IoTaH - the Internet of Things and Humans
There is much talk about IoT, and most of this either has no effect on technical communication, or tries to solve problems that are not realistic while failing to solve problems that are. If no humans are involved, IoT is just machines talking to machines – which they have been doing for a very long time.
When humans enter the loop, technical information needs to be defined in a manner that allows both humans and machines to interpret the information in the correct manner. This is where structured authoring comes in, along with new techniques for defining interactions between machines and humans. This presentation will give you more insight into what is at stake when you are working in a field that connects the information dots between machines and human beings.
