This “Internet of Things” (IoT) concept will be the topic of the April 5 Monfort Professor Lecture by Sudeep Pasricha, the Rockwell-Anderson Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Pasricha, who was named Monfort Professor in 2016, will discuss “The Internet of Future Things: How Do We Get There?” at 4 p.m. in Clark A202. His talk will survey the current landscape of IoT devices and provide a peek into the future of this Internet revolution. Pasricha will also discuss the challenges and opportunities arising from the continuously evolving technologies behind IoT, and will highlight several of CSU’s promising research efforts to realize the future of IoT.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
