Pramod Kumar
IoT Security Professional, Chair Member - National Cyber Defence Research Centre

Pramod Kumar is the CTO at P7 Technologies and his USP is - "Avoid repeating code".

He is an avid fan of embedded systems, IoT and BCI. He has worked both in the manufacturing and IT sectors. This has given him a great exposure and opportunity to work on various microcontrollers starting from the 8051 core, with hands on experience on both hardware and software.

Some of his interventions include
Designing and developing "ROBOT DOWN" mobile alert system for assembly line manufacturing systems.
Complete home automation systems for new buildings.
Designing and developing fully automated sound and time alarm systems for schools for blind children.
Heading the Indian operations for a German based IT company, functions included developing embedded systems for some of the top companies in the world including audio, machine vision and aviation domains.

In a recent assignment, he helped in setting up a complete IoT division and bringing all members upto track including hardware and software.

He had foretold about IoT way back in 2000, when he spoke of smart connected devices. His next prediction is the IoB, or the internet of brains!

His current passion is working on securing IoT systems and he holds the BISE certificate for cyber security. He is also working on developing systems using BCI or the brain computer interface.

Topic: IoT & BCI Security (Shared)

Hands on demo on building and hacking into IoT applications, with an introduction to some amazing BCI techniques.
With the central Govt announcing the development of smart cities in India, its high time you become a part of this trend. In addition there is a great scope in terms of a career in these fields.
Come, join us for a hands on demonstration of building IoT applications right from the hardware to the software. Then we will hack into the same!
Learn about BCI - brain computer interfaces and watch some real time demonstrations of the applications of EEG .
Using various sensors like PIR, ultrasound, and the Arduino development board, we will take you through a journey of actually building different applications like remote detection systems and a home automation system.
You wil also learn IoT comunication using bluetooth, ZigBee and WiFI.
At the end, the take away will be a clear understanding of what IoT is all about, how applications are built and the huge potential in the coming days for both building the applications and the security aspects.
