SAMA has organized the continuation of the seminar or talk about the 4th Industrial Revolution – The Internet of Things. Our returning speaker, Engr. Marlou Madrio, was kind enough to spend a few hours with us in the afternoon of said date above. We had more participants now with some coming from industries that actually use the internet of things in their respective projects.
The event started off with an opening prayer of Ms. Vhines, our internal Vice President.
Followed by the welcoming remarks by Mr. Edwin, our President.
After which, Mr. Shaun, our ext Vice President introduced our returning speaker for the event.
Our participants had a very good and practical exchange of thoughts and ideas with the speaker, who obliged us all with in-depth details and background of the information given to us at that time.
The internet of things are upon us and we are in the middle of them as they progress in time. From the smallest appliance at home (the lights controlled remotely) to the more bulky ones like the refrigerator and washing machines (being rolled out by on popular Korean brand), which can tell you what’s going on inside each them (the refrigerator telling you if you food that are nearing its expiry or the washing machine that tells you if the cycle is finished and its time to hang the clothes), we as consumers must adapt and be aware of all these things in order not to be left behind in the fast growing technology around us.
At the end of the talk, we presented our speaker with a plaque of appreciation for the time he spent with us and the knowledge he imparted as well.
And here are our obligatory group pictures after the event.
Thank you again to all our participants and we look forward to the next session with you on The Internet of Things.

#mitsamasg >> Last September 24, SAMA organized the first of a series of seminars about the Internet of Things. Entitled “Industrie 4.0,” it talks about the 4th Industrial (and technological) Revolution. This is the name given to the German strategic initiative to establish Germany as a lead market and provider of advanced manufacturing solutions.
Industrie 4.0 – A German strategic initiative to become a lead market and provider of advanced manufacturing solutions.
This technical seminar was conducted by Engr. Marlou Madrio at one of the rooms in the AIA Building in Alexandra Road, Singapore.
Our speaker talked about how this on-going revolution will help us be more productive by automating those simple tasks and letting us focus on more complicated work at hand.
He spoke about the Internet of Things (IoT). In the basic sense, it is essentially connecting all devices, electronic or otherwise, into the internet thereby allowing us to monitor and/or control them autonomously. Of course, it is more complicated in real life application. Engr. Madrio also shared that IoT can be utilized to help ease or even solve the traffic problem in the Philippines! If you have the passion and know-how like our speaker, the future will be something else altogether.
We were joined by our SAMA members and friends.
SAMA gave a plaque to Engr. Madrio as a token of our appreciation for sharing with us his technical knowledge with practical applications at his work. It is one of his personal passions in life. He has also expressed his interest to work with our SAMA members to come up with IoT based solutions that will help those in need in Singapore, as a way of giving back to our host country and in the Philippines, as a social endeavor to alleviate the lives of the poor.
Please join and follow us for the next part of the Internet of Things seminar series coming soon.
