Professor Andy Stanford-Clark is a Distinguished Engineer in IBM’s global Internet of Things team. He is an IBM Master Inventor with more than 40 patents. Andy is based at IBM’s Hursley Park laboratories in the UK, and specialises in the Internet of Things, remote telemetry, energy monitoring and management, Smart Metering and Smart Grid technologies.

He has a particular interest in home energy monitoring, home automation and driving consumer behaviour change. Andy has a BSc in Computing and Mathematics, and a PhD in Computer Science. He is a Visiting Professor at the University of Newcastle, an Honorary Professor at the University of East Anglia, and a Fellow of the British Computer Society.

At TDC15, Andy will explain how his hobby of home automation and his passion for energy saving converges with the Internet of Things in his talk titled “Innovation Begins at Home”. This has led to projects that have helped alleviate energy poverty in social housing, and are providing new ideas and technologies for the future smart energy grid, which will be built from instrumented, interconnected, intelligent devices. He will illustrate his talk with examples from his home, including his twittering mouse traps!
