They join other Premier Members -- Electrolux, Haier, LG, Microsoft, Panasonic, Qualcomm Connected Experiences, Inc., Sharp, Silicon Image, Technicolor and TP-Link -- and 53 Community Members united to overcome the interoperability challenges that impede the Internet of Things.

AllSeen Alliance represents the largest group of companies ever assembled to advance universal connectivity among a disparate range of objects and devices in homes and businesses.

As a leading manufacturer of audio, video, game, communications and information technology products, Sony brings to the AllSeen Alliance a shared vision for the Internet of Everything through the creation of a common, interoperable platform.

"Open source provides the unique ability to collaborate across company lines to advance technologies and enable change. The only way to build the future of ubiquitously connected devices is by working together," said Liat Ben-Zur, chairwoman of the AllSeen Alliance. "We're excited to welcome Sony to this thriving community, and look forward to their contributions to the AllJoyn open source project."

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
