Kabara Institute Event 2015

The Internet of Things

Join us for an evening exploration of the Internet of Things (IOT) at the Saint Mary's University Twin Cities Campus in Minneapolis. The event includes a moderated panel discussion and an exhibit fair featuring IOT technological devices and information from Minnesota entrepreneurs and IOT partner organizations.

IOT is the networking of objects through the use of embedded sensors and other devices that can collect or transmit information to other devices. This industry is an emerging development predicted to vastly change the way we connect, live, work, and play. The impact of the IOT market on the global economy is projected to be as high as 6.2 trillion by 2025. Currently a variety of applications are being developed in the agricultural, energy, insurance, home automation, and medical industries.
