Internet 0 -- Bringing IP to the Leaf Node
Raffi C. Krikorian, Synthesis Studios, Inc.

Track: Nanotechnology and Hardware
Date: Friday, April 25
Time: 2:00pm - 2:45pm
Location: Lafayette/San Tomas/Lawrence

The next wave of devices are not going to be connected to the Internet 2, but instead to the Internet 0. The MIT Center for Bits and Atoms has been experimenting with very simple native Internet Protocol networking for very large and distributed systems -- everything from a distributed sensor data-gathering network to the light switches and light bulbs of a house.

This session reviews the hardware and software architectures behind I0, and aims to demonstrate why less hardware, software, and bandwidth can sometimes be more. It will also address questions like: Why not use more complicated things? Why is IP the right thing? What happens when the network is just another utility?
