Publication Date: 29 October, 2014


At the Innovation Ireland Forum on Friday the 24 October, UCD Earth Institute Director Professor Greg O'Hare discussed the remarkable potential of the internet of things (IoT), as well as the security and privacy challenges of a connected world as part of an panel of experts including  Intel, ESB and TSSG.

Professor O’Hare said that there’s no excuse for Ireland not to be on top of our game and being one of the main instigators of the ever-changing landscape of the internet: “The world where we think of things as an island where they don’t have any connection from other devices is fundamentally archaic.”
