Presentation: Combining Context with Signals in the Internet of Things

Track: Internet of Things / Time: Thursday 15:50 - 16:40 / Location: Glazen Zaal

People. Devices. Smart objects. Things. All of these create data, or signals. Signals, and responding to them in intelligent ways, are what drives behaviour.
As Twitter has evolved into a universal platform to share, consume and broadcast information, it is also a conduit for these signals. With the rise of the mobile ecosystem, the Twitter APIs have become more important than ever - combining a user's social context with data from the Internet of Things enables you to build great application experiences that will delight users.
