Wearable Technology II. The Internet of Things by Longevity Explorers: Recent @ Providence

Following his overview of the talk, Prof. Mandokiya provided an explanation of how the broad new system termed "the internet of things" works -- linking appliances with sensors to transmitting devices like smart phones and Alexa, which forward these signals to "the cloud" where they are stored and interpreted.
