This is the final of our exclusive 4-part series talking with GE folks about their Industrial Internet (we like to call it “Big IoT”) initiatives. This is a unique view into the side of the Internet of Things you don’t normally get to hear about.
In this episode we talk to Lynn DeRose about “cooking with big data” (literally), robot wrangling, and bringing old factories into the modern age. Lynn specializes in introducing innovative technology into old processes, and hanging out with intelligent robots. Get ready to hear about the “smartest” smoker in Austin, the next generation of robot inventors and getting robots and people to enjoy helping each other out.
