2015 Open Science Cafe
It’s believed that radio frequency identification (RFID) will radically transform information technology and the way companies do business in the near future. It is a key enabler of the Internet of Things, allowing companies to track and manage parts, containers, tools, finished goods and other real-world objects in real time, with little or no human intervention.
Mark Roberti, Founder and Editor of RFID Journal is the world’s leading RFID expert. At this Open Science Café, Roberti will put these new technologies into the context of our daily lives, explain why he believes mass adoption is just around the corner, and reveal opportunities for entrepreneurs and technologists.
This event is hosted by Robert Garlinghouse (IE ’15), 2015 Open Science Café grant winner. Participants will have the opportunity to experiment with RFID technologies during a hands-on meet and greet before the event. During the event, Raj Parekh (IE ’15) will join Roberti in conversation. There will be time for questions.
Partners: RFID Technology Alliance Club, Cal Poly Entrepreneurs, Cal Poly Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the College of Engineering. Read more about RFID at Cal Poly at the Center for Global Automatic Identification Technologies (PolyGAIT).
