Former Syracuse U CIO to Teach IoT Course

The former chief information technology officer for Syracuse University will teach a course in the university's School of Information Studies (iSchool) on expanding technologies in the Internet of Things (IoT). Chris Sedore, now the president of the New York State Education and Research Network, will teach the course, “Digital Transformation,” to introduce students to both the tech and business sides of IoT, Syracuse News reported.

Due to the proliferation of devices connected to the internet, there will be an increased demand across various sectors (education, healthcare, manufacturing, etc.) “for people who understand the IoT in a business context,” Sedore explained. Plus, with major companies like Google and IBM making significant investments in IoT, there will likely be career opportunities in the future for those with a background in this area.

The class will be offered spring semester to iSchool students.
