The Incisor.TV USA IoT Roundtable delivers real IOT

2016 USA Roundtable crop 1200 x 448

The Incisor.TV Roundtable programme, with events in the USA and Europe, brings together leading organisations to discuss and debate topical, controversial and fundamental aspects affecting the development and roll-out of the Internet of Things.

We film the discussion that takes place, and publish the edited film from the event via Incisor.TV’s networks.

This next Roundtable – our flagship event on the 6th January alongside the 2017 Consumer Electronics Shoe (CES) in Las Vegas – will discuss the most pressing topics affecting ongoing implementation of the Internet of Things and will show real, working IoT solutions.

We want each participant to bring or (at least tell us about!) real, working examples of Internet of Things applications in use today. It could be a smart meter, a connected car, a smart home security system, wearable technology, a connected health device – we don’t mind what it is, but it must be changing lives TODAY. As long as these IoT solutions are physically present at the Roundtable, they will be filmed and featured as part of each participant’s individual video interview.

And we have another major change to the event’s content. Every full participant will be able to bring a partner. If the participating organisation is a standards body (SIG/Alliance/Forum etc), then the partner could be the member company that has developed the IoT application that is being shown. It the participant is a semiconductor company, the partner could be the semicon’s customer that has integrated its silicon in an IoT solution. You get the picture.

Real intelligence for decisions with real consequences.


  1. Will it be those companies that are ready to disrupt and challenge their existing business models that really create the architecture for the IoT?
  2. Is there a chance that as the IoT evolves, Google and Apple may not be as successful as some of the new, nimbler and fresh-thinking companies that emerge?
  3. Car companies are now saying that the most important selling tool in the car today is not engine size or power, not performance, not reliability, not fuel consumption – it is the dashboard and the systems is contains. How important a part of the IoT is the car?
  4. Observers comment that the car will potentially become a serious weak link in the data security chain, managing as it does so much personal data. Will this be a real challenge for the car companies?
  5. The problem for the roll out of IoT is not a lack of standards. If anything, there are too many. Is now the time for consolidation, and who is likely to drop away?
  6. It is acknowledged that for IoT security, no one organisation can control the process from end to end. You have to look at each stage of the chain and ask – is that secure? Is this loose assembly of security provision stages an acceptable basis for roll-out of the IoT or do there need to be dedicated security and privacy standards and a body to govern them?
  7. We are going to have to go through a period of evolution where IoT devices are developed. Some will succeed, and some will fail. There will be some early adopters that get their fingers burned. Is this an acceptable price?
  8. Could long range, low power wide area networks as promoted by the likes of LoRa, Weightless and SigFox replace the gateway in the home?
  9. Following the merger of the AllSeen Alliance and the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF), do we believe that protocol-agnostic application layers such as IoTivity and AllJoyn are a good thing?
  10. The cellular operators are looking at the gateway as an access point to deliver secure, trusted services into the home. How influential will the operator play be in development of the IoT?
  11. Should the industry play fast and loose with data? Or should caution be the order of the day, with corporations figuring data use it into their risk management, for fear of potentially paying the penalty – brand and fiscal – for misuse?
  12. Is the best way of looking at IoT interoperability for it to be web-based – using web technologies to drive interoperability?

Participation in the 2017 Incisor.TV USA Roundtable costs £3250.00 Ex VAT. This includes:

  • Each Roundtable participant will each have one place at the main Roundtable event, plus one place for a partner organisation. The resulting Roundtable movie will be supplied as links or embed code for the client to use for its own purposes.
  • An individual video interview will be filmed with each full participant immediately after the main Roundtable event. The individual video interview gives each participant the opportunity to make sure his or her company’s key messages are delivered and will include participant titling and company logo. Provided the IoT product or application that the participant has described is physically present on the day of the Roundtable filming, it will be filmed as part of the participant interview. Links and/or embed code for individual interviews will be supplied to each participant so that the video can be used by the participant in their own marketing.
  • A short editorial profile of each company will be in Incisor magazine prior to the event.
  • Companies will be listed as participants on the Roundtable landing page
  • Roundtable main movies are promoted in Incisor magazine, at our web site,via our social media networks at Twitter and LinkedIn and normally by co-hosts and each of the participating companies at their own sites. It is this multi-company promotion that gives the event such vast reach.
  • Individual participant moves are promoted in Incisor magazine, at our web site and via our social media networks at Twitter and LinkedIn
