Big Bang’s Jonathan Wagner on the Internet of Things

Jonathan Wagner created Big Bang to facilitate real-time collaboration for IoT projects.

“I was seeing that applications in general were moving toward real-time collaboration,” said Wagner. “That’s something that wasn’t possible a few years ago.”

Wagner wants people to think about the Internet of Things revolution as much more than clever consumer products. Inexpensive sensors can be used in a host of different infrastructure use cases, which will lead to the transformation of the public and civic spaces around us.

Wagner gives the example of a project they worked on as part of the Smart City Tech Summit. They connected data from several different organizations with an autonomous vehicle in order to respond to a mock active shooter scenario.

“We were able to deploy a response on scene within 30 seconds of this event occuring,” said Wagner. “All this was controlled through our platform.”
