IET Future Tech Panel (formerly the IET Internet of Things Panel)

The IET Internet of Things Panel with over 80 industry experts has, in the last five years strived to evangelise and accelerate the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) across sectors. We believe that IoT is indeed an all-pervasive technology and are proud of the role we have played in building awareness and deployment in our region. However, in the coming years (and we can already see evidences) that IoT alone will not suffice. AI, Blockchain, ML, VR are taking centre stage and the use-cases that are coming in are fascinating. IoT will be a key enabler in crafting the success and influence of these Future Technologies. 

Therefore, we have decided to pivot and scale our focus to technologies beyond Internet of Things. With this in mind, we are recasting our panel to be called as ‘The IET Future Tech Panel’.

The IET Future Tech Panel

The IET Future Tech panel is conceptualised and designed to provide a neutral platform for interdisciplinary thought and action in areas of future technologies. Led by the volunteers of IET India, the IET Future Tech panel will be an inclusive, neutral and credible platform working towards being the thought-hub for future technologies as well as future technologists.

Starting off with 12 working groups, working towards disseminating knowledge about future technologies and creating roadmaps for their adoption, the panel will be chaired by Dr Rishi Bhatnagar, President, Aeris Communications.
