a 70 year old woman?

Prepárese para las maravillas de “El Internet de las Cosas”: máquinas comunicándose entre sí, doctor operando a millas de distancia de la sala de operación y ropa inteligente monitoreando tu salud. Prepárense para el lado impredecible del Internet de las Cosas: ¿Qué va a suceder cuando un vehículo sin conductor tiene que tomar la decisión entre atropellar una niño de 4 años o una anciana de 70?
