IoT@BIT China Study Tour 2018
If you’re wondering why there hasn’t been much activity on the c/c/c blog since the end of Semester 2, it’s because I’ve been in China teaching an Internet of Things at the Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT). You can read more about it at that website—including following the student design blogs as they build their artefacts over the summer.
Here’s Brent looking only mildly salty as he wrestles with the privacy/convenience tradeoff in designing an internet-conected “smart potato”1.
China was great, and was really encouraging to see our students engage with the complexities (both technical and especially social/ethical) of a world of smart things. And obiously there are many other great things about travelling the world, especially seeing and eating new things.
Here’s Kieran and I with some of the BIT faculty.
We’re going to be holding an exhibition at the end of the (Australian) summer where the students will show of their final IoT artefacts. If you’d like to come along (it’ll be towards the end of February) you should pay attention to the c/c/c blog (which you’re currently on, anyway) or follow @benswift on twitter.
sadly this is not actually a thing ↩
