Said: Arvind Tiwary, Chair, IoT SIG , TiE, said, “We are seeing great traction for IoT in India and there has been a host of start-ups being set-up with an intention to design and build innovative connected devices. Our country is also witnessing a large number of student innovators working on various IoT projects in their respective campuses. We are committed to identify and mentor these smart technology brains at an early stage and build a wave of entrepreneurship in the colleges across India.”
Added M N Vidyashankar, President, India Electronics & Semiconductor Association (IESA):," “IESA is convinced about the impressive future of India’s IoT space. It is our constant endeavour to support the IoT start-ups and student innovators and this time we have decided to focus on healthcare and agriculture as we see it impacting the lives of millions across our country like no other sector. The solutions developed by these start-ups have the potential to directly impact lives across metros, tier II cities, small towns and our villages. The benefits will be multi-prolonged; the ‘thought leadership’ aspect will very soon make all of us proud and more importantly the ‘economic impact’ wherein the big billion dollars that IoT will bring to the country’s exchequer.”

  "Giuseppina Excelente tu post!A los que han opinado, buen debtae, creo que es importante tanto resaltar lo bueno de nuestro pais, aquello que af1oramos todos los que hemos estado afuera sea cual sea la causa. De igual manera no hay que restarle valor al hecho de que ser autocredticos es muy importante para el crecimiento y para el aprendizaje. No solamente es la imagen de lo que no nos gustaba de nuestro paeds al estar alled -como la inseguridad o el amiguismo y la corrupcif3n- sino que debemos dejar con nuestra actitud de buenos trabajadores, de personas honestas, de humildad, de tolerancia frente a quienes piensan o son diferentes, de compaf1erismo; debemos dejar ver que los venezolanos somos algo me1s que opuestos poledticos o tracaleros que somos alegres, vivaces ( sin pretender ser los vivos ), que dentro de nuestro crisol cultural y de esa adaptabilidad al cambio o a los diferentes estedmulos, somos lo que somos: desayunamos arepas con guayoyo pero que no dejamos de disfrutar una buena pizza o una paella sabemos madrugar para trabajar bien tempranito y tambie9n nos gustan los amaneceres rumbeando Es vital que estemos donde estemos -en Venezuela o afuera- sepamos valorar y respetar a los deme1s, que no pretendamos que los deme1s resuelvan nuestros problemas, que propongamos soluciones y participemos en lugar de sf3lo criticar se acercan las elecciones es una buena oportunidad para demostrar que aqued o alle1 somos venezolanos y nos importa lo que pase en el paeds.La idea de organizarnos estando afuera puede parecer poco atractiva cuando estamos sumergidos en el deda a deda pero sin duda sereda una manera de mantener vivas las tradiciones, ofrecerles a nuestras familias un espacio de encuentro con nuestras raedces (no sf3lo la comida sino tambie9n con manifestaciones culturales, deportivas, festividades, etc.) y con nuestro presente foros de discusif3n, acceso a informacif3n y noticias en fin, ese lugarcito fuera de casa donde podamos sentir que pertenecemos por completo. Gracias por este post que nos ha dado la oportunidad de tocar estos temas!!!Saludos!!!!"
