On this week’s Internet of Things Podcast, co-hosts Stacey Higginbotham and Kevin Tofel talk about how Lockstate bricked connected locks by updating the software. They also discuss Anker’s Eufy Genie, a connected bassinet and a story that portrays Carnegie Melon’s super sensor in a scary light. They also talk about Caraoke, June’s new wall-mounted oven and a plan to use Outlook to schedule your Roomba.
Today’s guest is Daniel Cooley, SVP and General Manager of Silicon Labs’ IoT division. He talks about predicting what features chips will need three to five years before he thinks we’ll need them. He also talks about pushing more math to sensors, how important it is to get security right, the future of human-to-machine interfaces and the types of business models we’ll need.
Correction: This episode credited the super sensor to MIT, but it was built by researchers from Carnegie Melon. The post has been changed on Aug. 29, 2017 to reflect the correction.
