The Internet of Things is a highly relevant area, and a growing trend in information technology, partly thanks to growing wireless networks, development of cloud computing, computer interaction and other technologies. The areas of application for IoT are truly boundless’.
‘The aim of the IoT Samsung Academy project is to create competency centres for IoT technologies at the country’s leading tech universities, including HSE MIEM. This will allow us to contribute to the development of the digital economy in Russia’, said Sergey Pevnev, Head of Corporate Relations and Government Relations at Samsung Electronics.
