“Visualizing the Networked World” – Interview with Cisco’s Internet of Things Guru Mahbubul Alam

I recently interviewed Cisco’s Mahbubul Alam about his work running Cisco’s Internet of Things and M2M business. Alam is passionate about how the Internet of Things will revolutionize core industries and change the way we work. He should know: Alam’s team is building the fast, deterministic networks and other gear needed to transport the huge data streams fully connected industries will create. He envisions that the impact to workers will be profound, with difficult and dangerous work relegated to robotic equipment, knowledge workers will predominate in the decades ahead.
