(View Complete Item Description)

Our world is rapidly changing because of the internet. Professionals at Intel call the special technology we use everyday the Internet of Things (IoT). These things include many things you probably see everyday like an Amazon Alexa and Google Home, your video doorbell, robots, etc. They all have sensors or special technology in them that make them smart so they can take actions when we ask them to – like you can ask Alexa to turn on the lights or tell you a joke and it will do so. In January we are excited to learn from Intel professionals as they explain how the Internet of Things is improving our lives and share details about what they do.
