IoT Community Diamond Member Panel

Abstract: IoT and Edge Predictions – What We See in the Next 5 Years The edge is a place where the “things” (the “T” in IoT) reside, which contain valuable pent up data. As the things are connected, the data computed and analyzed, and action taken to control the things and the enterprise — the business and societal benefits can be astounding. There is much more to come in the future as confidence in edge/IoT solutions builds, experiences mount, and the technology advances. Hear leaders from Cisco, HPE, SAS, and Zebra offer their specific predictions, their reasoning, and the resulting...

Keynote: Polymorphic Medicine – A New Model of Healthcare

Abstract: The rapid and widespread adoption of virtual care since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the tipping point for virtual care technologies and presents us with a once in a generation opportunity to radically transform our healthcare system by moving to an approach that we call Polymorphic Medicine. Polymorphic Medicine represents a paradigm shift towards the next evolution of healthcare. If the first decade of the 21st century was characterized by the “systemization” of healthcare with the introduction of electronic medical records, and the last decade saw the rise of genomic-based personalized medicine, we are now on...

Keynote: Exploring the Art of the Possible Through Industrial IoT

Abstract: So, exactly what is the art of the possible relative to Industrial IoT or IIoT? Today, more and more people and organizations are embracing IIoT technologies like smart meters, automated asset distribution systems, self monitoring electrical generation and transmission systems. Production lines, farm equipment and even the human body are being outfitted with smart sensors that tie to MLOps (machine or deep learning) systems integrating with model generation (software development lifecycle, continuous integration/continuous delivery), orchestration, and deployment, to health, diagnostics, governance, manufacturing and business. As complex as this may sound, it is actually as easy today as elemental arithmetic....

Diagnosis: Do You Have a Software Testing Problem?

Session Abstract: Is your software testing moving as fast as you’d like it to go? Do you feel confident that your next product release will be bug-free and delight users? If your answer is not “absolutely,” it’s possible you have a software testing problem, and hiring more testers is likely not the answer. Speaker: An educator-turned-developer, Daniel got his start in the software industry testing embedded automotive infotainment systems for Johnson Controls in 2014. While he was there, Daniel created new components for and maintained the company’s Python automated testing framework. Daniel held other QA-related roles until becoming a Software...

The Evolution of Chip to Cloud Security and Future Threats

Session Abstract: IoT promises an ecosystem where the connected devices will share massive amounts of data. Many of these devices are becoming intelligent with ability to analyse and implement actions. However, there is a simultaneous need to secure these devices from malicious attacks. This needs the provision of robust hardware and software at the device, in the network as well as in any cloud-level servers. We expect that AI, Machine learning and, potentially, blockchain, will emerge as valuable solutions to protect IoT data. However, before that lets fact-check the current security landscape. Traditionally, security circled around securing network and software...

Panel: Leveraging IoT to Stop COVID at the Door

Abstract: We are amid the greatest global pandemic. COVID has entered our world and we will never be the same. We understand to keep apart, wear masks, observe the slightest effect on our health to be able to discern as soon as possible did we catch COVD -or are we in fact fine. The latest facts are the development of a much more contagious and deadly variant. The latest news doe does not clarify if the newest prescribed vaccine will be able to protect us, and the information around getting a vaccine is- there is not enough for all at...

The surge in Adoption of Mobile Robots, the Aftermath, and Possible Solutions

Session Abstract: Mobile robot adoption has been increasing over the last couple of years across a wide range of industries. Some of the top leaders in this adoption have been the warehouse and manufacturing facilities, from automotive plants to fulfillment centres. As the robot fleet grows, the range of applications and tasks the robot performs is diversifying. No one manufacturer produces all types of robots and therefore the fleets are becoming heterogeneous. The issue arises in the communication between the robots from different vendors, the ability to work collectively rather than individually, and the integration to the facility IoT. Meili...

Achieving Accuracy and Affordability in IoT Asset Tracking

Session Abstract: Ranging has long been the gold standard for precision location systems, powering technologies such as GPS and Ultrawideband (UWB)—but at a cost: these systems are often too expensive for tracking most items and have onerous power requirements or finicky install procedures. This summer, Link Labs launched its next generation Real-time Location System (RTLS) that dramatically improves accuracy and affordability. With seven patented or patent-pending Link Labs technologies, it features accuracy everywhere at the sub-meter level, improved battery life at the tag level, reduced latency and reduced cost. Bob is the founder and CEO of Link Labs, a leading...

Business-Critical Devices and the Constraints of Regulation

Session Abstract: All industries have their business-critical functions, but as we see a shift of operations from traditional methods to the Internet of Things on a massive scale, the opportunities for terrorism, espionage, ransom, and other high-profile devastating attack scenarios are chilling. We can all imagine a doomsday-style attack that threatens the national power grid, exposes millions of medical records or holds a city hostage with a keystroke, but one step below these dramatic and unlikely scenarios, lie real threats to individual enterprises, and the customers they serve. These scenarios may not be the plot of a Hollywood thriller, but...

Global Market Access Risk Management

Session Abstract: As the proliferation of connected devices continues to grow on a global basis and coupled with over 200 countries and territories with mandatory product certifications, companies may be missing a critical piece of the risk management puzzle. We contend most would agree the economics of an IoT business works best when a global footprint can be attained. However, we continually observe companies are facing unknown product certification risks that are lurking just beneath the surface. To help companies anticipate potential certification risks for IoT devices we will present a risk management methodology especially designed for global market access....

Zero Trust Security for IoT

Session Abstract: The proliferation of connected devices like IoT, IoMT and OT has transformed businesses. But these devices also introduce a new attack surface, because they cannot be easily managed or protected with traditional security technologies. You cannot install security agents on unmanaged devices. You also cannot burden security operations by monitoring and investigating every issue on every device when are hundreds of thousands of these devices deployed. Enter Zero Trust security. The Zero Trust framework advocates for least privilege access, continuous monitoring and granular access control. It is in fact ideal for unmanaged devices like IoT because they have...
