About Start IoT
The history of Start IoT began in 2016 when Telenor Group CEO Sigve Brekke challenged Telenor researchers to come up with an initiative that could build competence and stimulate digital innovation in Norway. We started by asking our key stakeholders in the academia, industry and government institutions in Norway what direction we should take. The answer was Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT). The Telenor Start IoT initiative is the result of that. The AI part has manifested itself with the opening of Telenor-NTNU AI-Lab together with NTNU and SINTEF on 08/03/2017. The IoT and AI initiatives complement each other – the IoT will bring large datasets and AI/Machine Learning can and will be used to analyse and extract value from IoT datasets.
Will we see billions and billions of connected devices in the future? What types of networks will be used? What types of business models will emerge? Let us innovate and learn together!
