SYDNEY, 17 OCTOBER 2017 - The economic opportunities between IoT, work and training are significant in Australia. Yesterday, Monday 16 October 2017, as part of the Social/Hack forum series, the 'IoT & Work' event explored the potential impact of IoT on the Australian workforce at the Lendlease head office in Barangaroo, Sydney.
The Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industries are increasingly focused on continuing professional development, process automation and Building Information Modelling (BIM). IoT & Work explored ideas about adding sensors, hardware and software to tools, equipment and machines so they could detect performance anomalies and skills gaps, suggest real-time micro-lessons and improve productivity.
The inaugural IoT & Work forum was presented by many high calibre speakers.
