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.
