A global hackathon to found and explore the Internet-of-Ingestible-Things
What is the Internet-of-Ingestible-Things Hackathon?
This hackathon is a series of workshops bringing together experts from cybersecurity with medical device regulatory bodies and makers, to help design security for the "Internet-of-Ingestible-Things." Ingestible Things are internet-connected, ingestible medical devices such as smart gut-sensing pills.
Why the Internet-of-Ingestible-Things?
Studies show that our intestinal flora have the ability to combat disease, give us mental guidance, and in general keep us safe. We need to consider bio-cybersecurity early during medical design, now more than ever, as medical devices flood the market in response to COVID-19, which has only highlighted weakness in an overburdened healthcare system and in cyber-biosecurity supply chains.
When and where is this happening?
Join us online and in your own Makerspace, home office, or lab in Spring 2021.
