The Vancouver Sun interviewed UBC mechanical engineering professor Yusuf Altintas about advances in machine-to-machine communication and how these can regenerate the workplace.

Altintas is an expert in manufacturing automation and works on a project aimed at creating intelligent machines.

“Every (machine) must communicate with one another. Machines must be very intelligent, self-adjusting, self-optimizing,” he said. “This is the Internet of Things.”
