Kerry Technology User Group

Members of the IMaR team gave a short presentation at the Kerry Technology User Group meeting on Tuesday evening which was focusing on the topic of the Internet of Things. While it is alway good to get the word out about the current work and research projects within the centre, it was also a great opportunity to hear presentations from and have the opportunity to meet others currently working and studying in this area.
Kerry Technology User Group a group that meets every month to discuss all things technology. Our members are a mix of staff and students from the Institute of Technology, Tralee and individuals from the software industry.
